This contest is fueled by the following news: Steven Paul Jobs (February 24, 1955 October 5, 2011), known as Steve Jobs, was and American business magnet and inventor. He is a co-founder, Chairman of the Board of Directors and former CEO of Apple Inc. Steve Jobs also served as CEO of Pixar Animation Studios; in 2006, The Walt Disney Company bought Pixar and Steve Jobs became a member of the Board of Directors of Disney. In 1995, he was listed as executive producer in the animation film "Toy Story". In the late 1970s, Steve Jobs co-founded Apple along with Steve Wozniak, Mike Markkula and others. He designed, developed and released for sale one of the first commercially successful series of personal computers the Apple II. In the early 1980s, Steve Jobs was among the first, who visualized the commercial potential of a mouse-controlled graphic user interface, that led to the creation of the Macintosh. After losing a power struggle with the Board of Directors in 1984, Steve Jobs resigned from Apple and founded NeXT a company, dealing in the development of computer platforms for universities and business establishments. In 1996, Apple bought NeXT, and Jobs returned to the company, which he co-founded and went on to be its CEO from 1997 to 2011. In 1986, he acquired the computer graphics division "Lucasfilm", which was identified as Pixar Animation Studios. He remained its CEO and major shareholder (with 50.1%) prior to its acquisition by The Walt Disney Company in 2006. Steve Jobs became the largest private shareholder of Disney (with 7%) and a member of the Board of Directors of Disney. The story of Steve Jobs' business activity has contributed greatly to the symbolic image of a unique individualistic entrepreneur of Silicon Valley, emphasizing the importance of design and understanding the key role of aesthetics in the public consciousness. His efforts to promote the development of products, which were functional and elegant at the same time, has earned him many followers. On August 24, 2011, Steve Jobs announced his retirement from the post as the CEO of Apple Inc. In his resignation letter, he strongly recommended the appointment of Tim Cook as his successor. At his request, Steve Jobs was appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors of Apple Inc. Early Years: Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco (State California) and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs (nee Hagopian) of Mountain View (California), who gave him the name Steven Paul. Paul and Clara later adopted a girl, who was named Patti. The biological parents of Jobs - Abdulfattah Jandali (a Syrian graduate student, who later became a professor of political science) and Joanne Simpson (nee Schieble), an American graduate student, who later became a speech language pathologist) - later married and gave birth and raised the biological sister of Steve Jobs - novelist Mona Simpson. Steve Jobs studied in Cupertino High School and Homestead High School in Cupertino (California). After school hours, he attended lectures at the Hewlett-Packard Company in Palo Alto (California). Soon, he was hired by the Hewlett-Packard Company and he started working with Steve Wozniak as a summer employee. In 1972, Jobs completed high school and took admission in Reed College in Portland (Oregon). He left the college after the first semester, but continued to attend some classes, for instance, calligraphy. During that period, Steve Jobs slept on the floor in a friend's rooms and lived on the money, given for collecting coke bottles and once a week, he came for a free lunch in the local Hare Krishna temple. Later, Jobs said: "If I had never dropped that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts". In the autumn of 1974, Steve Jobs came back to California and started attending meetings of the Homebrew Computer Club along with Wozniak. Steve Jobs joined as a technician at Atari a manufacturer of computer games, to earn money for spiritual solitude in India. Later on, Steve Jobs went to India so as to visit Neem Karoli Baba in his ashram along with Daniel Kottke, a friend from Reed College (and later, the first employee of Apple), in search of spiritual enlightenment. He returned as a Buddhist with a shaved head and in traditional Indian attire. During this period, Jobs experimented with psychedelics, describing his experience with LSD as "one of the two or three most important things that he had done in his life". Steve Jobs said that, the people around him, who do not share his counter-cultural roots, could not completely relate to his thinking. Jobs joined back in Atari and was asked to create a printed circuit board for the Breakout game. According to the founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell, Atari offered 100 dollars for each chip, which can be removed from the machine. As Steve Jobs was not aware of the PCB design, he made an agreement with Wozniak to share the bonus equally if Wozniak helped in minimizing the number of chips. Much to the surprise of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50. The design was so compact, that it was impossible to reproduce it on assembly line. Then, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari gave them only 700 dollars (in reality, 5000 dollars were given to Jobs) and gave 350 dollars as Wozniak's share.
