A birthday card for Steve JobsFebruary 24, 2011: 6:23 AM ET
Thousands around the world sign a website to wish him a happy 56th
The virtual card honoring Apple's (AAPL) CEO is the handiwork of computing students at Imperial College London. "Our aim," write ringleaders Raoul-Gabriel Urma and Gabriel Lorin, "is to allow as many people to wish him a happy birthday this way letting him know he has a back-up of so many."
