<It’s weird, masturbatory, Wired Magazine bullshit & it leads to the lionization of no-talent con artists like Steve Jobs.
Hmmm. Can you name a single thing Steve Jobs invented? I can't. He was a mentally ill guy with buttonphobia (really). How about Bill Gates? Now unlike with Jobs, I know Gates has or had good programming skills and some understanding of technology. But I still can't say whether he invented anything, even a smaller thing like the scroll-wheel on the mouse. (And arguably that isn't even a good small invention in the big picture, but just a way of coping with too many different sizes and ratios for displays. With lower variety in screens, programs could be screen optimized so you don't have to scroll ever.) There is nothing new there, really.
