Security heavy at private service for Steve Jobs

PALO ALTO, CA

It was unclear when the event started or how many were in attendance but reporters saw dozens of people walking from a church to another building. Soft music could be heard coming from there later.

Apple spokesman Todd Wilder tells reporters he's been there since 2 p.m. PDT. He says it's a private event and he can't release any details about it. Stanford has also declined comment.

Earlier, guards directed the handful of reporters to a parking lot several hundred yards away from Stanford's Memorial Church where the service was held.

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

Jobs was the mastermind behind popular gadgets such as the iPhone and iPad. He died Oct. 5 at age 56 after struggling for years with pancreatic cancer.
