Steve Jobs

Steven Paul Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California. Steve was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, a lower-middle-class couple, who moved to the suburban city of Mountain View a couple of years later. Was an American information technology entrepreneur and inventor. He was the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer (CEO) of Apple Inc. On January 24 1984, after Apple had run a very memorable TV commercial for the Super Bowl (‘1984’), Steve Jobs introduced Macintosh at the company’s annual shareholders meeting. The product was launched in great fanfare and for the first few months, it was very successful. Steve aimed at the highest possible standards for his new NeXT machine: he wanted the best hardware, built in the world’s most automated factory, and running the most advanced software possible. For the first five years of Pixar, Steve Jobs set a goal for the company to sell high-end computer graphics workstations for institutions, such as hospitals or even the army. IPod made Steve Jobs realize that Apple could become the greatest consumer electronics company on the planet. Around 2003, he started a secret project to develop a tablet. But in 2004-2005, he realized that the technology that this group had developed, including a revolutionary touch-screen technology, could be used in a phone rather than a tablet. He made sure that Apple was ready to operate without him: in late 2008, he hired the dean of the Yale School of Management to create ‘Apple University’, a sort of internal business track to groom future Apple executives by exposing them to the Apple ways of doing business, through actual case studies in the history of the company.
