Who was Steve Jobs? is a children�s book written by Pamela Pollock and Meg Belviso, which aims at educating the younger generation about the life and times of Steve Jobs. This book also features lovely illustrations by John O�Brien, which provides a better understanding of the events in the story.
Steve Jobs died on October 5, 2011 at the age of fifty-six. But he packed more life in those fifty-six years than most people do in several lifetimes. He changes the way the world perceived computer technology. After being born on February 24, 1955, Steve was put up for adoption by his biological parents. He was then adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, who took him home and helped him evolve into the man he�d later become. At their home in California, Paul taught Steve the basics of electronics in the garage, thereby encouraging the need in his son to start �tinkering� at a young age.
Little did his parents know that this enthusiastic child would grow up to change the face of digital technology. In his youth, Steve Jobs worked in collaboration with Steve Wozniak to create the first desktop computer in his garage. They then cashed in on the idea and became legends almost immediately. Over the course of his life, Jobs found Apple Incorporated, and gradually pioneered smarter computers, followed by mobile phones and tablets. Today, iPhone, iPad, iPod and Macintosh have become household names all over the world. Often referred to as the Father of Digital Revolution, today Steve Jobs has achieved cult status of a futurist and a visionary. His legend lives on in the form of Apple Incorporated and its high-end services.
