BBC has posted a video of photographer Doug Menuez describing photos he took took of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs after he'd been fired from the company.

In 1985, when Apple's board made Steve Jobs step down as the CEO of the company he founded, he decided to create the NeXT computer. NeXT became the computer on which Tim Berners-Lee developed the world's first web server software. Many called the period between 1985 and 1996 (when Mr Jobs returned to Apple) the start of the "digital revolution", when computers became commonplace and first appeared in homes. On his return, Mr Jobs brought Apple from near bankruptcy to profitability by1998. Photographer Doug Menuez had rare access to this exciting time.

The images can be found in Menuez's book entitled, 'Fearless Genius'. The book is available now and might make a good holiday gift for an Apple/Mac fan.

Take a look at the video below!

I miss Steve Jobs--never knew him but had the upmost respect from the first day I had the first Macintosh. I loved his artistic point of view which I fear is being lost and whittled down with each new system upgrade..I wish a cure had been found for him.

He wanted a child to take one of his own creations and use it to cure cancer. Yet, his fate leaded to pancreatic cancer. RIP Steve Jobs. I am sure, that person will come in with revolutionary technology leaded by your ideas and creation; it will become reality.
