Joanne Schieble was twenty-three when she found out she was pregnant. Her father was very strict, and did not approve of the baby's father. His name was Abdulfattah "John" Jandali, a Muslim teaching assistant from Syria. They did not get married because Joanne's father threatened to disown her if she did, and abortion was not an open idea in a small Catholic community. So the baby was put up for adoption.
Paul and Clara jobs were eager to adopt a child for Clara could not have kids. But there was one problem, Joanne had set a guideline. The adoptive parents must be collage graduates. So when she found out they both were high school dropouts, Joanne wasn't to happy. But after weeks of arguing, they came to an agreement. Paul and Clara had to fund a savings account to pay for the boys collage education. Which they gladly accepted, nameing there new baby boy Steve Paul Jobs.
Steve was smarter than his parents, and they knew that to. They would go to great lengths to accommodate him, and he new that to. "Both my parents got me. They felt a lot of responsibility once they sensed i was special. They found ways to keep feeding me stuff and putting me in better schools. They were willing to differ my needs"
Steve was a trouble maker. His best friend Rick Ferrentio and himself got into a bit a trouble. They once made a poster announcing 'bring your pet to school day'. "It was crazy, with dogs chasing cats, and teachers besides themselves" Steve also went to the extent of setting off explosives off under his teachers chair. "We gave her a nervous twitch" recalled Jobs.
The Apple Orchard
Steve met a guy named Robert Friedland. Steve and Robert became friend almost immediately. Friendland was four years older than Jobs, but still an undergraduate. Frindland had a stewardship of a 220-acre apple farm that was owned by an eccentric millionaire uncle from Switzerland named Marcel Muller. Jobs took the job of pruning the Graven-stein apple trees. which is where he would later help the choice of his company name "apple".
The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 for $666.66. They sold over 200 units, but it was nothing compared to the SOL-20. which was better looking with a sleek mettle case, a keyboard, a power supply, and cables. Compared to the apple 1 was made of wood.
At Apple, know one payed any intention to the Macintosh at first. They all had there thoughts on the apple 2. Jobs thought differently. He new that the Macintosh would be the future of apple. And so it was, and even to this day the Mac is one of Apples main products.
In 1985 Steve Jobs got fired from his own company by John Sculley.
