The Man Steve Jobs

                            You know we here in America, we want to be rich, we want to be famous. Some strive, work really hard at it, would do anything for it. Some even eat breathe and sleep it. Now all of the rumor’s going around about Steve Jobs, the main man behind Apple. Rumor has it, he’s dying of cancer and has 6 weeks to live. Of course, we here in the media will stop for nothing for a story. Some people in the media should really be ashamed. Cancer is a very devastating disease. I know first hand, I lost my Mom last summer to it. Can’t people respect this man’s privacy and the privacy of his family to just leave him alone? If it’s true, Mr. Jobs, will let us know if he wants to.

                             Some of the story about Apple, the world’s biggest tech company. Where did it all start? How did it all start? Let’s have a little look shall we? Steve Jobs is an American business magnate and inventor. He is the co founder and chief executive officer of Apple. In the 1970’s Jobs, cofounder Steve Wozniak and others designed, developed and marketed one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computer’s, the Apple II. In the 80’s they went on to develop the MacIntosh. After losing a power struggle with the board of director’s, he left Apple in 1984 and then formed the company NeXT. Apple bought out NeXT in 1996, Jobs came back on board to be the CEO of the company he helped co found and has held the title since.

                            Much like Apple of it’s time, NeXT was very advanced in the computer technology world. Once it was purchased by Apple, a lot of their technologies found their way into Apple products, which led to the MAC OS X. Then in 2001 he brought us the Ipod. We all love our iPODs! There is so much more to Steve Jobs than Apple. He purchased the animation branch of Lucas films ( Star Wars), which became Pixar. Jobs held onto it, until he sold it to Disney. He is still one of their biggest stockholder’s. It’s going to be sad to lose a great American icon inventor. If he and his family want their privacy, leave them alone. Go on get out there and enjoy your day!
