Success is a very relative term for all of us but there are certain names who are not only influential all around the globe but are also famous for the struggle for being what they are. Every big name has a story attached with his name and has something different to offer. These names keep on shifting with passage of time but they sure do stuff that leaves their name in history books for years to come. This is a brief introduction to few of such personalities. 1.

In the same era he gave the world concept of ‘desktop publishing’ along with laser printer and personal computer networking. He gave new concepts in computer animated films after he was fired from apple at the age of 33.
