If I were Bezos, I'd take offense to this article basically summing me up as a second hand Steve Jobs, straight down to (some of) my personality. It starts to be less about technology and more about the cult status of Steve Jobs.
What you fail to realize is the fact that he changed A LOT of things the future of not only America will entail but other countries around the world will as well. A mind like his would be an honor to be compared to, not an insult or some "cult" mentality.
Give credit where credit is due, I may not personally be able to list EVERY influence he has had but I can tell you that it isn't a limited and only of its time, but rather quite a large spectrum and something so substantial humanity itself will change along with.
Development is key to the future and this guy, out of a garage, managed to take this on and change the world we live in and its future.
*Edit* Think about it, the things that are happening in our lifetime will be taught to our future generation of children as if it were what was taught to us in our school years, they are the future of society.Edited by CoolerMasterD - 10/28/11 at 7:59am
