Steven Paul Jobs was an American inventor, designer and entrepreneur who was the co-founder, chief executive and chairman of Apple.
Born in 1955 to two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave him up for adoption, Jobs was smart but directionless, dropping out of college and experimenting with different pursuits before co-founding Apple in 1976. Jobs left the company in 1985, launching Pixar Animation Studios, in the process revolutionising another industry with Toy Story. Jobs returned to Apple more than a decade later releasing a sling of products that are now a part of our day to day lives. The Iphone, Ipod & Ipad. Jobs died in 2011 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
