Apple Posts Steve Jobs Celebration Video from October 19th


Apple has posted a video from the Steve Jobs memorial/celebration held on Apple's campus on October 19th, 2011. The 80 minute video is available on Apple's site. All of the retail stores were closed during the event so that everyone could watch. Apple CEO Tim Cook opens the video:
The last two weeks for me have been the saddest in my life by far. But I know Steve. And Steve would have wanted this cloud to lift for Apple and our focus to return to the work that he loved so much. So it's with that spirit, that we wanted to get the entire company together today to celebrate Steve's extraordinary life and many accomplishments he had across his life.
Update: It seems to not be working for some. (Note that streaming video requires Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Lion, Safari on iOS 3 or later, or QuickTime 7 on Windows.)

After reading some of these macrumor newbies comments, I wish Apple was just a little less popular and these types stayed with Windows.

Good damage control to release this before that rather borderline scathing 60 Minutes piece and the upcoming book revelations.


Watched the 60 Minutes piece earlier this evening. It wasn't scathing. His flaws were painted in the light that he's human like the rest of us.

Your sense of entitlement makes you utterly ugly.

Have a nice day.


I'm sorry that I have morals and believe I am worthy of an apology. People went on, post after post, insisting that I was dishonoring a man I admire by wanting to watch this event. Well, forgive me for having a moment of response to that when hearing the news it's been released. I am seeking an apology not just for myself, but for everyone who was called names in that thread because they wished to view this event. If I am "entitled" for standing up for myself after having been the target of public vitriol for hours on the other thread, so be it. Just finished viewing the ceremony and it was great. I believe it was just what was needed for closure and Apple has done the right thing by giving us the honor to view it.

I'd like an apology from all of the people saying that I was insensitive of the family's wishes and what Steve wanted because I thought this would eventually be posted and that it would be the right thing to do for those of us who are customers and admire Steve. I cannot believe the amount of vitriol spewed at me in the previous thread on this topic (posted the day of the celebration). I'm glad to see I was right and will now have the opportunity to watch this beautiful ceremony!

My favorite part:

When we used to travel together, we would check in, and I would go up to my room and leave my bags very neatly by the door and I wouldn't unpack. I would go sit on the bed next to the phone and I would wait for the inevitable phone call "hey Jonny this hotel sucks lets go." -Jonny Ive.

Where are all those people that were very adamant how this was a PRIVATE event and anyone posting videos or pics from it should be ashamed of themselves?

Jony's speech was so good. Please watch that part, you would all love it.

Jony Ive was brilliant. The words and the delivery were impeccable.
