- Biography of Steve Jobs
Steven Paul Jobs was born on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California. He was put up for adaption by his unwed biological parents, Joanne Schieble and Abdulfattah Jandali and was adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, a lower-middle-class couple. They moved to Suburban city a couple years ago. The Santa Clara county, south of the Bay Area, became known as Silicon Valley in the early 1950s after the developing of a myriad of semi-conductor companies. Steve Jobs grew up with engineers working on electronics and other gizmos in their garages on weekends. This shaped his interest in the electronics as he grew up. At the age of 13, he met one of the most important persons in his life: 18 years old, Stephen Wozniak, an electronics wiz kid and like Steve, an hopeless prankster. After five years, when Steve Jobs is already a college, he told his parents that he wants to enroll in Reed College; an expensive liberal arts college in Oregon. Even though the tuition fees were very expensive for the couple, they had promised to Steve’s biological parents that he would get a college education, so they comply. Steve spent only one semester at Reed, then dropped out, as he was more interested in eastern philosophy, fruitarian diets, and LSD than in the classes he took. He moved to a hippie discuss in Oregon where his main activity was cultivating apples. A few months later, Steve returned to California to look for a job. He was hired by the young video game maker Atari, and used his income to have a trip to India with one of his college friends, in order to 'seek enlightenment'. He came back with a little disappointment and started to take interest in his friend Woz's new activities.
