Steve Jobs, the inventor of the Apple logo, is a celebrity that many people love to hate.
But the man who has changed the way people think about themselves and their jobs, his legacy is more than a brand.
As a teenager in the 1960s, Jobs was a tech nerd, playing video games on his Atari 2600.
He wanted to be a movie director and, by the time he graduated from college, he was an executive producer on the film “Spaceballs,” a satire of the space race.
“I had no idea what I was doing,” Jobs said in a 2014 interview with Vogue.
“I was just doing what I loved.”
That love was put to the test as he was selected as the voice of the voice-activated Siri robot, which would play the iconic song “I Am the Walrus” from the animated film “Finding Nemo.”
The robot was a success and Jobs, who died in 2012, went on to co-found the Apple Computer company with Steve Wozniak and Steve Warshaw in 1971.
He would later sell the company to Bill Gates and his son, Steve Jobs.
As the company expanded into other areas, he also began to get into fashion, starting with his iconic red sweater and the company’s iconic white shoes.
Jobs also became a fashion icon in the 1980s, when he introduced the red-and-black-striped “Hollywood Pant” and later wore the distinctive red sneakers and leather jacket he wore during the 1989 Apple II launch.
In 2009, he would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and, in 2010, he won a Grammy Award for his work in the movie “Cars.”
He died of pancreatic cancer in October 2013.
While some of his followers hate him, Jobs is remembered for many things, including his role as the co-founder of Apple and the creation of the iPhone.
He is also remembered for his love of movies, especially The Godfather, which he produced, directed and starred in.
On his last day as Apple CEO, he spoke to his employees for the last time in a video that was released through Apple’s YouTube channel.
In the video, Jobs talked about the Apple Store, saying he was proud to have helped bring the store to its current location.
“The Apple Store has always been an Apple product,” he said.
“It’s the best part of the company.”
“The store is a beautiful place.
The people are amazing.
I can’t even begin to describe the employees.
They are wonderful.
And they work hard,” he continued.
“And they are loyal.”
