As you read this, Apple is closing its stores for a 90-minute tribute to Steve Jobs. The event is being held at Apple's Cupertino, California headquarters and webcast to the live to the stores, for employees only. This is shaping up as Apple's day of mourning.

In addition to the closure and memorial, the company today also launched a "Remembering Steve" page, excerpting some of the more than 1 million email tributes it has received since its co-founder and former CEO passed away. Anyway, if you see closed Apple Store doors and are unable to pick up your new iPhone, buy an iPad, get your MacBook serviced or whatever, try not to flip out.
