What Makes Steve Jobs Special?


If James Watt had also invented the Deisel Engine …

If Rudolf Diesel had also invented Electric Engine …

If Guglielmo Marconi had also invented Telephony …

If Alexander Graham Bell had also invented Mobile Phones …

If Thomas Alva Edison had also invented the Fluorescent Lamp …

If Edgar F. Codd had also invented the rules of post RDBMS technologies …

Then they would be like Steve Jobs – the inventor of the next generation technology which supersedes his own invention.

It was the MAC which had started the WlMP (Windows Icon Mouse Pointer) era. It was the iPhone and then the iPad which started the post WIMP era.

Well … you may say that Steve Jobs did not invent the products alone. But then same thing can be said about all the name mentioned above.

    Great tribute to Steve and am sure that the world is thankful to him for the touch experience. It is difficult to visualise an interface without touch these days.
