Inside The Life Of Steve Jobs

My fascination with Steve Jobs started when I didn't even know who he was. It was the moment I held my first I Pod Touch. Steve Jobs was one of the pioneers on the most cutting edge of technology. 


Steve Jobs was born on Febuary 24, 1955. His father loved building machines. Three years after Steve was born, the Jobes adopted a girl named Patti. Steve loved his sister but they didn't have anything in common. Steve Job's family lived in Mountain View, California, it was a beautiful area

Middle Years

In 1979, Steve Jobs went to the research center of Xerox which is located in Palo Alto, California. He was walking and watching the engineers build new computers. What's that ? Steve Jobs asked one of the engineers pointing to a small machine by a computer. When the engineer moved the gadget by the computer an arrow on the computer screen moved too. The engineer said that the device is called a Point and Click Graphical User Interface the man told him. Everytime the man moved the pointer to a picture on the screen and clicked it, it opened a program on the screen. Steve was amazed. "When are you going to sell it?" Steve asked the engineer. "We're not" said the engineer. "It's fun but theres no market for it." Steve Jobs thought differently. Steve Jobs was going to improve the device and he was going to call it the Point and Click Graphical User Interface but he would call it by it's short name : the mouse.


Why did they pick the name Apple ?
Well, Steve Jobs ate alot of fruit and he like apples the best !!! 
He felt it was perfect just like he wanted his computers to be.

Adult Years

Steve Jobs along with his friend Steve Wozniak started Apple computers in his parents garage. 
He was also the vision and person behind Pixar. He quit Apple because he didn't like to be told what to do by the board of directors. He started NeXt, a company that sells computers for collages. NeXt wasn't doing so well. Then he bought a Graphical Group. He named it Pixar. Pixar and Disney made the first full length animated film..... Toy Story. Pixar was a success. Apple wasn't doing so well and was losing money. They asked Steve to come back. So Steve returned to Apple. Over the years he created iTunes, the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad. Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011. Steve Jobs last words were "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

My Perspective

Steve Jobs took peices of technology that is already out there and made them better.  He was a man who changed the way technology works. He changed my whole perspective about technology. Without Steve Jobs, the world would probably be using sticks and stones. That is how I look at it.
