Steve Jobs was an American inventor and entrepreneur whose efforts over the last thirty five years quite simply changed the face of consumer electronics the world over.
As co-founder and CEO of Apple Computer, Jobs ushered in personal computing to the masses, which in turn led to new innovations which completely changed our way of life – from how we do our work, to the way we watch movies, listen to music and interact socially.
