STEVE JOBS | 1955-2011

Steve Jobs, 56, the innovative co-founder of Apple who transformed personal use of technology as well as entire industries with products such as the iPod, iPad, iPhone, Macintosh computer and the iTunes music store, has died.
The iconic American CEO, whose impact many have compared to auto magnate Henry Ford and Walt Disney — whom Mr. Jobs openly admired — abruptly stepped down from his position as CEO of Apple in August because of health concerns. He had been suffering from pancreatic cancer.
Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, a former Apple board member, called Mr. Jobs the best CEO of the past 50 years — perhaps 100 years.

Intense focus

A seminal business and technology leader, Mr. Jobs’ success flowed from a relentless focus on making products that were easy and intuitive for the average consumer to use.
His products were characterized by groundbreaking design and style that, along with their technological usefulness, made them objects of intense desire by consumers around the world.
He was known as a demanding, mercurial boss and an almost mystical figure in technology circles as well as American popular culture. Author and business consultant Jim Collins once called Jobs the “Beethoven of business.”
He was one of the figures who made Silicon Valley the capital of technological innovation and related venture capital fortunes.
His creation of iTunes as an online way to purchase music digitally helped transform the music industry and delivered a blow to the standard industry practice of packaging music in albums or CDs. With iTunes, consumers could buy individual songs for 99 cents.
The music industry didn’t welcome the change at first, but, after waging an intense battle against illegal music downloads, it came to rely on the business model iTunes created.
Mr. Jobs’ work at Apple and other projects made him a fortune estimated by Forbes magazine in 2011 at $8.3 billion. He was No. 110 on Forbes’ list of billionaires worldwide and No. 34 in the United States, as of the magazine’s March 2011 estimates.
Mr. Jobs was married to Laurene Powell Jobs, 47. He had four children, three with Powell Jobs. A fourth child, Lisa, had an early Apple computer — a predecessor to the Macintosh — named after her, though the family succeeded in keeping the children out of the spotlight and largely unknown to the public. He was Buddhist.

The beginning

Mr. Jobs dropped out of Reed College to build computers with high school friend Steve Wozniak, creating what became the Apple I computer in 1976.
With sales lagging by the 1980s, Mr. Jobs was ousted from the company’s leadership in a 1985 boardroom coup led by then-Apple CEO John Sculley.
He returned in 1996 after Apple bought his technology start-up, NeXT, for $400 million. Within months, Mr. Jobs took over as Apple CEO for the ousted Gil Amelio and led a major corporate turnaround.
Five years later, with the release of the iPod personal digital music player, Apple had leaped from computer maker to become the leading consumer electronics giant worldwide.
Millions of its computers and gadgets were produced in Asia and sold to U.S. and worldwide markets, making the company one of the most recognizable and beloved brand names ever.
He was known for creating a culture of secrecy at Apple that fueled intense media speculation about the company’s next product. Mr. Jobs himself introduced major products with flair at highly anticipated events that proved to be one of the company’s best marketing tools.
Though he brought simple, elegant technology to the masses, the reclusive Mr. Jobs was often uncomfortable around people and rarely spoke publicly. On rare occasions when he spoke with reporters, Mr. Jobs offered few or no personal insights.
Mr. Jobs was diagnosed with a form of pancreatic cancer in 2003. He informed Apple employees in 2004.
“No one wants to die,” he said in a commencement speech at Stanford University in 2005. “And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it.”
