Steve Jobs HK Memorial Apple Legend Remembered

[06/10/11] 

A memorial for Steve Jobs will be held tonight (Oct 6) at 7pm. Dubbed the iVigil, it will take place in the IFC outside the new Hong Kong Apple Store. The response to his death has been quite extraordinary - here are just some of the things being said about him:

Microsoft boss Bill Gates said his "profound impact" would " be felt for many generations to come". Adding, "For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it's been an insanely great honour. I will miss Steve immensely."

US President Barack Obama also paid tribute: "Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it."

And New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said that "America lost a genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein, and whose ideas will shape the world for generations to come".

He will be sorely missed.
