Steve Jobs didnt have a huge impact at all other than the fact that people are making him SEEM bigger than he really is.

which is what this arguement is really about, not about him as an individual but the fan boys and sheep who glorify this guy even though the released biography indicates he wasn't too great of a guy.

read up on the "48 laws of power" and you'll know what angle I'm coming from on this.

Derp, you know what I meant: he didn't made any BIG or meaningful impact in my life; talking about him is no big deal.

Apple did cause the smartphone and mp3 player market to be really competitive and a big thing. Apple didn't create or revolutionize either market but they made it a big market and everyone else jumped in trying to get the sales from Apple.. I'm sure we wouldn't have as many amazing smartphones or mp3 players if it weren't for Apple, the market wasn't there and when it would be there it would have been much later on..
