Steve founded Apple® Computer in 1976, and launched the first successful personal computer (the Macintosh®) in 1984. I was working as an electrical engineer at the time and remember the incredible buzz that it created. Since then we have all enjoyed the iPod®, iPad®, iPhone®, and Pixar®. Steve was a true visionary and prolific inventor. He is named as an inventor on 312 issued Apple patents, and a handful of pending applications.
