The rise, fall and rise of Steve Jobs

Geeks will find this post boring. Non-geeks will, I hope, find this post intriguing.

On the way home from church this morning, were talking about how lame and annoying Macs were in the early nineties. I recalled something I'd heard about Steve Jobs being the one who made Apple awesome and that's why IT managers all want to be Steve Jobs.

Well, according the Wikipedia:

In the late 1970s, Jobs, with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, created one of the first commercially successful personal computers. In the early 1980s, Jobs was among the first to see the commercial potential of the mouse-driven graphical user interface.[11] After losing a power struggle with the board of directors in 1985, Jobs resigned from Apple and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher education and business markets. NeXT's subsequent 1997 buyout by Apple Computer Inc. brought Jobs back to the company he co-founded, and he has served as its CEO since then. Steve Jobs was listed as Fortune Magazine's Most Powerful Businessman of 2007.[12]
