Re: "oh boy"
"It could be argued with equal facility that another genius might've come along and invented these same things, just in a different fashion."
You mean those people that invented things and brought them to market 'before' apple 'claimed to have invented' them?
Like the first mp3 player in 1997... 4yrs before the ipod... or the first touch screen phones...some 4-5yrs before the iphone.
Apple 'invented' very little... they stole ideas with impunity and marketed them in such a way that people 'believe' they invented them... and then he cries foul when others release similar stolen ideas. Which makes me think... did he actually believe his own bullshit?
Steve Jobs wasn't a genius 'inventor, designer' or anything else... although... He was a genius at marketing bullshit and convincing people to follow him.
I know the fanbois are out in force on this article and down voting to oblivion anyone who dares to criticise their 'idol'.
So by all means go at it, but just know that it doesn't make you right, it just proves that you aren't capable of accepting criticism of a very flawed man who did more shitty things than good, who treated his own flesh and blood worse than the current US president does... because when you can say Trump behaves better than Jobs... WTF has this world come too.
