Jobs, with Stephen Wozniac, co-founded Apple Computers, after developing their first machine in a garage. Jobs' company was also the brains behind the first computer-animated film Toy Story.

He was orphaned as a baby and adopted.

He showed remarkable electronics aptitude early in life and attended lectures at Hewlett-Packard, where he also had a summer job and met Wozniac. He went to Reed College in Portland, Oregon (class of 1976), but dropped out after one term, although he continued to attend classes for a year, also experimenting with drugs and eastern religions.
