Got my first Mac in 1985, including the original LaserWriter. Have only had Macs since. Got the iPhone. Got the iPod. Got the iPad. Make no excuses for abuses of consumers and workers by Apple, but they make damn good products.
Steve Jobs made Apple great. Then the board hired John Sculley from Pepsi-Cola, nudged Jobs out, and the company tanked to the brink of bankruptcy with stock selling for pennies. (Wish I’d bought stock in 1997.)
So they gave up, gave Apple back to Jobs, and his innovation put it on track to become the trillion dollar success it is today. It is all Steve Jobs.
Again, no excuses for the personal and corporate flaws, but credit for innovation where due.
