Steve Jobs Biography – Movie

Steve Jobs is, and will ever be, one of the greatest entrepreneurs of all time. His complex personality with overwhelming passion, dedication, and will has not only generated billions of dollars but also changed the world.

He was a technological entrepreneur, visionary, and innovator who changed the world by pioneering the personal computer revolution of the 1970s and 80s. Not only did he create some of the most groundbreaking products of all time, such as the Apple Macintosh, but he also helped create an entirely new industry that has made technology more accessible to everyone.

Jobs was born in San Francisco in 1955 and grew up in Silicon Valley. Despite experiencing a difficult upbringing, Jobs studied computer programming at Reed College in Oregon and then moved back to Silicon Valley where he founded Apple with Steve Wozniak in 1976. By utilizing his talent for engineering and marketing, Jobs helped Apple to become one of the leading computer companies on the market.

It wasn’t just computers that Jobs was known for either; during his time at the helm of Apple, he also created some iconic products like the iPod, iPhone, and iPad which have changed how people use technology on a daily basis. He also popularized graphical user interfaces for computer programs which have since become the industry standard for user interfaces ever since.

As Apple CEO from 1997 until his death from cancer in 2011, Jobs spearheaded several initiatives that are still widely used today. These include iCloud storage solutions, iTunes music downloads, and App Store technologies which now dominate how people buy and use digital content today.

From humble beginnings to one of the most influential people in Silicon Valley, Steve Jobs had a life-long impact on both the technology world as well as society as a whole. His unprecedented success both at Apple and elsewhere is an inspiration for entrepreneurs around the world who strive to create something unique like Jobs did so many years ago.

Because business was not only about money, it was a way of life for him. As the co-founder of Apple Computers – Steve Wozniak says:

If you can build links and sell them, you can have a company. And the way you make money and its importance in the world is with companies. This is how you get good things for people. It wasn’t about the money…

I really like this quote and use it as motivation for my activities. This is also a radical statement, a capitalistic society is based on money, the so-called capital. It is what drives the world. But according to Steve Jobs money is not important. Although he lived and grew up in the most capitalistic country in the world, he was not a capitalist, he was from another race – a creator, an entrepreneur.

OK, enough said, I just wanted to drop some notes about the following movie… It’s about how Steve Jobs started, the early history of Apple, and its founders. How the first computer – Apple 1 –  was developed. About the story of two young hippies, who started one of the most powerful companies on Earth from a small garage in Palo Alto, California.

OK, here is the movie. Regrettably, it’s only 45 minutes in length, but it’s worth every minute. Enjoy!
