Steve Jobs never invented anything.  He was a marketing genius, and a psychopath.   http://justnotsaid.b...steve-jobs.html

 
What were Jobs's values? I could see no redeeming humanity or compassion in this guy. He was a sociopath. I mean, he had all the traits. He was abusive, habitually lies, steals ideas from others, relies on intimidation and bullying to get his way, is incapable of receiving criticism, micromanages others, and even parks his Mercedes in the handicapped parking lot. 
 
Steve Jobs had no compassion, humility, or even simple human empathy.  Steve Jobs was quite simply evil. There is no other word for people who so exploit and manipulate others, and who find ways to evade responsibility and honesty their entire lives. He's a piece of work, a monster. And he doesn't deserve the respect and attention accorded to him, no matter how great a marketeer he was.  
 
According to Apple cofounder, Steve Wozniak, "Steve didn't ever code. He wasn't an engineer and he didn't do any original design... Daniel Kottke, one of Apple's earliest employees and a college friend of Jobs', stated that "Between Woz and Jobs, Woz was the innovator, the inventor. Steve Jobs was the marketing person."

Apple's Rotten Core  

 

As the second chart illustrates, the market for costly mobile phones is saturated: everyone on the planet who could afford one and wants one has already bought one. As we all know, the “fix” for saturation is to speed up the product cycle so the existing owners are forced to buy a newer and much more costly model every year or two.

 

But this strategy also has diminishing returns: people get tired of getting ripped off by accelerating replacement cycles and eventually some percentage step off the merry-go-round and switch to a much cheaper and less demanding (product-cycle-wise) alternative.
