Popularly known as the ‘Father of the Digital World’, Jobs was and still continues to remain one of the most inventive and energetic minds in American technology. The legendary visionary created a sensation across the globe with his personal computer revolution.Jobs wasn’t just a savvy businessman; he was a visionary who made it his mission to humanise personal computing, rewriting the rules of user experience design, hardware and software design.

His actions reverberated across industry lines: He shook up the music business, dragged the wireless carriers into the boxing ring, changed the way software and hardware are sold and forever altered the language of computer interfaces. Along the way, he built Apple up into one of the most valuable corporations in the world.
