Steve Jobs was born on February 24, 1955. He was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs, who named him Steve Paul Jobs. He grew up in Mountain View, California. When his region was becoming a center for electronics people started to refer to the area as Silicon Valley because silicon is a substance used in manufacturing several electronic parts.

He had a rough time in elementary school, even his fourth grade teacher needed to bribe him to study. Nevertheless, he was very intelligent. His school administrators were suggesting to skip him ahead to high school when his parents refused. When he got to high school he liked to hang out at Hewlett-Packard.

When he was working there he met Steve Wozniak, a computer genious who was trying to build a small computer. This idea caught Jobs mind and suggested to Wozniak they should start a compay. Jobs was selling his Volkswagen bus when Wozniak sold his scientific calculator to obtain money to fund Apple.

Computers. In that moment Steve Jobs was only 21 years old. At a time when almost all computers were functioning as mainframes, he offered people the first personal computer. While mainframes could fill a room and were very expensive, Apple offered personal computers. The company had some troubles after the introduction of the Macintosh, a model that did not sell very well. He was running the company as the CEO when he resigned in 1985. He started a software company called NeXT Inc. He was running this company when he bought an animation company from George Lucas (which later became Pixar Animation Studios). They produced Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Later, Apple bought NeXT Inc. and Jobs returned to his post as Apples CEO in 1996.

With this, a new era of exciting and innovate products began. Apple launched products that revolutionized the world, like the Macbook Air, iPod and iPhone.

In 2003 Jobs discovered he had pancreatic cancer. He had a successful surgery and remained healthy for some years. He passed away on October 5, 2011, the next dat the introduction of the iPhone 4S, the last Apple event he witnessed.

It was really frightful! Then somebody knoked at the city gate, and the old king went out to open it. A princess was standing outside, but heavens, how she looked from the rain and the bad weather! Water poured off her hair and clothes and ran in at the toe of her shoe and out the heel, but she said she was a true princess.

Well, well soon find out! thought the queen, but she didnt say anything. She went into the bedroom, took off all the bedding, and put a pea on the bottom of the bed.

The second part of the movie explained the reasons of these events. The bald man and the woman were husband and wife and they were smugging some alcohol because in those times it was forbidden to sell it and you could get a lot of money if you sold it illegally.
