Apple "My neighbor, Steve Jobs, has been in the news lately. The talk of the town is the recent announcement he will be stepping aside to let other seeds grow at Apple. The business press, the general press, the blogosphere, and just about everybody else has waxed poetic about the 'greatest CEO of all time' saying that this 'boy wonder' has shaped the very nature of our lives with his genius. It's all true, but here in Palo Alto, Steve Jobs isn't just an icon, he's also the guy who lives down the street." I like stories that put a human being behind a public figure. As much as I dislike Apple's recent policies, Jobs is still just a regular person, like all of us. It's easy to forget that when you're sitting behind a glass desk 4000 kilometres away.

How did Steve Jobs managed to become successful despite dropping out of college?
Where did Jobs go to college; when did he dropout? Do you believe that sometimes you don't need a college degree to succeed in life? What is the true definition of "success (you can talk about yourself here)?" Bill Gates is kind of like Steve Jobs too; is it creativity?
As a tech support, i love to follow Steve Jobs footsteps to become successful.
