HQ flag flies at half-mast

THE US flag flew at half-mast at Apple's Cork HQ yesterday in the wake of Steve Jobs's death.

The computer giant employs more than 2,000 people at its campus in Hollyhill, outside Cork city, which opened in 1980.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny yesterday said Mr Jobs's legacy would be the visionary products he created and how he changed the way people think and feel about technology.

"Steve Jobs was a creative genius who broke down walls in business and opened doors in people's minds," Mr Kenny said.

According to Dan Byrne, Apple's former vice-president, Mr Jobs visited the Cork HQ several times.

Apple also recently established a new customer support centre in Cork city which is expected to employ a further 350 people.
