My daughter's CEO is close personal friends with him. He got his first job at apple at age 19. He says if it wasn't for Jobs their multi-billion dollar business wouldn't even exist.

They just said on CNN that he may be considered the greatest CEO of all time. Just think of that. And the saddest part is that he could have done this for maybe 15 or 20 more years. Who knows what we will never have because he died so young?

Totally agreed.

Loved Patton Oswalt's tweet about him being the closest thing to Tony Stark we ever had.

he was a visionary, so my guess is, his 'plans' are in good hands and more 'stuff' is to come...

Just for the record. He didn't invent the iPod just populariized it in the US. A company named Thomson held 7 of the 18 patents on DRM rights with most of the important ones being held there. In the early days they had to pay Thomson $25 per iPod which was more profit than Apple was making. What made Apple go to the next level though is when they figured out that the iPod was really worth about $500 per user to them and created iTunes. BINGO - a star is born.

They didn't invent the iPad either....believe it or not 3Com held those rights on touch screen devices through their Audrey patent back in the 90's. Samsung had put out something like this 10 years prior joined by many others that never gained the momentum.

What made Jobs great was that he was able to market these ideas better than anyone and time them into the market extremely well.

It wasn't the actual devices that make Jobs a star it was the content and applications that drive the platforms which did and made Apple very wealthy.

As a CEO/Marketer, he was outstanding but I will still take Jack Welch as my CEO any day.
