@evildictaitor: Let's not forget the teams behind the person. It's not like he did all this on his own.
Also, he did not invent many of the things he get's credit for, he perfected them. Where his competitors had products that scored 6 out of 10, Apple's products always scored 10 out of 10.
That to me is his big achievement, taking the consumer seriously and putting the consumer central in his strategy. Coming up with new ideas using existing technology. Hell, they created a whole lifestyle around their products. This sort of focus is what I miss in almost any other company. I hope they keep the innovation up and stop with these rediculous lawsuits.
