Steve Jobs mourned by Apple workers, Cupertino residents
Apple workers were clustered at the front of the corporate headquarters taking pictures.
Peggy Fang, one of many local residents mourning Jobs' death, came to place a bouquet of flowers at the base of the flags. Several TV satellite trucks were parked in a lot nearby.
"I'm a Cupertino resident. I live down the street. I have a good life because of Apple stock. It's very sad," Fang said in tears.
Jobs "made such a big difference. Our property values went up," she said. "The whole city of Cupertino is different because of him. It was sad to see him leave. I was really surprised when I heard the news. We should have a Steve Jobs statue at City Hall.... Without him being here, the whole technology is different. He’s different, not like anybody else."
