(Updated to downplay Baez's role) A partial list of the people present at Sunday's private memorial for Steve Jobs has been published, says Fortune. Among the people there were Apple executives Tim Cook (CEO) and Scott Forstall (senior VP for iOS), and board members Bill Campbell and Al Gore. Former US President Bill Clinton was also in attendance; one of the people most closely connected to Jobs, though, may have been singer Joan Baez, who once dated him during the late 1970s and early '80s.
The BBC is holding an unspecified event which may be tied to an Apple announcement of the second-generation iPad, a British report suggests. Apple has a special press event scheduled for March 2nd in San Francisco, starting at 10AM local time. The BBC event is said to be a go for 6PM GMT that day, which could mean that some live interaction between the UK and US is planned.
