Celebs turn out to bid farewell to Jobs

Simon Quicke

A former President, frontman of one of the largest rock bands and Apple executives stood shoulder to shoulder last night to bid farewell to Steve Jobs in a memorial service.

Apple staff will get their chance on Wednesday to mark their own tribute to their former CEO who died last week but last night was the chance for a selected audience including Bill Clinton, Bono and Tim Cook, the man who replaced Jobs as CEO to say their goodbyes.

A private memorial service held in California comes just four days after the funeral and with magazine covers and Apple stores continuing to express the shock of the death of Jobs, who was only 56 although he had been battling with cancer, in the same week as the vendor launched iPhone 4S and broke its own sales records for a new phone.
