There have been many different people in the world today who have contributed to the buildup of technology. Steve Jobs was one of the most world-wide known of these people. Steve Jobs affected the world by bringing a whole new idea of technology into our everyday life.
Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California to two parents that graduated from University of Wisconsin. These parents later on gave up their son for adoption without even giving him a name. He was twenty-seven when he found and discovered his biological parents. He was adopted as an infant by Clara and Paul Jobs who named him Steven Paul Jobs since his biological parents hadn’t given him a name. When he was young he lived in Mountain View in Silicon Valley, California. At a young age he was introduced to electronics while working with his dad.

One of Jobs main achievements was being able to introduce the company of Apple to the world. In order for him to do that he had to somehow create a computer. He did this with his partner Steve Wozniak. Wozniak was more advanced in technology than what Jobs was, so he had a few advantages.
