Interviews with Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who passed away on October 5, 2011, due to complications relating to pancreatic cancer at the age of 56. These interviews cover every phase of Jobs' career, dating back to 1978. In particular, one of Jobs' last thorough interviews - with Walt Mossberg from June of 2010 - is featured heavily.
Jobs founded Apple in the late 1970s, along with Steve Wozniak, and marketed one of the very first commercially successful personal computers for the home, the Apple IIc. Jobs resigned from Apple in 1985 to found the NeXT computing platform specifically for businesses and higher-education. Around this time, he also purchased the computer graphics division of Lucasfilm Ltd, which eventually became the massively successful Pixar animation studio.
When Apple purchased NeXT in 1996, Jobs came back into the company and served as CEO until his retirement in June of 2011.Check out the best Steve Jobs Keynote moments as well.
