“What a blockbuster year Steve Jobs had,” Leander Kahney writes for Wired News.
Kahney writes, “Not only did he manage Apple’s seamless switch to Intel, he probably made the company the most money in its 30-year history. (I say probably, because the only dark spot — a stock options backdating scandal — may yet prompt a restatement of earnings.)”
“Financial scandal or no, Apple’s comeback is a solid validation of Jobs’ business chops. Jobs is too much of a liberal iconoclast to be taken seriously by the corporate world, but 2006 showed he’s up there with the greats,” Kahney writes.
