Apple to Briefly Shut US Stores to Honor Steve Jobs

Apple plans to shutter U.S. retail stores for several hours Wednesday so employees can take part in a company-wide celebration of co-founder Steve Jobs' life, a person familiar with the celebration said.

Store employees in United States will use that time to view a live broadcast of the event, which is being held at an outdoor amphitheater at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.
The celebration — which will be held from 10 a.m. PDT to 11:30 a.m. PDT — will follow a private memorial service for the late tech visionary at Stanford University, expected to be attended by Silicon Valley luminaries, politicians and celebrities.
