    The problem I have with Steve Jobs is that he refused to pay child support to an out of wedlock child he had during his younger years. I refer to him to a Deadbeat Dad. Only when the state of California made him pay the back child support plus the welfare money the state spent on his child and her mother did he pay it. That's my take on Steve Jobs-just another Deadbeat Dad.

    Steve Jobs had a huge impact on the world ('universe') and the infographic does an excellent 'job' of visualizing his life in a timeline.
