Learn About Steve Jobs: Co-Founder of Apple Computers

Steve Jobs is best remembered as the co-founder of Apple Computers, the makers of well-designed, well-coordinated and good-looking personal home computers. It was Jobs who teamed up with inventor Steve Wozniak to invent one of the first ready-made PCs.

Besides his legacy with Apple, Jobs was also a smart businessman who became a multimillionaire before the age of 30. In 1984, he founded NeXT computers.

In 1986, he bought the computer graphics division of Lucasfilm Ltd. and started Pixar Animation Studios.

 

EARLY LIFE

Jobs was born on February 24, 1955, in Los Altos California. During his high school years, Jobs worked summers at Hewlett-Packard and it was there that he first met and became partners with Steve Wozniak.

As an undergraduate, he studied physics, literature, and poetry at Reed College in Oregon. Jobs formally only attended only one semester at Reed College. However, he remained at Reed crashing on friend’s sofas and auditing courses that included a calligraphy class, which he attributes as being the reason Apple computers had such elegant typefaces.

ATARI

After leaving Oregon in 1974 to return to California, Jobs started working for Atari, an early pioneer in the manufacturing of personal computers. Jobs’ close personal friend Wozniak was also working for Atari as the future founders of Apple teamed up to design games for Atari computers.

 HACKING

Jobs and Wozniak also proved their chops as hackers by designing a telephone blue box. A blue box was an electronic device that simulated a telephone operator’s dialing console and provided the user with free phone calls. Jobs spent plenty of time at Wozniak’s Homebrew Computer Club, a haven for computer geeks and a source of invaluable information about the field of personal computers.
