He grew up experiencing different places and life altering changes that helped him find a purpose in life, and this was to revolutionize the world through technology.

Some people would consider him a god to the technology world because of everything he created.

An essay on the article “Steve Jobs: An Overrated Death - He Did Not Invent a Thing” by C.J. Thomson, 2011
Today, more than 55 million households are owners of at least one iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac computer (Brashares). Steve Jobs was an American technology entrepreneur and inventor. He was the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. and CEO and largest shareholder of Pixar Animation Studios (Freidman). He made a remarkable difference in technology and should be remembered as the man who shaped technology to was it has become today. To this day Apple is by far the biggest competition to all other computer and technology companies out there and many of these companies strive to be as popular and well known as Apple is. Steve Jobs revolutionized technology because he was the CEO of Apple Inc., reshaped the smart phone
In 1996, Apple was a struggling company that had lost more than 70% of its market capitalization in the past decade. Apple’s sales had fell dramatically and their new personal computers weren’t particularly popular with consumers. The return of Steve Jobs to the company was a turning point for Apple and initiated a new era for the firm. With the launch of innovative products such as the iPod, iPhone and iPad, Apple became the biggest brand in the world. Now it remained to be seen if Tim Cook would be able to continue to develop new products and maintain Apple’s success.
Steve Jobs was adopted shortly after being born. His adopted parents were named Paul and Clara Jobs. Steve was a pescetarian, meaning he ate no meat except for fish. He was an official college dropout, but continued his education by informally auditing classes. While unofficially attending classes, Jobs struggled to get by. He slept on his friends' dorm room floors, returned Coke bottles for money, and survived off free meals from the local Hare Krishna temple. He had a pretty low GPA--just 2.65. The Co. founder of Apple Company Steve Wozniak and Jobs met in high school Wozniak was 18 and jobs just 13. The apple company was officially created ion April 1, 1976.
The three most important factors in Apple's past success before the death of Steve Jobs was the push for innovation, portable devices, and iTunes. Steve Jobs was a man who wanted to create the "future" of technology. He created a better home computer with the creation of Apple II PC and the Macintosh computer. The Macintosh computer was created for the students and working professionals. Steve Jobs was the forefront of Apple's new innovations. He had the creative mind and the ability to look to the future. When Apple removed him as the CEO of Apple, he didn't give up. He went and started a new company. With that company he came up with the foundation of the new operating software of Mac OS X. We can all tell that Apple needed Steve Jobs when all other CEOs failed. Since the removal of Steve Jobs as CEO, Apple took a big hit in the market. With this, Steve Jobs decided to move toward the mobile devices of iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
In 1997, Steve Jobs returned to Apple as an advisory and with the purposes of reshaping the product line. The changes made by Jobs resulted in increased sales and $309 million in profits. Job changed the mindset of Apples management and development team. He encourage them to have the “think different” management style that promotes the development of products that are ahead of the technology and design curve, and a creative retail strategy. It is this strategy that would eventually make Apple the best-selling company in the PC industry.
Surely, there’s a reason to why Apple suddenly boomed to become a popular household name. Steve Jobs created distinct devices that no one had ever pictured. One of these products was the iPod. Before the iPod, the everyday person would pop in their favorite album into their CD player and groan an hour later because he or she would have to change out the CD that had already replayed twice. Likewise, there was always that other enticing option to carry around a clunky Walkman. Fact of the matter is, people had not realized how inconvenient their daily struggles with music were until the creation of the iPod. As the author of Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacson, described, "The iPod became the essence of everything Apple was destined to be: poetry connected to engineering, arts and creativity intersecting with technology, design that's bold and simple" (Isaacson 393). Suddenly, someone that had been previously changing out CDs and cassette tapes every half hour had every single song they could want at their fingertips. Not only that, but Jobs had also made sure that the iPod would have the simplest interface possible. This little, portable device that can hold all of your favorite songs had only five buttons and a track wheel. Furthermore, this music device that can seemingly work wonders could fit right inside the pocket of one’s
Without Jobs, Apple was falling apart. In 1996, Apple agrees to buy NeXT for more than $400 million. Apple didn’t buy just NeXT, but they also bought Steve Jobs back. Jobs became the chief executive and Apple’s a multi-billion dollar company thanks to products like the iMac and iPods. Jobs said, “Getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Blumenthal says, “ In an almost unbelievable way, the dots had connected again. Jobs had been thrown out of Apple, started a company that struggled, and then sold that company to Apple, his first love, where he was now in charge. Of course, none of it would have happened had he not been fired” (197).
Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in California in 1976. Their mission was to introduce an easy to use computer to market, which led to a computing revolution and quickly became the industry leader by selling more than 100,000 Apple IIs in 1980. After IBM entered PC market, IBM PCs, which used Microsoft’s DOS (OS), gained more market share and became the new standard for the PC industry. At the same time, Apple introduced the Macintosh in 1984. However, Apple’s net income fell 62% due to the Mac’s slow processor speed and lack of software limited sales. In 1985, Steve Jobs was forced out and John Sculley took charge of the Mac. Under the direction of Sculley, Apple
In 2007, Jobs invented the iPhone, a user friendly smart phone, which launched the smart phone market as we know it today. Until the emergences of other companies in the smart phone industry Apple monopolized the smart phone market. Although, other competitors are producing smart phones, Apple still continues to be successful when it comes to sales. For instance, Apple’s new iPhone 5S models sold more than 9 million units in their first weekend, and the company has earned praise for
It was through jobs that significant and highly marketable designs came into Apple like the original iMac of 1998. iPod launched Apple into a
