While in the Big Apple recently, my daughter wanted me to go with her to the "little apple," the 24-hour Apple Store on Fifth Avenue. --- After walking for what seemed like 20 blocks (because it was!), around midnight, we came upon a softly murmuring crowd outside the store. I was about to bail, thinking it was customers lining up for an early iPhone launch. It turned out to be fans who learned Apple founder Steve Jobs had died earlier that day. They were starting to create a memorial.
