Steve Jobs’ passing inspires more than verbal tributes

Famous on so many levels.

In the wake of Steve Jobs’ tragic passing on Wednesday, there is quite a bit going on when it comes to how people around the country are choosing to honor the Apple co-founder and master inventor.

First, TNT has decided that it will re-air its made-for-TV movie “Pirates of Silicon Valley” on Thursday night. The Emmy-nominated movie stars Noah Wylie as Jobs, Anthony Michael Hall as Bill Gates, and Joey Slotnick as Steve Wozniak — three men who helped found and shape the modern technology age.

Meanwhile, another company that Steve chose to frequently support is still looking for a way to honor Jobs. According to TMZ, clothing brand St. Croix is still deciding how best to tribute a man who famously wore many of their knit turtlenecks during some of his public appearances. (St. Croix also says that their sales are up 100% ever since the tragedy Wednesday night.)

One thing that is not increasing at the moment is the company’s stock. On Thursday, shares of Apple fell 1.6% according to early estimates — which actually may be seen as a positive sign by some since the damage on the market was minimal.

Stay tuned, as we’ll have more on Jobs moving forward.
