Steven Paul Jobs (born February 24, 1955) is currently the CEO of Apple Computer and is a leading figure in both the computer and entertainment industries. He co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in 1976. Jobs helped popularize the concept of the home computer with the Apple II, and was one of the first to see the commercial potential of the GUI and mouse. He oversaw the integration of these technologies into the Apple Macintosh. He has also led Apple Computer through its recent resurgence.

Jobs has also been, since its inception, the Chairman and CEO of Pixar Animation Studios, an independent film production company that has produced acclaimed animated shorts and features such as The Incredibles and Toy Story, and which was recently acquired by The Walt Disney Company for $7.4 billion in stock. The transaction has made Jobs Disney's largest individual shareholder and has given him a seat on Disney's board of directors.

Quotes by Steven Jobs (b.1955)

Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.


Almost everything all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Fascinating man. Fascinating life. Pretty much defines what vision should look like in a VIP. I like that he was out there.. networking.. and through that discoverd a left brained genius inventor named Steve Wozniak. Jobs put on his VIP vision spectacles and saw things through to a successful conclusion :).

Today Apple isn't just a computer company anymore.. oh no.. in keeping with Jobs original vision for this technology.. they are transitioning into a consumer company finding ways to apply technology to improve people's life (for a handsome *ching* *ching* profit of course).

Good job Jobs. Good job Steve.. both of you.
