Apple is holding a private memorial service for employees to celebrate the life of Steve Jobs. The service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at company headquarters in Cupertino; it will also be webcast to employees worldwide. Apple plans to close its retail stores for several hours so employees can watch the service online.
It's a sign of just how far and wide demand for Apple products has grown: the consumer-electronics store is about to open a store in Anchorage, Alaska. The new retail outlet, along with another one in Murray, Utah, brings the total number of U.S. Apple stores to 240.
