Last week Apple closed down Apple stores and the company campus to celebrate the life of Steve Jobs in a private memorial service. This service lasted just under two hours, and included speakers and musical guests who were there to honor the late Steve Jobs.
Apple has now posted the entire video online, as well as running the notes of remembrance sent in by Apple fans from across the world.
