Steve Jobs (1955—2011), an American businessman, one of the founders of Apple Inc. Company, is also known as Father of the Digital Revolution.
He was born in San Francisco to two university students who were unmarried then and couldn’t support their baby. The boy was adopted2 at birth by Paul Reinhold Jobs and Clara Jobs who became loving and caring parents for Steve. Paul taught him some elementary electronics and how to work with his hands. Clara taught Steve to read before he went to school.
Though Steve often found school boring, he was known as a gifted student. While in high school1, he met some people who shared his interests in electronics. One of them was Stephen Wozniak. In 1976 Jobs and Wozniak formed their own business. They named it “Apple Computer Company” in remembrance of a happy summer Jobs had spent picking apples. Everyone agrees that it was Steve’s character and intellect that helped to make the company what it was. He was certainly the heart and soul2 of the company and its public face.
Steve was responsible for designing new products, marketing and finding the best possible people for the company. Under his leadership the company had the greatest success in business history and developed such world-famous products as iMac, iTunes, iPod, iPhone, iPad and many others.
Steve Jobs was a perfectionist. Nothing was ever “good enough” for him — it had to be perfect. It seemed that he worked 24 hours a day. This devotion to work and great interest in it helped him to become a real winner and achieve great results working together with his team.
Steve loved songs by Bob Dylan and was a great fan of The Beatles. This is what he once said about them, “They were four guys who... balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.” He said that from that point of view The Beatles were a model for him.
