Steve Jobs: Man On A Mission

Published

on



Millions of people around the world today are proud owners of Apple products, from smartphones to watches and laptops. The passion and creativity of one person has reached people in the corners of the globe, making Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, one of the most influential people in the tech industry. Some say the founder of Apple lost his footing on his way to success. But, few will disagree that Apple lost its sense of direction and pioneering spirit without Jobs on the front line. Engineering one of the most amazing turnarounds of the 20th century, Steve Jobs cemented his name in history as an icon of American business.

Every Apple fan knows the story of how the son of a machinist with an interest in electronics set out to build a computer for every household sparking the personal computer revolution. However, there are still a few facts that are not common knowledge!

Here are a few lesser known facts about the one of the most inspiring entrepreneurs, Steve Jobs.

1. Apple
Jobs decided to name his company Apple on his visit to an organic farm to collect fruits. He was a fruitarian and his diet consisted of only fruits and fish. 

2. Apple’s typography and font
After dropping out of college, Jobs continued his education by informally auditing classes. One of those courses was a calligraphy course, which was instrumental in the future Apple products’ attention to typography and font.

3. Annual Salary
Jobs’ annual salary at Apple was only $ 1 annually. However, he was a majority shareholder of Disney stock after selling Pixar and held close to 5.5 million shares of Apple stock. 

4. Packaging
An entire team at Apple was dedicated to study the experience of opening a box. Jobs insisted on achieving the excitement and emotional response level that is now common with all the Apple products.

5. Patents
Close to 346 United States patents have been listed with Steve Jobs named as either the inventor or co inventor. Apple’s famous glass staircase is one such patented attraction that pulls passersby into the store.

6. Mentor
Steve Jobs acted as a mentor to Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of the search engine giant Google. He even shared some of his advisers with the duo but was furious when Google went on to launch the Android operating system.

7. Pancreatic Cancer
When Jobs was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer, he waited for nine months before undergoing surgery. He instead opted for an alternative medicine regimen, including a vegan diet, acupuncture and herbal remedies, even consulting a psychic.

8. Bill Gates
Although they were rivals for a majority of the time, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs hit it off while doing an event together for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill Gates even wrote a letter to Jobs about how Jobs should feel great about what he had done and the company he had built. Jobs appreciated the letter and kept it by his bedside.

9. Last words
Till date, no one has been able to decipher Steve Jobs last words which were “Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow.” Jobs spoke these last words on his deathbed while gazing over his family’s shoulders before passing away on Oct 5 at the age of 56.

10. Steve Jobs: The Man With A Mission
One of Steve Jobs’ most famous quotes is “I want to put a ding in the universe.” I think it is safe to say Steve Jobs managed to put more than just a ding in the universe!

Watch Steve Jobs inspire graduates and entrepreneurs to dream big and achieve their dreams in this motivational video!
