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."
