Steven Paul Jobs was an American entrepreneur, designer, and inventor. He was the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Computer. Apple’s revolutionary products have been dictating modern technology’s evolution with products like the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. He was born in 1955 and given up for adoption by his birth parents.
He was a smart kid growing up but directionless. He dropped out of college and indulged in several pursuits, including some unsocial ones. In 1976 he founded Apple with partner Steve Wozniak. He left the company in 1985 after investing in Pixar Animation Studios and then eventually returned to Apple after a decade.
Steve Wozniak and Jobs are credited with revolutionizing the computer industry. They single-handedly democratized the technology, made machines smaller, intuitive, cheaper, and easily accessible to ordinary people. His legacy is still going strong even after his death, and his quotes give an insight into the great mind he had.
