Apple Posts A Celebration of Steve’s Life Online
Apple has posted a link on its website to a video of the company’s memorial services for its employees to celebrate the life of its founder Steve Jobs.
The event, held last Wednesday in an outdoor amphitheater at Apple campus, was closed to the public. Reporters were even asked to stay away from the Apple premises during that time. The company also closed all its retail stores so that employees could view the memorial service via webcast.
The video which runs 81 minutes is Apple’s way of sharing to the public the company as they mourn the death of Jobs at the age of 56 on October 5 due to a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said the past two weeks had been the saddest of his life:
“But I know Steve. Steve would have wanted this cloud to lift for Apple and our focus to return to the work that he loved so much.”
Cook also revealed that the last piece of advice that Jobs gave him was “to never ask what he would do, just do what’s right.”
Jobs’ wife Laurene Powell and former Vice President and Apple board member Al Gore were also present during the event.
Despite not being involved with Apple, how do you celebrate Steve’s life? Or is this just another passing of a great mind?
