Entrepreneur. Born Steven Paul Jobs on February 24, 1955, to Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah "John" Jandali, two University of Wisconsin graduate students who gave their unnamed son up for adoption. His father Abdulfattah Jandali was a Syrian political science professor and his mother Joanne Simpson worked as a speech therapist.

Shortly after Steve was placed for adoption, his biological parents married and had another child, Mona Simpson. It was not until Jobs was 27 that he was able to uncover information on his biological parents.young steve jobs steve jobs health steve jobs apple steve jobs iphone steve jobs liver.

As an infant, Steven was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs and named Steven Paul Jobs. Clara worked as an accountant and Paul was a Coast Guard veteran and machinist. The family lived in Mountain View within California's Silicone Valley. As a boy, Jobs and his father would work on electronics in the family garage. Paul would show his son how to take apart and reconstruct electronics, a hobby which instilled confidence, tenacity, and mechanical prowess in young Jobs.

While Jobs has always been an intelligent and innovative thinker, his youth was riddled with frustrations over formal schooling. In elementary school he was a prankster whose fourth grade teacher needed to bribe him to study. Jobs tested so well, however, that administrators wanted to skip him ahead to high school—a proposal his parents declined.

After he did enroll in high school, Jobs spent his free time at Hewlett-Packard. It was there that he befriended computer club guru Steve Wozniak. Wozniak was a brilliant computer engineer, and the two developed great respect for one another.

After high school, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Lacking direction, he dropped out of college after six months and spent the next 18 months dropping in on creative classes. Jobs later recounted how one course in calligraphy developed his love of typography.

In 1974, Jobs took a position as a video game designer with Atari. Several months later he left Atari to find spiritual enlightenment in India, traveling the continent and experimenting with psychedelic drugs. In 1976, when Jobs was just 21, he and Wozniak started Apple Computers. The duo started in the Jobs family garage, and funded their entrepreneurial venture after Jobs sold his Volkswagen bus and Wozniak sold his beloved scientific calculator.

Jobs and Wozniak are credited with revolutionizing the computer industry by democratizing the technology and making the machines smaller, cheaper, intuitive, and accessible to everyday consumers. The two conceived a series of user-friendly personal computers that they initially marketed for $666.66 each. Their first model, the Apple I, earned them $774,000.

Three years after the release of their second model, the Apple II, sales increased 700 percent to $139 million dollars. In 1980, Apple Computer became a publically traded company with a market value of $1.2 billion on the very first day of trading. Jobs looked to marketing expert John Scully of Pepsi-Cola to help fill the role of Apple's President.

WWDC 2011 kicks off tomorrow, Monday June 6, and while for developers it’s the beginning of a week packed full of coding, knocking heads with Apple’s engineers, and generally sharing in the iOS/OS X bonhomie, for everyone else it’s another Steve Jobs keynote and the promise of some significant platform news. SlashGear will be liveblogging the opening WWDC keynote tomorrow morning, kicking off 10am PST, where Jobs is expected to cover iOS 5.0, Mac OS X Lion, and the debut of iCloud.

In an unusual departure from previous years, Apple has already confirmed the big three topics on the agenda. We already know that the company’s interpretation of next generation of desktop and mobile software will be revealed, with iOS 5.0 likely bringing new a notification system and rising to the recent challenges of Android, as OS X Lion attempts to span both the functionality power users demand with some of the slick streamlining of the wildly popular iOS.

Meanwhile, iCloud is set to ratchet up the challenge presented to Amazon and Google’s cloud music systems, with big label deals in place and a straightforward scanning system that cuts out some of the setup headaches both alternatives include. They might have got to market first, but Apple is seemingly betting its cloud scanning system will push it ahead on ease of use.

So, three big topics to cover, but there’s still speculation that Steve Jobs will have “one more thing” to shake things up in the morning. That could be a Sandy Bridge update to the MacBook Air, an intelligent iCloud upgrade to the AirPort, or something else entirely – or, is revealing the running order an attempt to stabilize expectations, with the next-gen iPhone now not tipped until later in the year?

We’ll know for sure tomorrow, so join SlashGear for the full liveblog at 10am PST (1pm EST; 6pm BST) when we’ll have all the details! Bookmark http://live.slashgear.com and stand by for all the news as it happens…
