  1. “These 10 products represent Steve Jobs’ most iconic creations…”

    I call BS.

    Just for the record… Steve Jobs’ did not create any of these items. They were created by others. Steve’s greatest capability is to know what’s good, what’s the future, and what is not. The vast majority of the time when he sees an item (product or service) he knows whether it will be the future or not. When he sees such an item he supports it and pushes it despite what the “current wisdom” is.

    He’s not perfect, e.g., the hockey puck mouse. He sometimes sees too far into the future, e.g., optical media only on NeXT, for which the world really was not ready until the iMac. However, his track record of knowing what the next great thing shall be has been far, far better than *anyone* else in the industry.

    1. Jobs did not personally do all of the work inventing/producing these products. That much is true. However, without Jobs do any of them exist at all, much less today? It is extremely clear that the answer to that question is a definite NO. We salute his vision in recognizing and supporting Ives, for example, as his genius. So in that sense he is responsible for them (as opposed to Al Gore claiming responsibility for the internet because he did not vote against the funding for the agency that supported much of the original work).
