New Yorkers and tourists alike stopped last Sunday to read notes posted at the Apple Store at 14th Street and Ninth Avenue since the October 5 death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The notes expressed thanks, a sense of loss, and admiration for Jobs’ innovative work, and soon spread to cover several windows; the Fifth Avenue Apple store has a memorial mural as well. ¬†Jobs, who was diagnosed with a rare pancreatic cancer in 2003, died just over a month after he stepped down as Apple’s CEO, citing health problems, and one day after new CEO Tim Cook introduced the iPhone 4S, Tuesday October 4th.
