The younger and dumber Jobs bet the company on new shiny tech, forfeiting entire lines like the apple II in the process. The MacOS pre-quicktime also offered the most consistent user experience ever. If you wanted to do digital audio reliably, the ancient design of MacOS beat the much touted preemptive multitasking, memory protected Win systems.
Result: Apple on constant brink of collapse, saved by Microsoft who bought Apple stock so they could say We are not a monopoly.
The older Jobs, butthurt after being ousted by Apple, returns as a control freak, cranks out colored macs with no expansion options, the ipod (a portable storage unit who could not work as portable storage, an item with a standard connection that needed custom and single platform software to work), the Iphone (they saw nokia put a pc in a phone with the nokia 770, and so they put the equivalent of a locked down console in a phone, BRILLIANT), treats users as dumbasses (you're holding it wrong).
Result? Microsoft dethroned, AND History rewritten so that Jobs is synonimous with genius.
Who is "the prince of this world" again? QED.
