Happy Birthday Steve Jobs!


Umm, how about ">Here's< wishing Steve Jobs peace, prosperity, health and happiness!"
INDEED! Apple is no longer dependent on just one man's drive and inspiration, but it certainly got to that point largely as a result of one man's vision.
I still have my Apple ][+.

Haha I just found out my birthdays on the same day as steves. Maybe next year me and him can have a combined bday party for my 18th and his 57th

Pesky kids.......get out of my way! I need another liver transplant and I'm jumping to the head of the line, again! I'm too important.....this world needs me.....you need me....

Happy Birthday to one of the most amazing men ever. While I wish him the happiest birthday and a very speedy recovery, Im saddened by the bitter truth when I think that this may be the last birthday he will celebrate. Lets appreciate all that he has done for Apple and try to think positive in these dark times upon us ....
Happy Birthday Mr Jobs !

I doubt Steve reads this blog, but you never know. I wish Steve a Happy Birthday and hope he has many more!

I really hope that Steve Jobs will soon be able to once again enjoy his tremendous success and not have to continue to suffer while his company is in the best shape of its life. I have never had so much fun with computers and gadgets until the time I "joined" the Apple ecosystem in Dec. 2009 and the company is great to work with.
His commencement speech at Stanford in 2005 was very moving and inspiring when he was brutally honest about (narrowly) escaping death in the year prior and he also shared two other highly personal stories with the Class of 2005. Then we had the whole transplant that he had to endure in 2009 and now he's on medical leave of indeterminate length. It's both tragic and infuriating.
Please come back to us soon, as that will mean that your health, the single most important aspect of life, will have turned around for you.
