Steve Jobs was a man on a mission to change the world. He was on a mission to prove himself and the ones that doubted him in life. He was a child who was given up at adoption, raised by Paul Jobs and Clara Jobs (Hagopian) in Mountain View, CA, and who suffered through multiple illnesses in his life. Steve Jobs might be one of the only entrepreneurs to be fired from the company that he created, but he proved his worth later on down the line after he was hired back by Apple. Steve Jobs also helped a majority of large companies transform their own industries, like Pixar Studios and the explosion of the animation industry. Steve Jobs was even a majority holder of Disney, one of the largest companies in the world.
Steve Jobs can be compared to the likes of Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and event Ghandi. He was a man that changed the world and took people down a new path in life. Before Jobs' influence in this world, people took notes with pen and paper, were limited to high costs of CD albums, and used mobile phones that were only good for talking. He transformed the world to where it is today. Today, people have the world in the palm of their hands. With a few clicks, they can find the answer to anything they want and get in touch with whoever they want. He simplified everything and gave us the resources to have a library of over 1,000 songs.
Generation Z (born in the Internet age) can thank Steve Jobs for giving them limitless access to the worlds information. People nowadays listen to thousands of songs using their iPods, roam the world with their iPhones, use their iPads for limitless things, and do their work with their iMac's or Macbook's. Yes, Steve didn't create the Internet, but he simplified it so everyone in the world can be capable of using it and accessing all the information they have. His physical resemblance is that of Gandhi's and his motivation resembles that of a perfectionist who did not accept anything besides the best.
Do I have the latest iPhone, iPad and Mac? Yes, you can call me a Mac enthusiast. I am able to download the latest music to all of my devices, sync my information to everything I have, run my business on the go, get news and stay up to date with the world as long as I am within reception, and share my life with those I want instantly. We can all thank Steve Jobs for being able to do this. It doesn't matter if you have an iPhone or any other type of mobile phone, the point is, Steve Jobs was the man who pushed the technological wheel to spin towards where we are today in regards to the computers we use and the mobile devices we carry.
