Everyone has an opinion on Steve Job’s, and frankly, while I know he was a genius, I always considered him more of a refiner than an inventor. Similar to the Japanese who will refine an item to the n’th degree, and make anything better, they never really invent something totally new.
I just read an excellent article from Malcolm Gladwell online at the New Yorker that really goes into it on this side of Jobs that I am glad I am not alone on.
Malcolm gives a few examples, and provides insight from the biographer Walter Isaacson, including a famous back and forth between Jobs and Gates. Classic.
Give this a read and see what you maybe need to re-classify your opinion of Jobs.
