Jobs founded Apple Computer with fellow gadget nut Steve Wozniak (together above and below), the technical brains behind Apple. They became known as The Two Steves, but it was Jobs who was to become Steve, while his pal was just Woz.

Apple started with the homebrew Apple I but changed the computer industry with the hugely popular and ground-breaking Apple II, the first mass-produced computer in a user-friendly plastic case with built-in keyboard.

Steve got Intel millionaire Mark Markkula to invest in the fledling Apple.

It was easy to tell the fledgling marketing visionary from the technical boffin.

"In the future computers will be this size." Visonary Steve knew he had to tame that hair if he was to get Apple into big business. The bow tie look didn't last for long, though.

The original laptop. Steve Jobs achieved legendary computer status with the launch of the Macintosh computer in 1984.

Steve's bow tie was swapped for a smart straight tie for his appearance on the front cover of the premier issue of Macworld magazine.

But at home the Zen student didn't go for suits or bow ties, or even much furniture as he lived the minimalist dream that would become the Apple way.

Although in later life they counted each other as great friends, Steve Jobs and Microsoft founder Bill Gates were bitter enemies in business.

Steve was Apple and Apple was Steve. Here he is smart again for a rather obviously posed publicity shot.

And here's Steve looking every inch the causal millionaire at work.

Steve was popular with his close team workers but ultimately proved unpopular with the Apple board of directors and was forced out of the company in 1985.

The world of computers and the mainstream business media were in shock. Apple Computer without Steve Jobs? Unthinkable.

But Steve didn't hang around - after all he was just 30 years old. He wasn't a hanging around type of guy. He founded NeXT Computer, which he eventually sold back to Apple for the basis of its Mac OS X operating system.

This time he got investment money for NeXT from Ross Perot.

He also purchased the computer wing of George Lucas' Star Wars Electrical Light & Magic company, turning it into Pixar, which would revolutionise animated movies.

Steve returned to Apple in 1997, and briefly experimented with the big beard again - looking like a French rugby player. A millionaire tech visonary French rugby player in a turtleneck.

He didn't hang about back at Apple either, launching the (yes) revolutionary all-in-one iMac computer in 1998.

His Apple keynote events were the most popular ticket in the technology calendar. He nearly always had a surprise up his sleeve, although one time it was Safari for Windows. Come on, Steve - you can do better than that!

Sadly Steve fell ill with pancreatic cancer and liver complaints, and the strain on his body began to show.

Steve might have been seriously ill but he continued to work at Apple, missing just a few months here and there for vital treatment.
