Techopedia explains Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, along with Steve Wozniak, created Apple to serve the hobby market of computer enthusiasts with their Apple I and II models. The success of these products helped spur the creation of the personal computing market. Throughout much of his later career, Jobs and Apple were viewed as a foil to Bill Gates and Microsoft. The image of Apple as a company that designed slick devices for the savvy consumer was one that Jobs worked tirelessly to maintain. Jobs’ final tenure as Apple’s CEO saw the company release multiple products that dominated their markets and drove Apple’s stock price so high that it was jockeying with Exxon for the title of the world’s largest publicly traded company.
