Steve Jobs Life Infographic

Steve Jobs Life and Career (Infographic)

This evening, Steve Jobs lost his battle with cancer. Apple posted a statement:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

It is also my sad duty to complete the infographic I put together 2 months ago. It is a full rundown of Job’s life and career at Apple.

A high-def PDF of this infographic is available upon request.
