Apple posts Steve Jobs celebration video

Video of employees' memorial for late Apple co-founder features speeches by Al Gore and CEO Tim Cook, as well as performances by Nora Jones and Coldplay.

Thousands of employees attended a companywide celebration of Steve Jobs. Apple

Following an employees' memorial to its late co-founder, Apple is posting a video recording of the event on its Web site.

Apple held the Steve Jobs celebration for its employees at its headquarters and at its retail locations on October 19.

The video was visible a first, but later the Celebrating Steve page said. "Available soon. Please check back later." (As of 9:45 a.m. PT Monday, the page and video are up and running just fine.)

Former Vice President and Apple board member Al Gore spoke, as did new chief executive Tim Cook and Apple design guru Jonathan Ive. The 80-minute video also features musical performances by Coldplay and Nora Jones.

That event at the Cupertino, Calif., campus followed a private memorial for Jobs on October 16 in which friends, family, and colleagues gathered amid heavy security on Stanford University's campus to pay tribute to the late Apple co-founder.

Jobs, who died October 5 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, was buried a few days later during a private, non-denominational funeral in Santa Clara County.
