Like the man it's about, "Jobs" is thin and unassuming, but keeps surprising you with ideas and innovation. -- Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

Today, February 24, is Steve Jobs' birthday. The visionary Apple co-founder, who died of pancreatic cancer in October 2011, would have turned 58 today.

The man responsible for technology innovations that shape our lives on a daily basis remains as beloved as any figure in the history of American business.

Steve Jobs wasn't merely a creative genius far ahead of his time, but was revered as a dear friend and an inspiring mentor by those who knew him.

He was also a showman who could give a keynote address like no other.

Whether he was introducing the world to a new product idea or discussing ones already created, he turned speeches and interviews into art forms.

Check out the awesome montage of Jobs clips from 1978-2011 above.

As previously reported, Ashton Kutcher will play Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic about the late Apple founder, and the first image from the film has hit the web.

Check out Ashton as vintage Jobs, circa 1983:

The film, jOBS (not a typo, that's how the movie title is stylized), will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which released the above image yesterday.

Outfitted in a button-down shirt, jeans, and a goatee, the Two and a Half Men star leans against a desk in front of an IBM poster with the slogan THINK.

Physically at least, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Jobs. Not convinced? Follow the jump and see the actual Steve Jobs photo upon which this is based:

In a casting move that is likely to stir up a bit of controversy, Ashton Kutcher will portray Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie.

The Two and a Half Men star will take on the iconic role of the Apple founder in Jobs, an independent film written by Matt Whiteley and directed by Joshua Michael Stern. It will begin shooting next month.

  • Ashton in NYC
  • R.I.P. Steve Jobs

Jobs passed away in October and is widely recognized as one of the finest, most innovative minds of our time.

Kutcher stars on a sitcom that revolves around penis jokes and has been in the news for the last year due to his own wandering unit and an affair with Sara Leal that led to his divorce from Demi Moore.

What do you think of Kutcher portraying Jobs on the big screen?

Russell Brand has Tweeted a hilarious confession to recent allegations that he ganked some paparazzi dude's iPhone and hucked it through a window.

The zany British comedian is accused of ripping an iPhone right out of the hands of a paparazzo in New Orleans and firing it toward a local law firm.

Police are investigating, but Russell Tweeted the following mea culpa:

Russell Brand Tweet

Wonder if that would hold up in court. Genius, in any case ... but THG does not condone window assaults via iPhone every time you see one misused.

Unlike Chris Brown, who's also being investigated for stealing an iPhone, Brand has since offered to pay for the device, as well as the window he broke.

Watch the throne ... Steve Jobs.

Kanye West, who has never been accused of thinking small, or having a modest opinion of himself, detailed plans for a new production company on Twitter Wednesday.

In a three-hour rant, the 34-year-old rapper / hip-hop mogul outlined his plan for Donda, a brand-new, far-reaching company named after his late mother Donda West.

Donda will "pick up where Steve Jobs left off," West said of the late, visionary Apple CEO / founder. Way to set manageable expectations. How will it do that, exactly, Kanye?

  • Kanye Smiles
  • R.I.P. Steve Jobs

With 22 divisions of writers, DJs, publicists, designers, musicians, scientists and SO much more, the company headed by the musician will strive to "make products and experiences that people want and can afford," West Tweeted.

He will "help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel," and "dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need... To marry our wants and needs."

Again, no baby steps for Mr. West.

Even Bill O'Reilly will have a hard time arguing this one.

On Wednesday, Barbara Walters announced her annual 10 Most Fascinating People list, and overtaking big names like Simon Cowell, Pippa Middleton, Katy Perry and the Kardashians was one person whose impact and legacy transcend all of them combined:

The late Steve Jobs.

The co-founder of Apple and the man responsible for numerous technology innovations that shape our lives on a daily basis, Jobs passed away this fall at age 56.

First diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2004, Jobs recovered, but it returned, and in 2009, he underwent a liver transplant. He resigned this summer as CEO.

At that point he became Walters' choice immediately, even though she never got to interview the man. Jobs is the first deceased Most Fascinating Person.

Truly a once-in-a-generation mind, Jobs was taken from us far too soon, but not before transforming technology - and modern life - in profound ways.

His fingerprints are on everything from the iTunes store to the iPod, iPhone, iPad, Pixar films and even the mouse. Yes, the mouse. In a word, he was awesome.

Steve Jobs: Good choice for Most Fascinating Person?

The release of Steve Jobs' biography by Walter Isaacson has been given the obligatory NMA treatment. What did the Taiwanese animators of current events do with this?

It's no Tiger Woods scandal reenactment, but it's close.

Ghost Steve Jobs as a technical Obi-Wan Kanobi, appearing before Tim Cook in hologram form, projected via iPhone 4: Too soon? Probably. Too funny? Definitely.

Steve Jobs passed away just a few weeks before the release of his widely-anticipated biography. According to the book (or at least Next Media Animation), Jobs:

  • Didn't ask to read his biography
  • Wished he'd had surgery to fight cancer sooner
  • Told Barack Obama he would become a one-term president
  • Told Bill Gates to broaden his horizons by dropping acid
  • Can use the Force to guide Apple from the great beyond
  • Plans to nuke Google and Android

Why read the book after this brilliant, cartoonish synopsis?

The morons at the Westboro Baptist Church announced plans last night to protest Steve Jobs' funeral, but even they can't resist Apple's really cool tech stuff.

Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s founder and a lawyer who represented the church during their First Amendment case at the Supreme Court (which Westboro won), Tweeted about the death of Steve Jobs using ... wait for it ...

Her iPhone.

“Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory & taught sin,” Margie tweeted, apparently unable to appreciate the irony in embracing the cutting-edge advancements of a decent man they somehow condemn.

One church member, Shirley Phelps-Roper, offered this take: She suggested that God was manipulating Jobs to help advance the message of Westboro Baptist Church, writing: “God used Steve Jobs to create amazing STUFF for WBC to preach!”

Amen, sister.

The Topeka, Kansas based church believes God punishes America for its tolerance of sin, acceptance of homosexuality, and so on. They often have demonstrated - legally but reprehensibly - at funerals of celebrities and armed service personnel.

They can suck it.
