Had he lived, Apple’s legendary co-founder, Steve Jobs, would have hit 60 today, a birthday that's being noted across social media feeds.

No surprise that Steve Jobs is trending on Twitter today. Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote: “Remembering Steve, who would have turned 60 today. ‘The only way to do great work is to love what you do.’”
Cook last year remembered his friend by saying, “We honor him by continuing the work he loved so much.”
Steve Jobs (born 1955) was the guru of digital disruption, from the PC to the iPhone, from iTunes to the iPod, iPad, even Pixar. “Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything,” he once said. He was fortunate enough to be part of that process many times in his short life, setting events in motion that continue to change the world today. How can we remember him?
The good book
Jobs read one book every year, Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda. The book was so important to Jobs that he arranged for a copy to be given to each person who attended his funeral, as Salesforce.com’s Marc Benioff confirms above.
“I knew that this was a decision [Jobs] made, and whatever it was, it was the last thing he wanted us all to think about,” said Benioff.
