Apple temporarily closes stores for Steve Jobs memorial

Steve is being remembered.

Apple is still trying to do everything they can to remember their famous co-founder, and this includes giving all of their employees across the country the opportunity to properly grieve.

As the Associated Press is reporting, stores across the country will be closing at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time in order to broadcast online a memorial to Steve Jobs for all of its employees. Stores will remain closed for several hours, as the company hopes to both honor Steve’s life and inspire others with this webcast.

Jobs passed away earlier this month after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, but he chose to keep the vast majority of it out of the public eye. A private memorial for his friends and family has already been held.

Do you think this is a nice way for the company to show that some things do matter more than the bottom line?
