Steve Jobs was the co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc., and he is credited with helping the company become the leader in the world of technology and gadgets. Under Jobs’ leadership, Apple went from a small and mostly specialized computer company to one nearly ubiquitous in American society. Jobs was important outside of Apple, helping to spin out the computer graphics division of George Lucas’s company Lucasfilm. The company, known as Pixar, went on to create the first fully computer-animated movie, Toy Story. Jobs was pivotal in the development of a number of popular products, including the iPad, iPhone, and the App Store. Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003 and died of complications of the disease in 2011.
