    he invented something that revolutionized the world, that's why he was successful.

    when you invent something special, sure you'll be appreciated

    Like Ford invented the car, do we really need to ask ourselves why they were successful?

    Great article. It's funny, my current method is the same as the first method that made me money, just tweaked here and there, and I stole the method from someone else originally. Stealing and tweaking truly is revolutionary since most people just steal and don't tweak.

    No he didn't. He paid other people to do the work for him. And he was willing to rip off his best friend from the very beginning. He was a great business man, but he was not an inventor, and he was a horrible human being.

    LoL. Ford didn't invent the car, the german Karl Benz did. Why do americans always think that they invented the car? Afaik Ford invented assembly lines.

    Cheers

    Actually the first car was designed in the 1700's and was steam powered. Steve Jobs didn't invent the iphone,ipod. He was just good at understanding what people would want,and put a team together to make it. Just like the President or Prime Minister of a country takes credit for everything that they do good. In reality other people come up with the policies for them.

    Edison was the real thief,he had people go out and pay people for their inventions,then claimed it as his own.

    I thought this was going to be about meth; if you watch Pirates of Silicone Valley, it'll pretty much show a little on how this went down (between Steve and Bill).

    He was an assholes creating staff which is spying on people.Iphone is the biggest spy and people are even paying horrible money for it to get spied.Only idiots are using Iphones where all data will be collected about him.What a smart choice expecially for a blackhatter.
    And no it wasnt him made apple so rich it was an investor from saudi arabia.He bought most of apple shares as apple was near bankruptcy .It was him (most of you blackhatters are way to young to know this arab guy) who planned to push apple back on top with inovation tools.Steve was just a small part of it.

    As both Gates and Jobs said (which was Pablo Picasso's quote),
    "Good Artists Borrow, Great Artists Steal."

    That's what happens everywhere on the world, the intelligent guy works hard, and the smart guys takes the profit.

    Wake up, we're living in a cruel world

    one single line from whole article is noticeable there

    ask yourself once more what made this guy so great :) ... The fact he produce a shit what can anyone produce ( motorola / nokia / big G / samsung ) virtually any manufacturer can produce any {crap|good gadget } .... difference between them and '' the rest '' ? sales folks :) ... the banking ! Yeh everyone (I think ) loves the look and feel of macbook air , even if if maybe worst portable laptop ever LOL ... still peoples buy it ;) ask yourself why ... how nanny of current macbook owners will change their lovely toy for dell M6600 ? ( think they are same price , only difference it's dell specs are like 20-30X than apple ) ... most probably none . Why ? ... because the different way how this shit is advertised for large public / consumers . Great products gone on the market most of them peoples didn't even noticed because the producers didn't had this fella skills , to actually sell hes shits :) and bank !

    Oldsmobile started the assembly line.. Henry Ford just made it famous.

    Back on topic: Steve Jobs sounds like a fucking asshole. I don't understand why people are so fascinated with a douche bag, who's acted like a douche bag his entire life and died being a douche bag.

    What a dick.. iPhone is a pile of crap and your shit OS is only good for people entertaining 4 year olds BTW, Steve, so it was all in vain. Hopefully it will go away now.

    Why not be fascinated by his counter-part, Mr. Gates? Who's legally shutting out all competition, including that other guy, Steve or whatever his name is, and donating 10s of billions of dollars to improve education and hunger in poorer areas?

    Topic shamelessly stolen from reddit, nice OP :p

    At any rate, I did read this article, and it is yet again interesting to me to see how many different spins/takes can be done on the same guy. Now that is something to be proud of.

    This one gives a fresh perspective, though. I haven't heard anybody call him a 'tweaker' yet but the author certainly makes a good case.

    If you think about it, everybody in IM is more or less of a tweaker. Nobody is really coming up with anything original, imo.
