Steve Jobs was one of the best American entrepreneurs. He is best recognized as the co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. Steven Paul Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, to two unmarried university students, Joanne Carole Schieble of Swiss Catholic descent and Syrian-born Abdulfattah “John” Jandali. Jandali, who was teaching in Wisconsin at what time Stev was born.
He gave Steve Jobs up for adoption because his girlfriend’s family objected to their relationship. The adopted boy had different pursuits before starting Apple Computers with Stephen Wozniak in Jobs’s family garage. Steve Jobs’s creation which includes the iPod, iPhone, and iPad, is now seen as the evolution of modern technology.
Steve Jobs Early Life:
Steven Paul Jobs was born on 24 February 1955, to Joanne Carole Schieble and Abdulfattah “John” Jandali, two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave their unnamed son up for adoption. His father, Abdulfattah Jandali, was a professor, and his mother, Joanne Schieble, worked as a speech therapist.
The baby was adopted by Paul Reinhold Jobs (1922–1993) and Clara Jobs (1924–1986). Schieble wanted Jobs to be adopted only by a college-graduate couple.
Schieble learned that the couple was not graduated but signed final adoption papers after they promised her that the child would extremely be encouraged and supported to attend college. Unknown to him, his biological parents would later marry in December 1955, born a second child, novelist Mona Simpson, in 1957, and divorced in 1962.
As a child, Steven was adopted by Clara, who worked as an accountant, and Paul, a Coast Guard veteran, and machinist. The family lived in Mountain View, they moved from San Francisco to Mountain View, California when Steve was five years old.
The parents afterward adopted a daughter, Patti. Paul was a machinist and taught his son how to work on electronics and rebuild electronics such as radios and televisions in the family garage. As a result, Steve became involved in and developed a hobby as a technological tinker.
Jobs’ youth was riddled with frustrations over formal schooling while he has always been an innovative thinker. Jobs tested so well in the School, however, that administrators wanted to skip him ahead to high school, but his parents declined this proposal. Jobs then attended Cupertino Junior High and Homestead High School in Cupertino, California.
After completing graduation in1972, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Reed was an expensive college that Paul and Clara could fail to afford. They were spending much of their reserves on their son’s higher education. Likewise, computer science entrepreneurs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg could not finish their studies..
Jobs dropped out of college after six months for want of money and spent the next 18 months dropping in on creative classes, with a course on calligraphy. He continued at Reed while sleeping on the floor in friends’ dorm rooms. He took weekly free meals at the local Hare Krishna temple.
Steve Jobs and Wozniak started Apple Computers when Jobs was only 21 years old. They primarily started in the Jobs family garage, and Jobs sold his Volkswagen bus and Wozniak sold his beloved scientific calculator for the development of this Company.
Jobs and Wozniak are credited for being revolutionary in the computer industry. They developed technology and made the machines smaller, cheaper, intuitive, accessible, and friendly to use for everyday consumers. Their first model, the Apple I, earned $774,000. After three years of the release of their second model, the Apple II, sales increased 700 percent to $139 million dollars.
