In the year 1970, Steve along with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Mike Markkula designed, developed and marketed one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers, the Apple II series. In the year 1985, Jobs left Apple and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher-education and business markets.

Steve Jobs has had a pro-found impact on the India’s developer community. Jobs and Wozniak put together their first computer called APPLE I. They marketed it in 1976 at a price of $666. In 1981, he introduced APPLE III, which had never fully recovered from its traumatic introduction. Jobs designed the Macintosh to compete with the PC and, in turn, make Apple’s new products a success. The Macintosh had 128 k of memory, twice that of PC and the memory could be expandable up to 192 k.
Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be a part of Apple.
