Things you didnt know about steve jobs
The company he started in his garage gets sued on average once a day
. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple in his garage shortly after Wozniak came out with the Apple 1 computer. From those humble beginnings Apple has grown into one of the largest companies in the world with $350 million in market value. At that size its no surprise that it would face litigation, but once a day? They keep their lawyers busy.
Largest single stakeholder in Disney
. He was the largest individual shareholder in Disney with 7% stake in the company after Pixar was bought out. He also held a spot on the Board of Directors. The next largest shareholder is its former CEO Michael Eisner coming in at 1.7%.
Has Over 300 Patents
. The New York Times recently revealed that Steve has 313 patents to his name. To give you some perspective, out of his peers Bill Gates holds about 9 and the Google boys have roughly a dozen between them. They werent all tech related, however, as he even had one for a glass staircase.
Denied paternity on his first child
. Prior to marrying Laurene, Steve had a child with ChrisAnne Brennan named Lisa. This was right around the time that Apple was taking off so he ended up denying paternity. Eventually, though, he changed his mind and at the end of the day he paid Lisas way to Harvard. The ultimate makeup present.
Found his sister at 30
. Steve wasnt the only famous one in his family. His sister, a writer, is fairly popular as well. They didnt meet each other, however, until 1985. After their initial meeting they became really close friends and according to Mona talked at least once every other day up until his passing earlier this year.
Lied to Steve Wozniak
. After working on the famous Atari gameBreakoutthey unofficially agreed to split their cut in half. Steve, being a cunning businessman, had other plans. Although Apple gave Steve $5,000 for their work he told Wozniak that he had only received $700. Wozniak later found out about it and said he would have given him the money had Steve told him that he needed it.
Produced Toy Story
. As a result of his partnership with Disney, Steve lit the spark that led to movies like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, and WALLE. For almost 15 years he dominated the animation industry but Toy Story was a more personal endeavor as he was Executive Producer.
. Animation in Hollywood seemed to be a dying art until Steve came along and acquired The Graphics Group from LucasFilms for $10 million and turned it into the Pixar we know and love today. Its a good thing he did too, because without it he would never have
. No meat for Steve. At least not if its from a land dwelling mammal. As you may have deduced by now, his flower child persona never really died. In fact, his diet actually ended up affecting his relationship with companies like Mcdonalds in the boardroom, especially when he cast his vote against advertising Pixar movies via happy meals. Speaking of which, Steve
Offered an HP internship in 8th grade
. This is where all of you jealous types can start to get jealous. When Steve was a kid he would attend local lectures put on by HewlettPackard. After one of the lectures he approached William Hewlett because he needed some computer parts for a project. Evidently Will was so impressed by Steve he gave him the parts and then offered him an internship on the spot.
Used to be homeless
. It seems almost unthinkable but before Steve Jobs was conquering the world with his iPods he was out on the street telling people iBroke. Luckily for him he had some good friends so after dropping out of college they let him do some couch surfing.
Legal Dispute with Apple Corp
. This court case didnt die easily. For years Steve and Apple Inc went up against the Beatles and Apple Corp over the issue of their trademarks.Were still not sure whether meeting one of your favorite bands in court is really cool or sort of bummer. At least if you cant get a signature you can maybe keep one of the signed legal documents.
Loved the Beatles
. Its hard for people who didnt grow up in it to understand, but Beatlemania was probably something similar to Biebermania multiplied by five. To give you an idea of the profound effect the Beatles had on young Steve Jobs he actually named the company he is now famous for after their record label, which landed him in a
Had a fling with Joan Boaz
. According to a friend from Reed College Steve had a brief fling with the folk singer back in his hippie prime. Unfortunately though, she left him for his favorite musician
Was a hippie
. For a guy that went to India and came back a Buddhist its really not that much of a stretch. As Jeff Goodell once said about Steve back when met him at Apple, I had no idea that this guy would turn out to be one of the greatest visionaries of our time. To me, he just seemed like a lost hippie kid. Of course, his hippie roots led to several other things including the time he
Took a $1 salary
. I know what youre thinking. He didnt give to charity so he must have hoarded it all. Not Steve. Since 1998 he has received 1 dollar every year from Apple.
Didnt give to charity
. Or so they say. As Apples CEO he cut back on all of their philanthropic programs saying they would wait until [they] are profitable. Although they never restarted their programs Steve never actually made his views on charity clear and it is certainly indisputable that he made an impact on the world.
Laurene Powell Jobs
. Steve liked to keep his private life private which might explain why he was married to Laurene in Yosemite national park. She was an MBA graduate of Stanford and was appointed by President Obama to be a member of the White House Council for Community Solutions due to her active involvement in the nonprofit community. This is actually quite strange considering that Steve
Became a Buddhist
. Well, sort of. While on his journey through the Indian Subcontinent he was influenced heavily by the religion even to the point of having his marriage presided over byKobun Chino, a Buddhist monk. And now seems like a good time to introduce his wife
Went to India to find spiritual enlightenment
. In the summer of 1974 he traveled to India with his roommate to visit Neem Karoli Baba, a Hindu guru. Upon arrival though, they discovered that the guru had past away earlier that year. Steve ended up traveling the country for seven months, after which he returned to the States with a shaved head and traditional Indian clothes.
. Steve actually later described this as one or two or three of the most important things he had done in his life and believed that unless someone understood his countercultural roots they wouldnt understand his way of thinking.
. His biological mother wasJoanne Carole Schieble, an American. His father, however, objected to the marriage so Steve was put up for adoption. His adoptive parents were Clara and Paul Jobs
. His biological fathers name is Abdulfattah Jandali. He is currently a restaurant and casino owner in Reno, Nevada. The two of them allegedly only met once in life by accident primarily because he
. Yes, one of the greatest minds of our time studied how to put fancy words on a page. But dont question Steve. As he himself pointed out, 10 years later he used those skills to make what he described as the first computer with beautiful typography.
Dropped out of college
. After graduating from Homestead High School in Cupertino, California he went on to study at Reed College. He only took one semester of classes before dropping out. For the next 18 months, however, he continued to audit classes that interested him. It was during this time that he
