Steven Pual Jobs the American businessman was born 25th feb 1955 in San Francisco America was the cofounder of Apple Inc computer company that provided a runway to the future of technology . He died on 5 Oct 2011 in Palo Alto California, America. He was one who actually provided a base for modern technology. Because of his engineering skills he provided a revolutionary start to the world that we know.
Founding of Apple Company.
As Jobs was brought up by the adoptive parents was growing up with his own thought process and engineering skills. But as long as he passed his school and got admission to the college soon after he was dropped out of the college because his teacher thought that jobs have no interest nor the enough mind to be in the college anymore. Somehow he got a local job as a video game designer and saved all the money to travel India to experience Buddhism. After visiting India he came back to the silicon valley and met his high school friend who was then working for the Hewlett Packard (Hp) company. When his friend talked about the progress of his own designed computer then Jobs suggested that they should get into their own business . and that was the changing moment in Stev’s life. Then they both worked in and designed a computer soon after they started a company and the apple computer that we know now came into. Apple I they called their first logic board( a computer).One of the first businesspeople to realize that the personal computer might appeal to a wide audience, at least if it did not seem like it belonged at a junior high school science fair, was Jobs. Featuring Jobs’ support, Wozniak created the Apple II, an enhanced variant with a keyboard. They also arranged to have a stylish, molded plastic shell made to protect the device.
Hardships in Establishment of Apple Inc.
Jobs managed to get funding, distribution, and attention for the business, Apple Computer, which was formed in 1977—the same year that the Apple II was finished—despite having long, unruly hair and shunning work attire. The device was an instant hit and came to represent the explosion in personal computers. The firm had a record-breaking public stock offering in 1981, and in 1983 it entered the Fortune 500 list of America’s top corporations the fastest (at the time). To be its chief executive officer (CEO) and, indirectly, Jobs’s mentor in the finer parts of managing a huge organization, the company hired John Sculley, president of PepsiCo, Inc., in 1983. . Sculley had been persuaded by Jobs to take the job by posing the question, “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life?” The line was deftly delivered, but it also exposed Jobs’s own almost messianic faith in the coming of the computer age.
The Great Achievement.
In the same period of time in 1979 when he was progressing in the most important project of his life and for the company. He took a group of his engineers to Xerox Corporation, a technology company in Palo alto, to learn how the graphic interphase works. After this experience he took all the ideas along with their own unique ideas to try to make something new for the people that did not make so much progress but they tried and eventually the Apple Inc came into existence as we know it now.
The Crises and the re-establishing of Apple Inc.
Gilbert Amelio, a semiconductor executive, was appointed as Apple’s new CEO in late 1996, when the company was suffering from severe financial losses and on the verge of bankruptcy. Amelio picked NEXTSTEP, purchasing Jobs’s firm for more than $400 million—and bringing Jobs back to Apple as a consultant—when he found that the company had failed to build an adequate successor for the aging operating system (OS) of the Macintosh. Amelio’s failure to improve the company’s finances, however, quickly infuriated Apple’s board of directors, who in June 1997 asked the company’s wayward cofounder to take the helm once more.
Jobs began reimagining Apple for the twenty-first century in 2001. In that year, Apple released iTunes, a software application that allows users to play music and convert it to the small MP3 digital format, which is widely used in computers and other digital devices. Later that year, Apple started selling the iPod, a little MP3 player that immediately dominated its market. In 2003, Apple started offering MP3 downloads of popular music from major record labels online. Through Apple’s online iTunes Store, more than one billion music and videos have been sold by the year 2006. With the release of the touch-screen iPhone, a cell phone with the ability to play MP3s and films and access the Internet, Jobs led the firm into the telecommunications industry in 2007. Later that year, Apple unveiled the iPod Touch, a compact MP3 and gaming gadget with an iPhone-like touch screen and built-in Wi-Fi. The iTunes Store’s ability to offer both Apple and third-party software helped the iPhone and iPod Touch quickly surpass previous portable gaming systems in terms of game selection. And after that they brought one of the best smartphones ever to this world that is the major runway for the future of technology.
