The ones who are crazy enough to think that the can change the world are the ones who do. -Steve Jobs.
Over the past fourty years, the computer industry has taken fantastic leaps and bounds to where it is today. One of the most influential people during this time was Steve Jobs. He was born on February 24, 1955 in San Fransisco, California. His biological parents put him for adoption. Then, Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs.
Throughout his childhood, the father showed Steve how to work on electronics in the family garage, demonstrating to his son how to take apart and rebuild electronics such as radios and televisions.
Later on, he was introduced to Steve Wozniak by a mutual friend. They shared a love for electronics. They started working on an ambitious project, a personal computer that people could have anywhere in their home or office. Wozniak was responsible for the electronics and Steve concentrated on the design. Steve Jobs saw technology like nobody else did before, thinking out of the box was his key to success. Everytime he fell, he got up stronger. He never quit trying.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. -Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs played a key role in the creation of the Apple 2, Macintosh, iMac, MacBook, iTunes, iPhone and iPad.
He died in 2011 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
