Steve Jobs or jobs of steve

The whole world is watching as Steve Jobs' Apple launches perhaps its most-anticipated product ever, the iPhone, Friday.Personally, I can't imagine an Apple without Jobs, or indeed a Jobs without Apple But very few know him well from start to bottom.

Steve Wozniak was a maths genius, one of the best among the best during his university years. Steve Jobs has no knowledge in building a computers. He is a visionary, someone that sees the future and lead a team of engineer to build that dream.
Another misconception that bothered him was the idea that he and Steve Jobs had designed the Apple I and the Apple II together. The sole designer of both those computers was Steve Wozniak. - Valleymag
JOBS from orphan to Apple
  • Steven Paul, was an orphan adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California in February 1955.
  • After school, Jobs attended lectures at the Hewlett-Packard electronics firm in Palo Alto.
  • In 1972 Jobs graduated from high school and register at Reed College in Portland.
  • Early in 1974 Jobs took a job as a video game designer at Atari, Inc., a pioneer in electronic arcade recreation.
  • Jobs was not interested in creating electronics and was nowhere near as good an engineer as Woz.
  • He had his eye on marketability of electronic products.
  • He persuaded Wozniak to work with him toward building a personal compute.
  • Wozniak and Jobs designed the Apple I computer in Jobs's bedroom and they built the prototype in the Jobs' garage. Jobs showed the machine to a local electronics equipment retailer, who ordered twenty-five.
  • Jobs received marketing advice from a friend, who was a retired CEO from Intel.
  • Jobs and Wozniak had great inspiration in starting a computer company that would produce and sell computers. To start this company they sold their most valuable possessions. Jobs sold his Volkswagen micro-bus and Wozniak sold his Hewlett-Packard scientific calculator, which raised $1,300 to start their new company.
  • With that capital base and credit begged from local electronics suppliers, they set up their first production line. Jobs encouraged Wozniak quit his job at Hewlett-Packard to become the vice president in charge of research and development of the new enterprise.
  • Jobs and Wozniak put together their first computer, called the Apple I. They marketed it in 1976 at a price of $666.
