As news has of the passing of Steve Jobs spread tonight, people have started showing up at Apple's stores to pay tribute to its co-founder and former leader. We stopped by the 5th Avenue, NYC store and found this scene with many gathering to pay tribute through their thoughts, words and pictures. Outside there's signs and flowers, downstairs the store is packed. Apple headquarters featured a bouquet covered bench, adorned with homemade signs, and an iPad. In downtown San Francisco, people lit candles and placed post-in notes on the Apple store's windows. The images we've captured are in the galleries below, if you have something to share of your own then contact us via our tips form so we can include it here.
