How did he make his millions? He started Apple with Stephen Wozniak in his garage using the $1,300 raised from the sale of a Volkswagen minibus in 1976. By 1980, Apple had gone public and was capitalised at $1.2 billion.
In 1985, Jobs left Apple, bought Pixar from George Lucas and produced the blockbusters Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. He returned to a flagging Apple as CEO in 1997, breathing new life into the company with the launch of the iMac and iPod.
The secret of his success? A perpetual innovator with a real sense of style, whose utilitarian obsession with making technology accessible to the masses continues to fuel his success.
