Apple commemorating Steve Jobs on October 19

MacGenerations received a copy of an email purportedly from Apple CEO Tim Cook, announcing the date and time for Apple's celebration of their late co-founder, Steve Jobs' life.


Like many of you, I have experienced the saddest days of my lifetime and shed many tears during the past week. But I've found some comfort in the extraordinary number of tributes and condolences from people all over the world who were touched by Steve and his genius. And I've found comfort in both telling and listening to stories about Steve.

Apple commemorating Steve Jobs on October 19


That's great to hear! He deserves a fitting tribute, mostly to remember what he was and what he stood for while he was alive, and what he will be for us throughout history.

Surely they'll have some kind of permanent fixture (a statue, or a road named after him?). The world is a different place without Steve Jobs in it. He should always be remembered.
