Apple publishes Steve Jobs' memorial service video

The past few weeks news has flooded in since Steve Jobs' passing, and Apple last week celebrated his life with a memorial service fit for the man who changed Apple for the better.

Apple has since published the video on their website, making it available for the public to view. The memorial service was heavily guarded, and was closed to the media and the public, and Apple as of yet has not held any public events for Steve Jobs. It's not expected the company will, either.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO said that the past two weeks have been the saddest of his life, but went on to say that "I know Steve. Steve would have wanted this cloud to lift for Apple and our focus to return to the work that he loved so much." Cook also shared Steve's last piece of advice at the service, saying that Jobs had said "to never ask what he would do, just do what's right."

Even former vice president Al Gore took the stage at the event, as he is a current board member. Bill Campbell, current board member at Apple said "[Steve] loved Apple so much, probably only a shade less than he loved his family." It's sad to see Steve Jobs passing, but the company is looking forward, and doesn't want to be paralyzed by thinking "what would Steve do" when going through its daily activities. 

According to the AP, Tim Cook said that "Jobs saw how The Walt Disney Co became "paralyzed" after founder Walt Disney's death, with so many people spending time thinking about what Disney would want. "And he did not want this to occur at Apple."

Closed ceremony but then publish it to the world..... typical media whores that Mapple are. Actually surprises me theirs not a "donation" included for watching it.

"to never ask what he would do, just do what's right."

Does that include suing the bajesus out of everyone to cut down competitors?

Just the ones that have stolen patented ideas. Luckily a court will decided whether thats the case, not you.

They should take Steve Jobs and his coffin and shoot it off into space headed towards a "Black Hole" so then the evil will never escape. :-)

Another attempt to be Micheal Jackson. Sorry but his biography revealed to the world many nasty things about this so called "god" human being.

Then why do i need a plugin to play them? Win7 and IE9 have built in support for H264…

I liked Steve Jobs, sure. Do I give a **** that he's dead? No not really. They're ****ing treating him like a god.

Heaven forbid they pay respect to someone who gave them a job and or lucrative career.

At this point I'm so sick of him, I'm in a "burn in hell" mode instead of RIP.

RIP Dennis Ritchie

The Unix group could have held and recorded a Memorial service for him. Plus you are in the wrong thread.

If you have nothing good to say... Post it on a forum because every thought you have must be published!

Can we say the same about Job's selfish and arrogant comments in his biography?

Why do I feel like someone just tried to shove a toolbar down my throat? I'll wait for the YouTube video Steve, I mean I respect you and all but if my Apple friends won't download Silverlight, then dammit, I won't download QuickTime! hehehehe

Why would anyone want to watch this?

A lot of people feel some sort of sentimential attachment to jobs, I think.
