Steve jobs:heart of apple inc and father of iphone


Steve Jobs was an American entrepreneur, business magnate, industrial designer, and investor. He was the chairman, chief executive officer (CEO), and a co-founder of Apple Inc., chairman and majority shareholder of Pixar, a member of The Walt Disney Company's board of directors following its acquisition of Pixar, and the founder, chairman, and CEO of NeXT. Jobs is widely recognized as a pioneer of the microcomputer revolution of the 1970s and 1980s, along with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

The early years

Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco on February 24, 1955, to two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave him up for adoption. He was raised in the Silicon Valley area of California by his adoptive parents, Paul and Clara Jobs.

Jobs's early interest in electronics began at age seven, when he was given a summer job soldering parts at Hewlett-Packard (HP). He later attended Homestead High School in Cupertino, California, where he became interested in computers after taking a calligraphy class that taught him about different typefaces. In 1972, Jobs graduated from high school and enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. He dropped out after one semester, but stayed on to take classes that he found interesting, including a course on calligraphy.

In 1974, Jobs took a job as a technician at Atari, Inc., a video game company. He then traveled to India with a friend, where he studied meditation and Buddhism. When he returned to the United States, he co-founded Apple Computer Company with Steve Wozniak in 1976. The company's first product was the Apple I, a personal computer kit that Jobs and Wozniak sold for $666.66

The founding of Apple

In 1976, Wozniak designed and built the Apple I computer. Jobs and Wozniak co-founded Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) in Cupertino, California, on April 1, 1976. They sold some of their possessions, including Jobs's Volkswagen van, to raise $1,300 to finance the build. The Apple I went on sale for $666.66. Jobs and Wozniak had different roles: Jobs was the visionary and Wozniak was the engineer. Wozniak designed and built the first Apple computers in his garage with Jobs's help. The pair founded Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) on April 1, 1976, with Jobs as chairman and Wozniak as president.

The return to Apple

In 1996, Apple purchased NeXT for $429 million, and Jobs returned to the company he founded. He became its interim CEO in 1997, and its permanent CEO in 2000. Under Jobs's guidance, Apple achieved unprecedented success, becoming one of the world's most valuable companies. He also oversaw the development of groundbreaking products like the iPod, iPhone and iPad. In October 2011, Jobs passed away due to complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 56 years old.

The legacy

Steve Jobs was an incredible innovator and one of the most successful businessmen of our time. He co-founded Apple Inc. and was the driving force behind some of the most iconic products in consumer electronics, including the iPod, iPhone and iPad. He also helped to revolutionize the computer industry with the development of the Macintosh. Jobs was a visionary leader and his impact on technology and business is still felt today. Even after his death in 2011, his legacy continues to inspire people all over the world.
