Without a doubt, were it not for Apple being a teacher AND a journalist would be a lot more difficult and a lot less fun. Steve Jobs made MY jobs better, period.

Poll Question: What was Steve Jobs' most innovative product? I'd have to say it was the Lisa computer - a commercial flop but way ahead (too far ahead) of its time. The first consumer computer with a mouse, desktop, icons, windows, etc. - everything that we now think of as "a computer". Lots of people and companies come up with one really good product. Steve Jobs did it over and over and over again - that's genius.
