The Life and Career of Steve Jobs

By now, everyone should know about the resignation of Steve Jobs as Apple’s CEO. The news wasn’t unexpected, but it was still a shock when it happened.

Right now, there are numerous articles and tributes about the life and career of Steve Jobs. However, I think this video by NMA World Edition of Taiwan topped them all. While it may not be historically accurate and some of the scenes may have been a bit exaggerated, I think it gives a pretty clear timeline on the life and career of Steve Jobs.

        1. allan stuart says:

          not at all, if we see it from a different angle, we know that this man is a superb technologist.. 🙂 so sad that he step down from Apple. he had done so much to Apple and he deserve more than he had now

    2. Hey John,

      The video is very silly. I can’t say I like it at all.

    His cancer might have come back and he most likely can not function with his daily duties. Who knows. So sad. I heard shortly after his announcement apple’s stock took a dive. Hopefully the future of apple won’t be affected too much. Some of us have iphones 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      The stock has already recovered and are trading at higher than before he announced his resignation.

      1. Patrick says:

        At 383, AAPL is still quite a bargain. This is especially true if you plan to hold on to it for 5+ years.

        1. John is die hard fan of Apple’s shares …

          He even compared Apple’s product and Apple’s share at below link –

      2. Stocksicity says:

        Yeah, it made a very quick recovery. I was watching the stock, but I knew it would bounce back up just as quick because it’s Apple.

        1. John bought the Apple’s shares when it was going down …

          Applying Zig Zag policy …

        I had read your post on April 25, 2010 about Apple stocks. You had bought them on an avg at $224 per share.
        I did some research today on the Stock exchange and got to know that the share price was $385 in the opening today!

        I must say you are having a profit of $161 per share.
        I am thinking how many you bought?
        You are doing a good money from the stocks too! Have you tried any of the stocks from Google?

    2. Amani says:

      Maybe affected a little bit a the early stage, but should be recovered in no time.

      1. Technary says:

        It will not only recover but will surely boost in the near future. The new CEO is dashing.

    3. I hope he will enjoy and have time with his family more now.

      1. Technary says:

        Yes but he has still work to do. He is still the chairman of Board of Directors in Apple Inc.

  3. aman says:

    His resignation news has made me so upset that iu can’t express , he’s the heart of Apple…

    1. This heart effected by the cancer and …

      Its nice to see that he decided to go down himself …

      1. Sad to see his health be that bad, he is so talented.

        1. Technary says:

          Cancer is very dangerous. Can be caught to rich or poor…But its so sad that my real tycoon is affected with it. Whenever we see any apple gadget i think of his talent for sure.

  4. Jorge Reis says:

    Silly video imho…

    1. Yes … it is weired creativity … I must say

      1. Technary says:

        May be…its different

  5. Lela says:

    I wonder if Apple is going to stay as progressive without him. Sometimes bad things happen when leadership roles change.

    1. Apple will steam on as usual, they have been prepared for this for years.

      1. They’ll continue on as before for a few more years, After that it’s anybody’s bet.

        1. Technary says:

          Yes they will continue to be as they are. Infact the new CEO of Apple has a great potential.

  6. Michael says:

    Wow thats a bit of a crazy video. The man is having a hard time in his life…. Not sure if people should be making fun of him with videos like this.

    1. Technary says:

      I too respect the legend a lot!

  7. The legend he is, what a career the man had!

    1. Yes he always ahead from the trouble …

      His life and his fight can be really inspirational to many people.

      1. Technary says:

        Its inspirational and teaches a lot! He had a very hard times in his career which he handled perfectly.

  8. Very sad to see Steve Jobs in this condition. He is pretty much the modern day Thomas Edison.

    1. I don’t think he can be compared to anybody. Comparison is always tempting though.

      1. Technary says:

        He is unique himself(in deeds) as he created a unique brand and its “APPLE”

  9. really embellished, but what he had is not bad.

    1. Technary says:

      He crafted his career with perfection.

  10. Andy says:

    Very sad for him , yet what else he can do

    1. Technary says:

      He still has work to do. He is still the Chairman of Board of Directors of “Apple Inc”. He still has powers and control over his own firm.

  11. fas says:

    What hogwash did they make?

  12. Lalit says:

    I hope Apple will come back strongly even without him.

    1. What do you mean by come back ?

      1. MykeTech says:

        I think he meant to say stay ‘I hope Apple will stay strong without him.’

        1. Technary says:

          Apple has already been strong after this decision and got the stocks shooting up.

  13. I saw recent pictures of Steve yesterday. It’s quite obvious that he’s sick again because he looks worse than before. I wouldn’t wish pancreatic cancer on my worst enemy.

    1. Yeah, i even watched some pics which you mention, posted on top apple blogs, but few say that they might not be the real pics.. as you can see him in very bad condition.

      1. Technary says:

        May god bless him with good health!

  14. Steve Jobs is a living prof that hard work pays off. He is one of the smartest guys to be beat.

    1. Technary says:

      He is the Technology Tycoon! 😀

  15. Blogger Erik says:

    Steve Jobs is one of the greatest technological minds of our era. I fervently hope that he will beat the cancer that is ravaging his pancreas and body.

    1. MykeTech says:

      Yeah me too. I’m glad he’s not leaving the company for good though, and Cook isn’t a bad choice as the new CEO.

      1. Technary says:

        Let hope for his good health!
        Yes Cook is a very good CEO. He has been COO of Apple Inc for years. Steve Jobs has a lot of faith and potential in him.

  16. Technary says:

    He is a real businessman with a great skill in technology. I appreciate and proud to see a great man in my lifetime to progress overwhelmingly good.

    1. Lalit says:

      I agree with you Technary and I hope Cook will take the Apple to new heights.
