today hes fifty! some info:
Its so hard to believe he's that old. some info:
Steven Paul Jobs (born February 24, 1955) is best known as the co-founder (with Steve Wozniak) and CEO of Apple Computer, and somewhat less so for his leadership of Pixar. He is also regarded as a pioneer in computing for the incredibly successful Apple II computer, and also for seeing the commercial potential of the GUI and mouse in a Xerox PARC demonstration and leading Apple Computer to unleash the successful and very influential Apple Macintosh.
In 1972, Jobs graduated from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California and enrolled in Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but he dropped out after one semester. In 1976 Jobs and his friend Steve Wozniak founded Apple Computer, which became a significant player in the personal computer industry with the highly successful Apple II and Apple Macintosh. Jobs was perhaps the most famous person in the personal computer industry to the general public. In 1985 Jobs left Apple and founded NeXT Computer. In 1986 Jobs purchased Pixar from LucasFilm, which later became famous for a series of highly successful computer animation feature movies. In 1997 Jobs returned to Apple, which was in a failing condition, and turned the fortune of the company around beginning with the introduction of the iMac.

Jobs' first daughter, Lisa, was born in 1978. Jobs married Laurene Powell in 1991 with whom he has three children. She is not the mother of Lisa.

On July 31, 2004 Jobs underwent a surgical operation to remove a cancerous tumor in his pancreas. He had a very rare form of pancreatic cancer called an islet cell neuroendocrine tumor. He spent the following August recovering, though he stated he would not require chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Tim Cook, head of worldwide sales and operations at Apple, ran the company during his absence. Notably, in his email to staff at Apple informing them of his operation, Jobs managed to find time to note that he had sent his email via a 17-inch PowerBook using AirPort Express.

Fifty! Wow.

I've read a lot of old articles that talked about Steve (and Woz, of course) back when they were "kids" tinkering in the garage. Seems so...weird.

Collect 60 people in a room, and it is a statistical 100% certainty that at least two will have the same birthday. Not necessarily today or a certain day, but the same day nonetheless.

I keep thinking of Jobs and Gates and all those guys in the early days. What I would give to go back in time and tinker in their garages with them! Better yet, go back to 1985 with a G4 PowerBook and watch Jobs' jaw drop as he sees the future... then I'd have to zap him with a light pen thingy to erace his memory so the future wouldn't be screwed up. But I wouldn't mind going back to 1976 and telling Jobs "beware of Microsoft!"

why would that be good? When what would we compare mac to? you really think if M$ was not around and it was only mac we would have nearly as user friendly computers and OS? besides People forget apple is a hardware company which makes software to sell it.. Which is why the iPod is such a huge thing in the PC world. I saw a thread awhile back complaining that apple made the iPod USB 2.0 and FW optional... this is because they want to sell more iPods and the PC world is larger.

not exactly 100% probable:

set A to "no one in group has same birthday"
set Ac to "at least 2 people have same bday"

P(A) = 365!/[(365-60)!(365^60)] = .5877%

so the not probability of A, or Ac = 1-P(A) = 99.4%

easy to find minimum for 100% probability, replace 60 with a variable, x, and solve for x.
