Heavy security at Jobs service

Members of Silicon Valley's elite have gathered in California amid heavy security at a private memorial service for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

It was unclear when the event at Stanford University started or how many attended, but reporters saw dozens of people walking from a church to another down a tree-lined pavement.

Apple spokesman Todd Wilder said it was a private event and he could not release details. Stanford declined to comment.

Earlier, guards directed reporters to a car park several hundred yards away from Stanford's Memorial Church where the service was held.

Additional staff behind steel barricades allowed only a smattering of vehicles to enter the area.

Mr Jobs, the mastermind behind popular gadgets such as the iPhone and iPad, died on October 5, aged 56, after battling pancreatic cancer for years.
