China web users mourn Steve Jobs
BEIJING (AP) — China’s popular Sina web portal has created a tribute page to Steve Jobs with a banner that reads: “To live is to change the world.”
The website is gathering comments from its microblog service, Weibo, where many people Thursday were posting photos and video of Jobs and flickering candle icons.
Former Google and Microsoft executive, Li Kaifu, pasted a photograph of a rainbow near Apple headquarters that a friend sent him.
“I think God made this specially for Jobs,” Li wrote.
Apple’s iPhones and iPads are assembled in Chinese factories run by Taiwan-owned Foxconn. The devices are hugely popular among Chinese, with knockoff products and even fake Apple stores popping up around China to meet demand.
