What I don't get is this guy was a CEO. He pushed certain products forward, and moved a company (argueably an industry) into advancing well beyond its time.
But he didn't go to the benches and create the tech with his hands. He didn't create the tech on his own. He said, "Make me this" and a bunch of engineers made the products. He said, "Make these changes" and they did.
But why does he get all the credit? What's really so special about what he did?
I don't want this to be a flame fest... and I'm not trolling. But I've never understood how people can EVER claim a CEO, General (in an army), or otherwise top boss can make everything happen. There are some exceptions where the CEO was a small dog who started a dream and made the first products him/herself. But it's rare today. I'm sure Jobs was very influencial... but can any one piece of technology be tied to his own hands?
