Californiaâ€™s governor has chosen a day to dub as Steve Jobs Day: Oct. 16, the same date Apple will hold a memorial at Stanford University.
In aÂ tweetÂ sent to his more than 1 million followers Friday night, Gov. Jerry Brown said, â€œThis Sunday will be Steve Jobs Day in the State of California.â€
JobsÂ died Oct. 5Â and was buried two days later during a small private funeral. Since his passing, the world â€” including U.S. PresidentÂ Barack Obama, Microsoftâ€™sÂ Bill GatesÂ and Facebookâ€™sÂ Mark ZuckerbergÂ â€” has mourned his passing and celebrated his achievements.
Several memorials also have cropped up to honor the man who co-founded Apple withÂ Steve Wozniak.Â The New York TimesÂ reportedÂ Friday night that Oct. 16 also will be when Apple holds a memorial forÂ JobsÂ at Stanford University for â€œprominent Silicon Valley executives.â€ Jobs famously gave aÂ commencement speechÂ at Stanford in 2005.
Previously, Apple announced it would put on an employees-onlyÂ memorial on Oct. 19Â at company headquarters in Cupertino, Calif.
