Steve Jobs (1955-2011), who has died aged 56 following a long battle with pancreatic cancer, made an unprecedented impact on the world’s consumer electronics markets with a string of hit products, including the iPod, iPhone and iPad. In little over a decade, he took Apple (the company he co-founded in 1976) from near-bankruptcy to being the world’s second most valuable company by market capitalization.

Jobs and Apple CEO John Sculley unveil a new Macintosh computer, Feb. 6, 1984. The relationship between Jobs and Sculley began to sour, and in 1985 the board removed most of Jobs’ powers and he left the company. Jobs had famously lured Sculley from Pepsi with the question, “Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”
