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!
