A few years later, in 1972, Jobs and Wozniak enrolled to Reed college, Portland, Oregon, where Jobs only attended classes that he really enjoyed. In 1974, they both started to work for Atari; as a video game designer. Then, Jobs started to create computers in his free time.

A few years later, in 1976, he started to make computers, with the help of Wozniak. Then, fifty Apple 1 computers were sold followed in 1977, Apple 2 computers went out on sale. Apple then became a multimillion dollar company. However Macintosh then went on sale and a couple of months later, they became poor. A few years later, in 1985, Jobs quit as CEO of Apple and bought the animation company called PIXAR.

Between 1986-1993, Jobs attempted to make and sell neXT computers failed while Jobs and PIXAR fought to stay open. In 1994, Toy Story opens and was a big hit. Microsoft was doing well, but in that time, Apple was failing. In 1997-1998, Apple buys neXT and Steve Jobs is boss and Powermac and Powerbook go on sale. Apple then takes over all the markets.

His early jobs were working on barcode technology, writing typesetting software, writing a generic macro language, working on FASTBUS system software and designing a heterogeneous remote procedure call system.

Later, in 1980 he wrote, but never produced, his first programme called “Enquire,” which later foreshadowed his later work on WWW. In 1989, he proposed a global hypertext project AKA the World Wide Web. From then a lot of people started to buy the computers and Tim soon became successful in engineering and business. He said,” It is about getting excited about connections, rather than nervous.” It inspired people to work on the internet to find out more.
