The European showcase for all things Apple has fallen victim to last week's terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Apple Expo, which was to have taken place in Paris Sept. 26-30, is cancelled.
"We're cancelling Apple Expo in the wake of last week's devastating and tragic events," said Steve Jobs, Apple Computer Inc.'s chief executive officer (CEO), according to a message on the show's Web site http://www.apple-expo.com/ on Monday. "We're sorry to disappoint our users and developers, but their safety is our primary concern," the message concluded.
A spokeswoman for the show's Paris-based organizer, Reed-OIP, confirmed that Jobs had cancelled the show, which Reed runs on behalf of Apple.
