Steven Jobs

A biography on Steven Jobs.

Early Life of Steve Jobs

Steven was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs of mountain view, California and a bit later in life he met up with his biological parents. In school, Steve was not interested in many of the subjects they had and he then found his love for technology.

Getting involved

"After graduating from Santa Clara's Homestead High School in 1972, Jobs went to Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but left after a year and a half. He went to work for Atari as a video game designer and saved enough money to pay for a trip to India in the summer of 1974."

"If today were my last day, would i want to do what i am about to do today?"-Steven Jobs

CREATOR OF APPLE

Aftermath of what he did

The Apple II was introduced in 1977 and, after more work, became the standard for computers. Several factors contributed to its success. The Apple allowed the addition of items like a modem (a device that converts computer signals to a form that is compatible with the telephone) and a music synthesizer (a computerized electronic device that produces music).

Legacy

After leaving the computer design industry, Steve Jobs set a new standard for the making and quality of computers. He also left a place in many people's hearts by the encouraging words he said.
