Happy Birthday Steve Jobs!

Apple CEO misses first shareholders meeting since 1997

It's a happy birthday today to Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs (born 1955)!

PC Advisor wishes Steve all the best for a speedy recovery!

For the first time since rejoining Apple in 1997 Jobs is reported to not be attending the annual Apple shareholders meeting, held tomorrow (February 25). Jobs took a six-month health-related leave of absence from Apple, starting this January.

Steve Jobs birthday February 24

Also born on this date: author Wilhelm Grimm (1786), actress Kristin Davis (1965), actor Billy Zane (1966), cricketer Derek Randall (1951), actor Dennis Waterman (1948), footballer Denis Law (1940), and champion motor-racer Alain Prost (1955).

Apple Corps founder and Beatle George Harrison - presumably a hero to Jobs - moved his birthday to February 24, despite his birth certificate stating he was born on the 25th.
