Steve Jobs Quotes...

Steven Paul Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011) was an American business magnate and investor who co-founded Apple Inc. with Steve Wozniak. Jobs is widely recognized as a pioneer of the personal computer era and played a key role in making Apple Inc. one of the most valuable brands worldwide.

Jobs and Wozniak co-founded Apple in 1976, in the garage of Jobs’ parents, and started selling Wozniak’s Apple-I personal computer. Together they got huge success and wealth, just a year later with the launch of Apple-II. The company sold about 2 million units of Apple-II worldwide which is one of the first highly successful mass-produced personal computers.

Unfortunately, Jobs was forced out of his own company after a long power struggle with the company’s board and CEO in 1985. After that Jobs started new companies NeXT and Pixar. 12 years later, in 1997, Apple bought NeXT and he returned as the head of the company. It is because of Jobs’ long term vision and strong leadership quality that Apple successfully launched many innovative products like iPod, iPhone, iMac, and the iPad. Soon after the launches of new products Apple became a symbol of quality and class. Today Apple is one of the highest valued companies in the world.

Steve Jobs was diagnosed with a pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor in 2003. Following a short recovery, Jobs returned to running Apple and spent his following years of life in fighting against the disease. He died on October 5, 2011, at the age of 56. Jobs was one in a million kind of personality and will always be remembered as a true revolutionary leader.
