Russia has taken down a memorial to Steve Jobs in St. Petersburg after Job's successor, Apple CEO Tim Cook came out as gay. The memorial is a six foot high representation of an iPhone with a touchscreen that displayed information about Steve Jobs and Apple, a company which he co-founded. It was erected outside a St. Petersburg college in January of 2013, by an organization of Russian companies known as ZEFS. They cited a Russian law which prohibits gay propaganda in public places accessible to minors as the reason why they took down the memorial. But then again, it is a memorial to Steve Jobs who, by all accounts, we know as straight; it'll be interesting if Russia plans to purge all public material with any hint of a relation to any LGBT person. Good luck with that. St. Petersburg and Moscow may end up looking more dreary than Stalingrad in World War II.
