    Today would have been Steve Jobs' 57th birthday, and a number of Apple fans are taking the opportunity to commemorate his life and legacy, with the topic currently appearing on Twitter's list of top trending topics worldwide.

    Jobs passed away on October 5, 2011 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

    A pair of Apple fans in New York City are planning a party in Jobs' honor at outside Apple's flagship Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan.
    The party is planned to take place from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM today, and CNBC earlier today aired an interview with the two organizers about their plans.

    Coincidentally, today also marks the 12th birthday of MacRumors. The site has grown along with Apple and now reaches over 9.5 million unique visitors per month with roughly 70 million monthly page views. As always, we are grateful to our readers, contributors, sponsors, and all those for whom MacRumors is an online home or a regular stop.

    Had it once in California. Vegetarian is not bad. Tastes compared to cake is sort of like how is wheat bread vs. white bread.

    by vegetarian are they meaning no dairy/animal by products? in that case they might want to use the term vegan

    otherwise I don't see why they would say vegetarian at all, most birthday cake is made with no meat

    Vegetarian birthday cake? I'll pass. But the idea for this event is pretty cool. I hope those of you who are able to make it have a good time.

    According to the Steve Jobs biography, the vegan cake at the Jobs wedding was not popular with the guests.

    Really fine icings and fillings are made with lard.

    But I have a feeling they really meant vegan. In that case eggs would be an issue as well.

    I was guessing they meant vegan. I didn't know lard was against a vegetarian diet.

    Just finished reading the book of Steve Jobs. Everyone should read it, it's just amazing. Eating all his life healthy food and dying so young. It ain't fair.
    Congrats to Macrumors too. Already for 8 years i come here 3 times a day.
