Steve Jobs a god?


Just stop the crooning over the life of this guy, who credits LSD for his ability to "think differently." So, Steve Jobs created a bunch of i-devices. Big whoop. If it wasn't him, some other LSD-enlightened fellow or gal would have come up with "smart" devices. Really. "Important guy" obits are appropriate (do we really need hundreds of them?) Just note his life/accomplishments and move on. (although it is kind of fun to see the liberal media's lovefest over one of their own while another wing of lefties is flapping about protesting Wall Street and rich executives, like Jobs.)

Lots of obscure, dedicated folks work at creating businesses, using smarts, ideas, timing and perseverance. Jobs' success had the same ingrediants, but I don't see anything that sets him apart from the rest of the human race. He was known to take credit for other people's inventions, and sometimes call employees "bozo" and worse. He lived, did some stuff people like, and died. How much praise-oozing coverage is too much?
