I will tell you why directly, and it is not like anyone abreast of technology does not know anyway. I do not use an iPod, iPhone, iPad, but if they would not have seen the widespread critical success they did much in today's world would be different. If it were not for the iPod and then iTunes, well music/media would not be distributed as it currently is, if not for the iPhone Android would not be where it is if it even existed in the same capacity as it does today, the general breadth of mobile goods and entertainment or materials was given another leg to stand on by the iPad if it gets 4 (IE: Android slate who's market was given birth by the iPad in all reality (no not developmentally but in consumer market strength) it will be a true beast. The thing is Steve Jobs was a visionary he saw things in a different way than others did. He also had one of the first personal technology companies specifically to develop these ideas as his own.
SO I may not use his products, I may not even like there proprietary nature which is very true. However the amount of devices born because of the competition he initialized and the media to fill those devices is still Steve Jobs baby/creation, at least in many ways. It would not have I do not believe existed without him, his vision, his creativity and the things that came from those creations.
The PC even; Come on was a TRS-80, or an Amiga easy to use, well no, but it had hearty competition at the time from who Apple! Because of the competition the device field grew. Would IBM have continued and made the PC open at least as it was at that time for communal development without Apple, well no it would not have. Would arcanet have developed into the internet if that had not happened, well the answer is again no. Did he create everything? No he did not but it takes a spark to start a fire and Steve Jobs at least to the way I see it was that Spark.
I could not have said it better myself Rapid1... hopefully there will be someone else to take his place and continue igniting the fire.
Well put, Rapid1. I may not be an iOS user, but I do appreciate the "spark" Steve and his ideas brought to our world.
