Steven Jobs, the designer of Apple Computer, was not quite successful in his early years. At that time, he was not among the best students at school, and from time to time he got into trouble with either his schoolmates or his teachers. But he was full of new ideas, which few people saw the value of. Things remained the same when he went up to college and he dropped out halfway (中途退学).

After he left college, Steven Jobs worked as a video game designer at Atari. He worked there for only several months and then he went to India. He hoped that the trip would give him some new ideas and a change in life for the better.

Along with his friend Stephen Woziak, he designed the Apple Computer in his garage (车库).

Anne and Joseph are talking about an interesting question. Why do some people change their names? There can be many reasons. Hanna changed her name to Anne because she thought it would be easier for people to remember. On the other hand, Joseph is thinking about changing his name to an unusual one because he wants to be different.

People have a lot of reasons for changing their names. Film stars, singers, sportsmen and some other famous people often change their names because they want the names that are not ordinary, or that have special sound.
