Steve JobsSteve co-founded Apple Computer in his garage with friend Steve Wozniak on April 1976,revolutionizing computing in the 1970s and ‘80s with the ‘Apple II’ and ‘Macintosh’, which, forthe first time, made it possible for average people to use computers at home. Steve’spersonality has pulled Apple through crises, periods of change, and even compelledemployees to work 90-hour weeks (joyfully) in order to meet seemingly impossibledeadlines. Following Apple II, Jobs was acclaimed as the ‘young prince of technology’ andattracted national media attention for his meteoric rise.However, by 1985, despite initial positive reviews, Jobs’ Macintosh was a commercial failure.Jobs was finally dismissed as the head of the Macintosh division. He was also fired fromApple when he adamantly refused to change the course he believed Apple needed to go.His dismissal from Apple prompted him to enter one of the most creative periods of his life,mastering the art of producing animated films.
