Fans host Steve Jobs birthday party at Fifth Avenue store

updated 03:45 pm EST, Fri February 24, 2012

Apple co-founder would have turned 57

Two New York City Apple fans are hosting a posthumous birthday party for Apple co-founder Steve Jobs outside Apple's Fifth Avenue retail store, the New York Post reports. The event is already underway, but should last until about 5PM Eastern time. People are expected to dance to music by Bob Dylan while the event's organizers hand out vegetarian birthday cake and black turtlenecks.

Jobs died of pancreatic cancer on October 5th. Had he survived, today he would have been 57. The executive developed a cult following during his lifetime, mainly for being so closely linked to his company's popular products.

    Vegetarian Birthday Cake?

    What sort of weird universe doesn't explode at the notion of a non-vegetarian birthday cake?

    Only 56 when he died, it's just so tragic. I'm glad to be celebrating his life rather than spend too much time lamenting his death, however. Truly a mix of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and Walt Disney for this generation, a man of true taste (sadly rare these days), an untamed (or spoiled, if you prefer) rebel (who could be a jerk/cad/a** sometimes), a revolutionary and a visionary. A complex person trying to stay afloat in a sea of mediocrity.

    Dear Steve,

    We miss you. I still can't believe you're gone but ever so glad for what you've given us and left behind.

    The two gents that put together this party went on CNN to talk about it, claiming they did it out of respect for Steve. Something tells me that using his death and 'life' to get their 15 minutes of fame is something that Steve would not find so respectful.
