The governor of California, Jerry Brown, declared yesterday, the 16th of October as Steve Jobs day. It was the same day that Apple held a memorial for Jobs at Stanford University. Jobs passed away on the 5th of October and was buried two days later. The governor posted on his Twitter account on Friday that the State of California will celebrate Sunday as Steve Jobs day.
Yesterday was Steve Jobs day in CA
Steve Jobs was a native Californian himself, it makes sense that the State of California dedicates a day to the tech leader. Jobs was born in San Francisco and brought up in Mountain View while attending schools in Cupertino, all in the bay area of California. Apple is holding an employee only memorial for Jobs on October 19th and many tech leaders, including rivals like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, have put former rivalries behind to pay their respects to Jobs. Even the heir of Samsung had attended the memorial at Staford University.
