His Simplicity

When was the last time you saw Steve Jobs in a suit? He might be one of the world's richest men but Jobs liked to keep it simple, even when addressing journalists from across the globe during big-ticket launches of the iPod or the iPhone. He almost never make public appearances in anything but black turtleneck sweaters and Levis 501 jeans. Just proves the age old adage about a book and its cover Photo: Getty Images

The world's first PC

Credit for creating the first computer still goes to Charles Babbage but the 19th century device was clunky, complicated and huge. It wasn't until 1983, that Steve Wozniak and Jobs gave the world the Apple Lisa, the very first personal computer that you could make place for in your home

The Apple Macintosh

After he launched the Apple Lisa, Jobs' attention shifted to the Macintosh project. We'd like to say that the rest is history, but Jobs left the company in 1985, following which the computers saw a period of growth and subsequent decline. After his return in 1997, Jobs revolutionized the Mac's image and today professionals swear by the computer's efficiency Photo: AP

IPhone

There are phones, and there are phones. And then there's the iPhone - a device that was as pretty as it was cutting-edge. The product redefined the smartphone market, and shook the competition out of its stupor - a fact that even the new Nokia CEO admitted in a letter to his employees Photo: Getty Images

His words of wisdom

Steve Job's commencement address at Stanford University, is the stuff that self-help books at the bookstores are made of. Only Steve spoke from the heart, choosing to share his experiences, instead of preaching from a pulpit. "Stay hungry. Stay foolish," he urged, little knowing that the speech would go to inspire millions more than just the students of the prestigious university Photo: Getty Images
