Steve Jobs

Born: 1955-02-24 - Died: 2011-10-05
Cause of Death:
Respiratory arrest caused by a pancreatic tumor


Death Summary: Steve Jobs died at 3:00 p.m. on Oct. 5th of respiratory arrest caused by a pancreatic tumor.

Who was Steve Jobs : Jobs was born in San Francisco and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs of Mountain View, California, who named him Steven Paul. During his early years Jobs would often attend after-school lectures at Hewlett-Packard Company in Palo Alto, California and was later hired there. This is where he met Steve Wozniak, they were both summer employees.

Jobs attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but dropped out after only one semester. He continued going to classes, even though he wasn't technically a student. He is quoted as saying: "If I had never dropped in on that single calligraphy course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts."

In 1976, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, with later funding from a then-semi-retired Intel product-marketing manager and engineer A.C. "Mike" Markkula Jr., founded Apple. Some years later Jobs would be removed from the head of the Macintosh division. He would go on to form NeXT Computer. Much like the Apple Lisa, the NeXT workstation was quite advanced, but generally wrote off for it's cost.

In 1986 Jobs bought "The Graphics Group", today they're known as Pixar, from Lucasfilms for $10 million. After a couple of years of unprofitability selling the Pixar Image Computer, they were contracted to Disny to produce a number of computer-animated films.

In 1996 Apple announcd that it would buy NeXT for $429 million, which brought Jobs back to the company he had co-founded. Shortly after the acqusition, Jobs was CEO again.

    I think there’s a caveat to this: AT&T could be the winner if you live somewhere where you are lucky adequate to obtain bars. When at full power, AT&T was faster, on the other hand, living in major cities (Chicago & New York), I could in no way get reception. Once i was in the middle of nowhere (i.e. the California desert concerning LA & Las Vegas), AT&T was excellent. When traveling to cities, Verizon has always performed much better facet by side with AT&T. I guess there is certainly also the “are you in a very place by using a good deal of other iphone users?” If so, Verizon could be the way to go, IMO.
