IN REMEMBRANCE, Apple closed its stores for several hours yesterday so that its global workforce could participate in the memorial for its deceased co-founder Steve Jobs.

Store windows were shuttered with white sheets to allow the proceedings to take place in private and it is likely that staff used their downtime to join in watching a video presentation that celebrated Jobs' life, achievements and contributions to the Apple business.

Stores were closed for three hours, 9am to noon California time, according to Reuters, while at the same time the company published its collection of emailed tributes to Jobs.

Apple had already held a private memorial that the great and the good from the entertainment and technology industries attended. Jobs had a private funeral for his close friends and family. µ
