People Who Changed the World Week #1
As of today our team decided to write about people who changed the world, so we could show our respect to them and share their knowledge with our readers. And so we decided to start off with one of the people that changed the world completely and that’s Steve Jobs.
Steve job left us 2 years ago as he died from cancer :(.. But his inventions will live on forever. Steve Job was American entrepreneur and inventor, he was the Co-Founder of Apple and CEO of the company for many years, he also Co-Founded Pixar. He is considered as one of the most charismatic pioneers of the personal computer revolution. Though all of us know his future, not so many know his past.. Actually Steve Jobs was a college dropout, strange right? But that’s true he dropped out of college, and I don’t know if you have watched the new movie JOBS with Ashton Kutcher, but in the movie he takes LSD and that is true as well, Steve Jobs was really taking LSD in his college years.
So How did Steve Jobs Change the World?
He made PCs before they were PCs.
The first Mac computers were known as PCs, because they were computers designed to be used by individuals in their homes, something that wasn’t really possible before. — And the one PCs that managed to do that was Apple II and actually that was the first widely successful PC. Today’s computers may be classified as PC or Mac, but they all evolved from the original PC prototype and that is why we have to thank Steve Jobs for that.
He made computers simple.
Actually not only computers but phones as well, like the “smartphones” before iPhone were complete crap so hard to use and so many keys. But Steve Jobs always liked his products to be simple, to be easy to use and that’s the reason why iPhone has 1 button. Mac Computers became successful because Steve Jobs began to win people over to his vision of a computer that was powerful but also intuitive, easy to use and highly functional. Users began to abandon PCs for Macs in droves as they realized that Macs froze less, glitched less, crashed less and were easier to navigate besides.

He made advertising innovative.
In a famous commercial that ran during the Super Bowl, which costed Steve Jobs a lot of money and was really a risky move: an athlete runs into a room straight out of a dystopian novel and throws a hammer at a projector screen full of propaganda, and then the screen reads – On January 24, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you’ll see why 1984 won’t be like ‘1984.’ Steve Jobs was known for putting a lot of resources and money in his ads, and that’s why Apple always had the best ads.
He turned technology into art.
Like I can’t even find a room to compare the design between Apple’s products and other companies products.. And believe me or not I actually do not own an Apple Product :).. Like Apple’s might be a bit behind when it comes to functions, but that doesn’t matter at all, what matters is the simplicity and the design. Before Steve Jobs showed up, no one had thought to combine so many things– computers, music players, phones — into the same company.

And as we end It was his passion for perfection that made Apple the company as we know it today, from a company inside a garage to a multi billion dollar company..
Steve Jobs was known for being a bit harsh on people, but there is no doubt that his inventions changed the world… The Macintosh, The iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, the iMac all of them had something unique that was ahead of their time.. And while people who don’t like Apple Products might not like this, it’s true!
