Apple retail stores across the US were closed October 19 so that everyone could watch the "celebration of Steve Jobs' life" memorial held at an outdoor amphitheater at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California. The extraordinary, beautiful and moving event lasted for about 90 minutes, and employees were able to watch video of it on a live webcast. The event was not opened to the public nor the news media.
Watch Tim Cook, Bill Campbell, Jony (Jonathan) Ive, Al Gore talk about Steve. See performances by Norah Jones and Coldplay. Watch the special event, highly-recommended.
