Steven Paul Jobs was born in

Simpson and Abdulfattah Jandali, had him adopted by a lower-middle-class couple
from south of the Bay Area, Paul and Clara Jobs. San Francisco, California
Young Steve grew up in a valley of apricot orchards that was already turning into the world center of computer technology:
Valley. It was not uncommon to see engineers fill their garages
with all kind of electronic devices in that part of . Steve Jobs was fascinated by
these, and that’s why, in 1969, he met with a computer whiz kid who shared his
interests in electronics: Stephen Wozniak — commonly known as Woz. Steve and
Woz quickly became friends even though Woz was five years older. California
When Steve Jobs reached college age, he decided he would go to
in . It
was an expensive liberal arts college, way too pricey for his modest parents;
but they had to keep their promise to Steve’s biological mother, and therefore
paid for the tuition. Steve only stayed at Reed for one semester though, after
which he dropped out. He then spent a lot of time learning about Eastern
mysticism and adopted strange diets, fasting or eating only fruits: it was his
hippie period. He even traveled to Oregon with a friend to seek
enlightenment at age 19. India
Even though the Mac project was controversial as it threatened both Apple II and Lisa, and because Steve Jobs antagonized it against the rest of the company, it soon became crucial to Apple’s future because Lisa proved yet another market failure. Steve was supported in his mission by John Sculley, Apple’s CEO, whom he hired in 1983 to help him run the company and groom him into a top executive. In January 1984, he introduced Macintosh in great fanfare.
