In honor of the late Apple founder and iconic media superhuman Steve Jobs, CEO Tim Cook announced that all Apple Stores would be closed today. A private memorial service for Jobs started this morning at Apple’s Cupertino headquarters, according to the Associated Press. The service is also being simulcast to all Apple employees across the world — though presumably not in Shenzhen — to allow employees to, in Cook’s words, “take time to remember the incredible things Steve achieved in his life and the many ways he made our world a better place.” Wouldn’t it be awesome if LSD were involved, as part of Apple’s “Broader Guy” initiative? Sigh. We miss you already, Steve.
