Steve Jobs never learned a goddamned thing. That is not what I would ever refer to as brilliance, genius, creativity, or even sanity. It was dumb luck. A twice-gone flash in the pan attempt at domination of the entire consumer tech ecosystem. Steve Jobs was a would-be tyrant, arrogant piece of shit. He was so arrogant he didn't even want to treat his cancer. He though he would just get over it.
I'm not particularly disagreeing with anything that has been said. I did think I failed to elaborate on why I have never been impressed with Apple or Steve Jobs. I don't want to be the end-all be-all pundit either. Really, I believe there is more need for moderation on the subject of Steve Jobs.
