Steve Jobs remembered, 65 years since birth
If he had lived, Apple’s Steve Jobs would have celebrated his 65th birthday today, probably with some fresh dent in the universe. As is customary each year, many of his friends and fans have wanted to remember him today.
The loss of Steve Jobs
Jobs died in 2011 following a lengthy battle with cancer at just 56-years old. His legacy remains, however, deep inside the DNA of Apple.
“The great man doesn’t think he is great. Those who say they are great are not. And those who are great are too busy being great to think about their greatness.”
The book was so important to Jobs that he arranged for a copy to be given to each person who attended his funeral.
What follows are just some of the highlights as people share tributes to him today.

It was 1988 Steve Jobs presented the most amazing insight about technology.
“This is field where one does not write a Principia which holds up for years—this is not a field where one paints a painting that will be looked at for centuries"

One of the fav quotes of #SteveJobs which always inspires me “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”Push yourself. Stay eager to learn, take risks, and keep trying to do what others say can’t be done.
Happy Happy birthday to you my idol Steve Jobs. pic.twitter.com/s9HiPyiG2q
