Steve Jobs was truly an extraordinary person. He invented so many things that people could not live without today, such as the Macintosh, iPhone, and iPod, and has changed the world with his genius. Jobs revolutionized the smartphone industry, the animation industry, and everyday computers. He had his fair share of problems in life, and definitely deserved his position in Apple.
