Security heavy at private memorial for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Security is heavy at Stanford University as some of Silicon Valley's elite gather for a private memorial for Steve Jobs.
Guards directed the handful of reporters to a parking lot several hundred yards away from Stanford's Memorial Church where the service was being held.
Additional personnel behind steel barricades allowed only a smattering of vehicles to enter the area.
It was unclear when the event started or how many were in attendance.
The Wall Street Journal has reported that invitations have gone out, but Apple and Stanford officials have not releasing any information about the event.
Jobs, who co-founded Apple Inc. and was the mastermind behind popular gadgets such as the iPhone and iPad, died Oct. 5 at age 56 after struggling for years with pancreatic cancer.
