A Steve Jobs memorial held at Stanford Memorial Church on Sunday attracted a huge number of people who came to pay their respects to Apple’s former CEO and co-founder. Among them were a long list of celebrities, musicians, CEOs, and even a former president.
While Apple has remained relatively secretive about the event, Apple 2.0 claims to have obtained a list of names who attended the event, including former U.S. president Bill Clinton; U.S. vice president Al Gore, who is a current member of Apple’s board of directors; actor Tim Allen, who plays Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story movies; British actor Stephen Fry; and Bono, lead singer of the band U2.
CEOs and chairmen from rival companies also turned out to pay their respects, including Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft; Larry Page, CEO of Google; John Warnock and Chuck Geschke, Adobe co-founders; Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO; and Michael Dell, CEO of Dell.
