So today is my 30th and I thought it’d be nice to have birthday wishes from Steve Jobs. So I emailed and asked him if he’d mind wishing me a happy birthday. Just minutes later I received this reply from him. Amazing. Unbelievable. I know Steve and I had our rough moments in the past so I honestly didn’t expect a reply back from him.

There is something wrong with this email though, but I can’t figure out what it is exactly. Is there anything out of place in there?

One last thing… Don’t tell me it’s a fake, because it’s not… Not!

    What’s his email?

    • Marco

      yeah share share… lets spam steve :p

  • Marco

    sent from his bb pearl? hmmm thats strange

  • Billy

    “Sent from Blackberry Pearl”


  • Steve Jobs using a BB? I donΒ΄t think so

  • Steve Jobs is replying your from a BB phone???? I believe this Steve Jobs is your old/school fellow.

  • Burntnacho

    Blackberry pearl, nice!

  • V1tru

  • This is so fake…You can clearly tell he sent this from his Blackberry Playbook =P

  • Gambitofree

    Happy Birthday – Flash those Pearly Whites πŸ˜€

  • LOL!

  • Sebastienislame

    What a waste of space you are!

  • Happy Birthday!

    Do BlackBerries even have a default “Sent from” in its e-mail client? Anyway, the it should be “BlackBerry” not “Blackberry.”

    I think you just got Steve Jobbed!

    • Yeah I think Blackberries have something similar. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

  • I thought it was pretty clear this was a fake… But apparently it’s not clear enough so let me clarify this for you: yes it is a fake. Pretty obvious, isn’t it?

  • SpideyRules

    I’m going to start naming my contacts with big rich people so I can name-drop too! πŸ™‚

    Happy B/day Seb ....hope you have a nice flight..and does this mean that iDB is going to be updated on GMT +1 time ?

  • Z

    There are better things you can do on your birthday. Give up on us and iDB for at least one day. Enjoy your round number, take a break from work, and we’ll take a break from you =P

    Happy Birthday, SeaBuss, all the best and warmest wishes!

  • T-Mizzle

    Happy 30th Birthday, Sebastien!!

    Sent from my iPhone


  • Thank you all for the good birthday wishes.

    @Burge Since I’ll be in France, chances are articles will be published at GMT +1. I’ll try to keep the none “newsy” pieces on US schedule though.

    Happy Birthday kind of late in the day. Hope it was a great day. Did you get any fun presents? πŸ˜‰

    • Yes I did get the best gift ever. My fiancee got me 2 hours of flight training. She knows I’ve always wanted to fly so she got me this amazing gift. She’s a keeper πŸ˜‰

      • AppleBits

        Wow!! Now that is a great present! Have fun! You’re fiance sounds very thoughtful!t

  • I think Steve is facing antenna issues on his iPhone 4.. So, he used a BB to reply your mail πŸ˜€
