In other words we see eberhart as brilliant mainly because steve jobs wrought the lens that lats us see it for what it was. Jobs reduction of computer science to consumer devices was his brilliance.
This is overwrought, to put it mildly. What do Jobs' consumer products have to do w/ the technology demonstrated by Engelbart? That is, "computer [mice] as well as of video conferencing, teleconferencing, hypertext, word processing, hypermedia, object addressing and dynamic file linking, revision control, and a collaborative real-time editor."
I'll agree that the original Mac popularized the mouse, and possibly WYSIWYG word processing, but none of the other topics owe their popularity to (for example) the iPod, iPhone, etc.
