Steve Jobs Biography

After graduating from high school, Jobs attended Reed College in Orego. But he soon found that his classes were very boring and soon dropped out, taking a job with video game maker Atari. He soon found a guy named Steve Wozniak and they were interested in computers and saw a big future in them. By 1976, the two started their own company name Apple and called their first computer the Apple.

After the development of the Apple computer, Steve Jobs could tell that this was going to be a great product. He sold the idea to some investors convincing them to invest in the company. The Apple II was a great success. The company quickly grew and went public just four years after it started in 1980. But later the PC debuted and was much cheaper than the Apple and made their sales decline. Jobs was blamed for this and resigned from Apple in 1985.

In 1997, Apple ended up purchasing NeXT from Jobs. He then returned to the company as the CEO. Apple was struggling at the time and needed some new ideas. With Jobs at the helm, Apple began to branch out into new products. They introduced the iPod music player and iTunes music software. Both were a huge success and gave Apple a new image of being on the cutting edge of consumer electronics. In 2007, Apple introduced the iPhone which changed the way phones were used and took the mobile phone market by storm. Jobs became a celebrity and was considered by many to be one of the great innovators of the 2000s.

Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011 from pancreatic cancer. He had fought cancer for several years since first being diagnosed in 2003. He died a good man and a good father. He was known as one of the most successful peroople to have ever lived and will always be remembered even as his products continue to become more and more popular.
