'You've got to find what you love,' Steve Jobs

Technology has been the buzz word for a long time and is going to remain forever. Apple has been at the core of break-through technological developments and Steve Jobs has taken the company to unimaginable heights.

Steve has a very aggressive and demanding personality. He has been an audacious explorer of new technologies. He started from scratch and created an empire. He has been a trend setter for the industry and has been foreseeing the future. He has brought in the GUI on our desktops, the different fonts, and many others technologies. Apple's recent marvelous innovations under his leadership are imac, ipod and iphone. Apple's products are cool and technologically more advanced than any of their competitors'.

In 1983, Steve Jobs brought in John Sculley who was working at Pepsi-Cola at that time, to become Apple's CEO. The famous question put forward by Jobs to Sculley was "Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water to children, or do you want a chance to change the world?". And Sculley replied by joining Apple. Sculley has initiated and accomplished several ad campaigns which helped in increasing Pepsi's market share in a small span of time.

Steve Jobs was listed as Fortune Magazine's Most Powerful Businessman of 2007.

Steve also established Pixar Animation Studios. It has created eight of the most successful and immensely popular animated films of all time: Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars and Ratatouille. Pixar Studios has won 20 Academy Awards and its films have grossed more than $4 billion at the worldwide box office to date. Pixar merged with The Walt Disney Company in 2006 and Steve now serves on Disney's board of directors.

He is a great leader who makes you aspire for unimaginable heights and also shows you the way to accomplish them. I would like to wrap up with the following words which had appeared on the back page of the final issue of The Whole Earth Catalog decades ago,
Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
