Private tribute to Steve Jobs planned for SundayOctober 15, 2011 in Technology / Business
Internet royalty have been invited to a memorial to be held for Steve Jobs on Sunday at Stanford University in Silicon Valley.
Apple said the event was private and that even press would not be permitted unless they were on the guest list.
Responses to invitations were reportedly directed to Emerson Collective, a philanthropy founded by the Apple co-founder's wife, Laurene Powell Jobs.
Jobs died in on October 5 at the age of 56 after a years-long battle with cancer. He was buried in a private ceremony at a non-denominational cemetery three days later.
Jobs was also to be honored during an October 19 memorial for Apple employees at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, California.
Apple has not indicated plans for a public memorial for Jobs, but people have paid tribute to him with flowers, candles, messages and more outside his home, the company headquarters and Apple retail stores around the world.
