Gavin and Wyatt join Steve Jobs at his Apple Garage Band hideout.
Steve Jobs (Feb 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American businessman and inventor who played a important role in the achievement of Apple computers and the development of revolutionary new technology such as the iPod, iPad and MacBook.
Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco, 1955, to two university students Joanne Schieble and Syrian-born John Jandali. They were both unmarried at the time, and Steven was given up for adoption.
In 1974, Jobs travelled with Daniel Kottke to India in search of spiritual enlightenment. They travelled to the Ashram of Neem Karoli Baba in Kainchi. During his several months in India, he became aware of Buddhist and Eastern spiritual philosophy. At this time, he also experimented with psychedelic drugs; he later commented that these counter-culture experiences were instrumental in giving him a wider perspective on life and business
In 1976, Wozniak conceived the first Apple I computer. Jobs, Wozniak and Ronald Wayne then set up Apple computers. In the very beginning, Apple computers were sold from Jobs parents’ garage. Despite the many innovative achievements of Jobs at Apple, there was increased friction between Jobs and other workers at Apple. Jobs resigned in 1985.
Much more successful was Job’s venture into Pixar – a computer graphic film production company. Disney contracted Pixar to create films such as Toy Story
Jobs upon his return in 1996 launched Apple in a new direction. With a certain degree of callousness, some projects were summarily ended. Instead, Jobs endorsed the development of a new wave of products which focused on accessibility, appealing design and innovate features.
Under Jobs, Apple managed to overtake Microsoft regarding share capitalization. Apple also gained a pre-eminent reputation for the development and introduction of innovative technology.
Despite, growing ill-health, Jobs continued working at Apple until August 2011, when he resigned.
