"There's a popular saying about three apples that have changed the world: Adam's apple, Isaac Newton's apple and Steve Jobs "Apple". As successful as the founder of Apple was, Jobs passed away Thursday without ever having met his real father, despite their living in the same country.

In 1995 he started what would become a widely used auction site. Would anti-immigration policies espoused by today's Republicans have prevented such progress from occurring?  The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.  Read more at "The life and times of Steve Jobs’ Syrian father."
