Steve Jobs’ very private funeral, held on Friday near Palo Alto, California, has sparked intrigue among Apple fans, some of whom have written on messageboards of their desire to make pilgrimages to the location.
The exact site of Jobs’ grave has not been made public and the family is likely to want to avoid it becoming a shrine. But in the absence of anywhere else to go to pay their respects, many fans seem to be keen to locate the grave in order to pay a final tribute to the man regarded as one of the key figures in modern computing.
Some have even called on Apple to set up a permanent memorial to Jobs in a more accessible and appropriate location, in an attempt to discourage mourners from going to find the actual grave.
Despite all the talk about where Jobs’ grave is located, it hasn’t even been confirmed that there is a grave. It’s perfectly possible, for example, that he was cremated and his ashes were scattered somewhere. None of which looks set to deter the grave-finders who are probably already setting off to find the right spot.
