He was given the job of creating the circuit board for the game Breakout, and $100 for each chip he could reduce. He gave the job to Wozniak, who created a design so tight, the assembly line couldnt do it, and reduced the design by 50 chips.

  3. 3. History 1976-1978 Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs form the Apple Computer Company on April Fool's Day on 1976 in GARAGE. Wozniak and Jobs finish work on a preassembled computer circuit board. It has no keyboard, case, sound or graphics. They call it the Apple I.The Apple I board is released for sale to hobbyists and electronics enthusiasts at the price of $666.66. Apple's first formal business plan sets a goal for sales to grow to $500 million in ten years. As it turns out, the company will pass that mark in half the time. Apple I computer boards are sold through 10 retail stores in the U.S. Apple moves from Jobs' garage to a building on Stevens Creek in Cupertino, California. The new Apple II is unveiled at the first West Coast Computer Fair. It is the first personal computer able to generate color graphics and includes a keyboard, power supply and attractive case . Regis McKenna Advertising launches its first ad campaign for Apple. Although advertising is initially aimed at electronics enthusiasts, Apple will soon become the first company to advertise personal computers in consumer magazines. Monthly orders reach a $1 million annual sales rate. STEVE JoB n WOZNIAK
  4. 4. Jobs has been giving inspiring presentations for decades. In 1984, Jobs unveiled the first Macintosh. The launch remains one of the most dramatic presentations in corporate history.
  5. 5. The idea fell from a tree, literally. Steve Jobs had returned from visiting a commune- like place in Oregon located in an apple orchard. Apple co-founder and Jobs pal, Steve Wozniak, picked him up from the airport. On the drive home, Jobs simply said, I came up with a name for our companyApple. Wozniak said they could have tried to come up with more technical sounding names but their vision was to make computers approachable. Apple fit perfectly. Present apple logo 1976 1977
  6. 6. Steve Jobs was the founder and inspiration for the Apple Company, but he was slowly pushed out for aggressive and underhanded tactics Employees said he had a temper, and was usually stubborn After an internal power struggle, he was eventually kicked off the board of directors Jobs protested and resigned, even though he stayed the chairmen for some time. He was so upset, he sold all but one of his Apple shares During this time, Jobs bought what became Pixar from Lucasfilm for $5 million He also started the computer company NeXT Computer Though it never went very mainstream, due to high costs, it was responsible for many important innovations, including NeXTMail, Jobs email program that supported embedded graphics and sounds and the original World Wide Web system(www)
  7. 7. Steve is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Lowest Paid Chief Executive Officer, with a salary of just $1. However, gifts like a $46 million jet and just under 30 million shares of restricted stock make him very well off to say the least Pixar, which Jobs bought in 1986, has been responsible for films such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo, the Walie and The Incredibles etc. Relations with Disney were getting tough, though, and Jobs announced that they would find a new partner in 2004. But, when Eisner was replaced by Bob Iger in 2005, he improved relations, and Disney bought Pixar for $7.4 billion. This made Steve Jobs the largest single shareholder of the Walt Disney Company, with 7% of the stock By this we can say that Steve JOBs is not only a Innovator..but he is also good ENTERPRENEUR. He all together started three companies which redefines the world thinking process and Revolutionised the IT industry as well as ANIMATION field.
  8. 8. Apple bought NeXT in 1996, bringing Jobs back to Apple When the CEO in 1997, Gil Amelio, was thrown out, Jobs took his place To show how profitable he could make Apple again, he released a number of new items like the Newton, Cyberdog, and OpenDoc. He invented the i-pod and world thinnest notebook MAC BOOK AIR.(now this is called CREATIVITY) The coming years brought many new products, including Mac OS X, the iMac, the iTunens,i-tv...
