'Steve Job's Remembered', Channi Maher
Last week, the world mourned the death of Steve Jobs, a great inventor and whimsical genius. He changed the face of personal computing with his co-creation and ownership of computer giant, Apple. Jobs died on October 5 at the age of 56 after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer.
Born in 1955, his interest in technology began with his adoptive father, who taught him rudimentary electronics. As a teenager, he attended lectures and worked during the summer at the Hewlett- Packard Company, where he met his future business partner Steve Wozniak. Despite being a gifted student, Jobs dropped out just a semester after starting university.

Jobs was not as technically gifted as Wozniak, but he had a strong marketing sense and was highly passionate; nothing in the market was as user friendly as what Jobs’ was envisioning. The first Apple computer, the Apple II was created in 1977 and despite being created in his parents’ garage, it was a huge success.
