STEVE JOBS' CAREER
Steve Jobs' college life was a bit unusual compared to how you might have imagined it. His biological mother wasn't a college graduate and decided to give Steve up for adoption. She wanted him to be in the hands of a college graduate with hopes that he might go to college when he was older. Eventually, he did go to college, but he found the classes uninteresting. He decided to drop out of Reed College after the first six months.
After dropping out, Jobs started designing the first mac computer. The iMac was released, and it didn't take long for Steve's career to take surprising turns. Today, we look back on Jobs' career, and we can see the ups and downs that led to one of the world's largest and most successful technology brands, Apple.
Jobs was criticised by many reporters including Andrew Ross (NYT) for not donating money to charity. Ross and others claimed that he hadn't donated enough of the fortune he had accumulated. However, friends of Jobs defended him by saying that he was busy changing the world with his technology. Criticism along these lines continued till Jobs' death.
June 12, 2005, Steve Jobs gave a speech to Stanford graduates. Towards the end of the speech, he shares a few words of wisdom that have changed his life: Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
And that’s what he did.
Today, Steve Jobs is known as someone who changed the world of technology. A visionary at heart, Steve's ideas were groundbreaking.
His accomplishments and success with Apple are recognized by many, but more importantly, we recognize his color-outside-the-lines personality. He is no longer living, but he is not dead. He is alive today, just as he will be for generations to come.
