Steven Paul Jobs (born February 24, 1955) is currently the CEO of Apple Computer and is a leading figure in both the computer and entertainment industries.
He co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne in 1976. Jobs helped popularize the concept of the home computer with the Apple II, and was one of the first to see the commercial potential of the GUI and mouse. He oversaw the integration of these technologies into the Apple Macintosh. He has also led Apple Computer through its recent resurgence.
Jobs has also been, since its inception, the Chairman and CEO of Pixar Animation Studios, an independent film production company that has produced acclaimed animated shorts and features such as The Incredibles and Toy Story, and which was recently acquired by The Walt Disney Company for $7.4 billion in stock. The transaction has made Jobs Disney's largest individual shareholder and has given him a seat on Disney's board of directors.
