Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah Jandali, a couple of singles that put her first child up for adoption. Raised by Paul and Clara Jobs, Steven Paul Jobs was raised in California and shows a great interest in electronics from an early age.
In high school, he found a soulmate in Steve Wozniak, a man who shared his passion for technology and jokes. The friendship that play a key role in the development of Apple and career of work.
They both your feet wet in the world of technology by selling so-called “blue boxes,” devices that gave users the ability to make free long distance.
After graduating from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Oregon in 1972. He retired after one semester, but remained in the area for another 18 months of audit, and calligraphy classes.
In 1974, he returned to California and began working at Atari, a video game company early. He was also on a spiritual journey to India with a friend, which marks the beginning of his interest in Eastern philosophy and religion, including Buddhism.
In 1976, Wozniak and Jobs of Apple Computer Company opened. Dramatic increase in the technology giant, the fall and rise could be related to Jobs’ own life.
First model of the company, Apple I, was a simple circuit board, which was sold to computer enthusiasts. Their follow-up, however, proved a huge success, jumping to an unknown company into a household name. Created in 1977, the Apple II was the first computer at home the whole story, which went fully operational right from the box. It has revolutionized the pop industry.
Many of Apple’s credit, and employment, with the change in the perception of what a computer can be – from a high-tech tool used only by the business world of science to a common device used by ordinary people.
Apple and the economic fortunes of its co-founder continued to grow. After the initial public offering of the company in 1980, Jobs was worth over 200 million U.S..
After the initial success of the Apple II, the company – and jobs – suffered a series of setbacks. The Apple III had bad sales are concerned. When IBM entered the market in 1981 with his computer, put pressure on Apple, with the PC over time a greater share of computer sales.
Apple launched the Macintosh in 1984, whose design was overseen by the Employment. Despite some initial successes, the team did not sell as well as expected.
During this time, many of Apple became dissatisfied with the job management style, especially after several of its Macintosh project engineers learned that they were paid less than teams in other projects. Much of this came to a head in 1985 when Jobs fought Sculley CEO to control the company. Jobs attempted a coup boardroom, but it backfired. He ran out the administrative responsibility of Apple, but remained chairman. He resigned from the company that year.
Jobs next adventure was beginning NeXT Computer, which hoped the design of advanced equipment for higher education and research. Like the Apple II computers that followed, the NeXT Cube turned out to be largely a commercial failure, despite its impressive computing power.
During this time, Jobs also came into contact with a small group of graphics experts who were willing to start making computer-animated movies. In 1986, bought the little-known company, Pixar, George Lucas for 10 million U.S.. As NeXT, the company was initially unsuccessful and was forced to use smaller.
Things began to change jobs after Pixar signed with Disney to create the first animated film Computer, Toy Story. Launched during the holiday season in 1995, the film was a success and helped propel Jobs back into economic success – and the projector.
Found jobs back to the company he helped found the next time it was bought by Apple in 1997 for 1.5 million shares and the U.S. and more than 400 million. That same year, Jobs was named interim CEO of Apple, after the company reported a huge loss. It was to reorganize the company and once again become a for-profit company.
During the restructuring, many employees said they were concerned about meeting the head of Apple in the lift, for fear they would not have a job for the moment the doors opened.
In 1998, Apple launched a simple to use, iMac, an improvement over previous models, with an aesthetically pleasing design. It was well received and helped restore the company’s brand. Jobs has always had an eye for what the consumer wanted.
Jobs was named CEO of Apple in 2000. He jokingly referred to himself in the moment the iCEO.
Over the years, the company continued to produce a series of successful products, especially the iPod, which would come to dominate the MP3 player market. The success and the recommendation would be to follow Apple and employment over the decade.
In 2007, Apple introduced the iPhone, with great success. The company followed this success with the release of IPAD in 2010.
In 2010, Jobs was ranked as the 42nd-richest person in the United States, with a net worth of more than 6000 million and U.S.. He also ranked 17th in a list of most powerful people in the world.
In 2004, Jobs announced he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He took a month off for treatment and recovery.
He took another medical leave from January to June 2009, during which he underwent a liver transplant.
In an email sent to Apple employees on January 17, 2011, Jobs said he was taking a medical leave and the third will be adapted to Tim Cook in charge of daily operations. In the memo, Jobs said he would still be involved in major strategic decisions of the company.
A month later, Jobs was among a group of a dozen top technology executives invited to a meeting with the U.S. President Barack Obama in San Francisco as part of its effort to focus on high technology initiatives.
