There’s no denying that Steve Jobs made a huge impact on the world, but many people don’t understand the true extent of the difference he made.  Infographic World has released a new infographic, ‘Farewell To A Genius’, that looks back on Steve Jobs life, starting with his birth in 1955 and touching on all of the major events in his life, including work, family life, quotes and more, all the way up to his death on October 5, 2011.

Some of the highlights of the infographic include when 21-year old Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple back in 1976, when Apple released the Macintosh in 1984, when Jobs resigned as Apple’s CEO in 1985 and when he returned in 1998, the iMac, the Power Mac, the iPod, the iPhone and more.

Check out the infographic below to “look back on the life and times of Steve Jobs, the man who strived to make a dent in the Universe” and, if you ask me, succeeded.  Which of Steve Jobs’ accomplishments made the biggest impression on you?  How did he inspire you?  We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
