Steve Jobs

"We started out to get a computer in the hands of everyday people, and we succeeded beyond our wildest dreams."-Steve Jobs

Time Line

1955

February 24: Steven Paul Jobs was born in San Francisco

While he was at Atari, Steve asked his boss to fund a trip to India for him. Atari did pay his trip up to Germany, where he had to work on fixing some Atari machines. Then Steve was joined by his hippie friend from Reed, Dan Kottke, and they went to India in search for enlightenment. They came back pretty disappointed, especially after they met a famous guru, Kairolie Baba, who, unlike what they expected, was a con man.

Steve really didn’t care about school for some time until he reached 4th grade, and had Imogene Hill as a teacher. She did bribe him with candy and $5 bills from her own money. He quickly became hooked so much so that he skipped 5th grade and went straight to middle school. It was in a poor area. Most kids did not work much there, they were rather fond of bullying other kids, such as the young Steve. One day he came home and declared that if he wasn’t transferred to another school, he would stop going to school altogether. He was 11. Paul and Clara complied, and the Jobses moved to the cozier city of Los Altos, so that Steve could go to Cupertino Junior High. This proved to be decisive for Steve’s future.

1960

Jobs family moves to Sillicon Valley

1976

April 1: Apple Computer Inc. is incorporated by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ron Wayne

1997

2011

July: Steve Jobs is named interim CEO of Apple

October 5: Steve dies

In 1974, Steve got a job at Atari.

He attended reed College but dropped out just before Christmas. However that allowed him to attend classes that he was not supposed to attend.

I think that Steve Jobs was very successful because his idea was original and very popular. Just about everyone has some type of Apple device. He made a lot of peole happy by making his dream come true. I believe that he will go down in history because he made a lasting impact on the world.
