Happy 54th Birthday Steve Jobs!

What do you do if you helped commercialize the home computer with the Apple II, made the GUI mainstream with the Mac, laid the foundation for many aspects of modern computing at NeXT, revolutionized the music industry with iPod and iTunes, changed the consumer electronic retail experience forever with Apple Stores, and restore innovation to the smartphone space with the iPhone? And... oh, yeah, sidelined in a little 3D paradigm shift in entertainment via Pixar?

Well, if you're one Steven P. Jobs, and it's today... Boom! You celebrate your 54th birthday.

On behalf of everyone here at TiPb, we wish you peace, prosperity, health, and happiness. Have a great birthday -- you're not quite done denting our universes yet!

Happy 54th Birthday Steve Jobs!


Steve, I hope you live another 54 years (and if anyone can make it happen, you can)!
Happy B-Day :)

Happy birthday to The Visionary.
P.S. Am I the only one who thinks it's funny that iAirmanshirk called iPhoneMilk "iPhone milf"?

Steve Jobs, Happy birthday to you from Amsterdam, the Netherlands!. We love you. Get well soon!.

Happy Birthday Steve, I hope for long and prosperous years for you and Apple! Keep on making visionary and mind-blowing products for all of us.

My first Mac at the Carnegie Mellon Design Studio in 1986 was the first Mac. How far we've come since then thanks to you. No other company, ever, has brought out such passion and has been such a game changer to my knowledge. I sincerely hope you're in good health and wish you a wonderful birthday surrounded by people that love you.
54 more!
