Let’s Talk about Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs along with his partner Steve Wozniak founded Apple Computer in the 1970s. Together they developed the first commercially successful personal computer, the Apple II in the late 1970s, and then went on to create the first user-friendly machine, the Macintosh in 1985. After being forced out of the company, Jobs returned to help the faltering company by rejuvenating its Macintosh line and by developing the wildly successful iPod multimedia device, and their first foray into the telecommunications business with the introduction of the iPhone.
