The PC revolution spurred by Steve Jobs ' vision of a "computer for the remainder of us" and made Apple an American company icon. But the vision of Jobs was clouded somewhere along the manner— some say by his ego— and he was expelled from the business he helped to find.
Few will disagree that Jobs actually hindered Apple's development, but the business lost its feeling of direction and pioneering spirit without it. After almost 10 years of plummeting sales, Apple turned to its visionary founder for assistance, and one of the most incredible turnarounds of the 20th century was created by a little older and wiser Jobs.
Early interest in electronics and gadgetry was shown by the adopted son of a Mountain View, Calif., machinist, Steve Jobs. While in high school, he boldly called for components for a school project from Hewlett-Packard co-founderand president William Hewlett.
Hewlett, impressed by Jobs, not only gave him the components, but also offered him a Hewlett-Packard summer internship. It was there that Jobs met and made friends with Steve Wozniak, a five-year-old young engineer with a tinkering penchant.
