Apple holding private Steve Jobs memorial tomorrow

Apple will hold a private memorial for co-founder Steve Jobs tomorrow, for industry bigwigs and those close to Jobs.

Apple will hold a private memorial for co-founder Steve Jobs tomorrow evening, The Wall Street Journal reports. It will be held at Stanford University, where Jobs gave his legendary 2005 commencement speech.

A small private funeral was held for Jobs last week.

Attendees are expected to include industry bigwigs and those close to Jobs. An Apple spokesperson confirmed a private service to the paper, but didn't give any other details.

Those attending were asked to respond to Emerson Collective, a philanthropic organisation established by Jobs' wife, Laurene Powell Jobs.

Apple will hold a separate event for employees on its Cupertino campus on Wednesday, with other plans to be made for employees worldwide.

"Although many of our hearts are still heavy, we are planning a celebration of [Steve Jobs'] life for Apple employees to take time to remember the incredible things Steve achieved in his life and the many ways he made our world a better place," read the internal memo from chief executive Tim Cook, announcing the employee event.

Tributes to Jobs include a song composed entirely of sounds from Apple devices and quotes from Jobs himself, as well as testimonials from statesmen, actors, and technology giants. You can read our obituary here.
