Apple Store Goes Down Online On One-Year Anniversary of Steve Jobs’ Passing



On the one year anniversary of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ passing, Apple’s online retail store goes down with its typical post-it note saying “we’ll be back soon.” Apple didn’t give any reasons for why the store is down, however, except to say that it is updating the Apple store.

Steve Jobs had passed away on October 5, 2011 in Palo Alto, California.

Apple periodically updates its stores without any new products or announcements from time to time as part of regular maintenance. On announcement days and on days when products are released, Apple does take down its online store in advance to prepare new products and update its store front. Right now, there isn’t any known new products that will head to the store that isn’t already there or available for preorder.¬†Apple is rumored to be announcing the iPad Mini later this month, however.

    Today is the anniversary for the death of Steve jobs, he died from pancreatic cancer after trying everything he could to avoid it. I think we should try to do something, even though we can’t save him.

    I’m fundraising a research program that had a possible treatment, but because there was no way to obtain a patent, big pharma won’t fund the research.

    I’m looking for people who like me, want to help and people who are avid promoters and fundraisers, if you can help me with advocating my campaign or pushing it in your corner of the world, I’d be very grateful, reply in the comments and I’ll get back to you. Thanks!
