I never thought much of him from the start

Alex Gibney's 'The Man in the Machine': Is it Time to Rethink Steve Jobs? - The Atlantic

This may sound silly, but I resist buying into the world of Apple for two reasons:  the way they retain complete control of what's going on under the hood, so to speak; and the disdain with which I view Steve Jobs.

Same reasons as me. Apple controls too much leaving the consumer with too few choices, especially in relation to software and hardware.

As for Jobs, what a fiction. He invented nothing, ripped off Wozniak, the products were way over priced, and he was an asshole who treated staff with contempt. He was a marketing whiz but that's all. Now compare that to Microsoft: even secretaries there became millionaires, many employees retired early very rich, and Microsoft had to provide a platform to suit countless varieties of software and hardware.
