Steven Paul Jobs was born to Joanne Schiebble(now known as Joanne Simpson) and Adbulfattah Jandali on February 24, 1955 in San Fransisco, California. Steve was adopted by the open hands of Clara and Paul Jobs. Paul Jobs, a mechanic and carpenter, taught Steve how to work with his hands. This inspired Steve, who then started to tinker with electronics. As he grew older, he later met a college dropout, Steve Wozniak, later to be his friend as well as his companion in Apple Inc. Afterwards, Steve went to Reed College, Oregon. Although the expenses were difficult for his family, Steve's parents spent all of their money to fund Steve's college. Steve dropped out after 6 months. In need for money, Jobs traveled to Atari, a consumer electronics and video game company creator in India. Around that time, Steve's friend Woz (Steve Wozniak), was hired by a company called Hewlett-Packard. Coming back to America, Jobs only returned to Atari a while later. At Atari, Jobs created circuits boards for the video game "Breakout". The company offered more money if Wozniak could minimize the chips, which he did. Returning to America, both Jobs and Wozniak knew they were both hooked to technology, and decided to start a business. In 1976, they both started "Apple Computers Company" Jobs' garage. They created the Apple I, and gave it away for free.
