Mr. Steve Jobs was born in Feb 1955 out of wedlock. He was put up for adoption. After being chosen, he moved with his new family to Mountain View, California.
Worked for Atari as an engineer for seven months - primarily during the night. His coworkers disliked doing shifts with Steve because he didn't wear shoes, had long hair, and never showered. He was very dirty.
Co-funds Apple Computer with Steve Wozniak and sells their first kit, Apple I. (1977) Apple incorporates, and sells the very first personal computer with color graphics, Apple II, which is Apple's first successful personal computer.
John Sculley takes over Apple as CEO after the board meeting to discuss his management votes him out of Apple. Soon after, he starts NeXT Computers, which is ultimately far less successful than Apple.
Steve graduated high school and enrolled in Reed college in Oregon, and then dropped out after one semester. He sat in during classes and subjects that interested him, despite not getting credit for them.
In 1986, Jobs bought what would become Pixar Animation Studios for $10 million. In 1988, NeXT releases its first computer. Six years later in 1993, NeXT discontinues its hardware to start producing software instead. The company is renamed to NeXT Software, Inc.
Jobs becomes Pixar's CEO. Later in the year, Jobs brings Pixar public, a week after the release of Toy Story. The new movie earned $192 million in box office. Its success opens a new window for celebrities lending their voices to animated characters.
After Apple buys NeXT Software in 1997, Jobs returns to Apple as an adviser, and later, as CEO. He announces a $150 million investment from Microsoft, and bringing Safari into Apple software. In 1998, Apple becomes profitable again.
