Apple chief executive Tim Cook said today the company will hold a celebration of Steve Jobs life at a special event on Oct. 19.
In a memo to employees, Cook said the event will take place at 10 am at Apple’s outdoor amphitheater at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Although the memo didn’t say so, the event is not likely to be open to the public. Silicon Valley hasn’t seen an occasion like this since the public memorial service for David Packard, co-founder of Hewlett-Packard, who died in 1996 at the age of 83. That event was held at the Memorial Church at Stanford University.
