Who was his father Steve Jobs?
Steven Paul ‘Steve’ Jobs was born in Palo Alto, on 24 February 1955 – his zodiac sign was Pisces, and he held American nationality. He remains remembered as a co-founder of Apple, while he was also the chairman and CEO of the company. Steve was also the majority owner of Pixar, and after it was acquired by The Walt Disney Company, he sat on its board of directors.
Steve was adopted by Paul Reinhold Jobs and his wife Clara (nee Hagopian) not long after he was born; his biological parents were Abdulfattah Jandali (Syrian) and Joanne Carole Schieble (American). He grew up alongside his adoptive sister Patricia in Mountain View, California, to where the family moved when Steve was four years old.
Because his father was a mechanic and had a large workbench in his garage, Steve fell in love with mechanics at a very early age, but eventually turned to electronics, and preferred to learn about this rather than about the things taught at school.
He skipped 5th grade, and enrolled at Crittenden Middle School, however, because he was bullied there, Steve told his parents that he would drop out if they didn’t transfer him; Paul and Clara thus sold their house, and bought a new one in Los Altos, California, while Steve began attending Homestead High School, where he met his future business partner and friend Steve Wozniak. Upon matriculating in 1972, Steve enrolled at Reed College, but dropped out after a single semester, without letting his parents know, even though they were paying for his tuition.
He found a job at Atari, Inc. and in 1975 was offered $100 for every Transistor-transistor logic (TTL) chip that he was able to remove from their arcade video game “Breakout”; Steve knew little about doing this, but he made a deal with his friend Wozniak to do it, promising to split the money even. Atari payed Steve $5,000, but he told Wozniak that they had paid him $700, and he thus gave him $350.
It was Wozniak who completed the design for the Apple I computer in March 1976, but Steve convinced him to sell it; they then founded the Apple Computer Company, and sold 200 Apple I computers for $500 each. Their new computer, Apple II was revealed at the 1977 West Coast Computer Faire, and it went on to become the first successful microcomputer in the world.
Steve had a net worth of just a bit over $1 million when he was 23 years old, and his wealth turned to $250 million in the following two years. He introduced the Macintosh computer in 1984, but because of its poor sales, Steve left Apple in 1985.
He went on to found the company NeXT Inc., and introduced his computer NeXT on 12 October 1988; the company became so successful that it was acquired by Apple Inc. in 1997, and Steve thus returned to working at Apple as interim chief executive. He became permanent CEO in 2000, and turned the company into one of most successful in the world, with his products iPhone, iMac and iPod.
He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October 2003, but was able to beat it, however, the cancer returned, and Steve passed away on 5 October 2011.
