And another Steve Jobs has resigned from Apple post
There are many, many people commenting on the resignation of Steve Jobs as CEO of Apple, and not all of it is glowing.
Say what you want about the man, but he resurrected the company from being a laughing-stock in the industry, to one of the largest and most successful companies in the world. Here is one of the more honest assessments of Jobs as I’ve seen so far:
Steve Jobs could be arrogant and unpleasant, a brutal man a sane person would not want to work for. But the products he created will be his monuments. And so will the memory of how he created those products.
Unlike those folks in Washington who dare not offend their favored constituencies—Republicans unwilling to raise taxes, Tea Party members who praise James Madison’s belief in small government but not his belief in checks and balances and compromise, Congressional Democrats unwilling to offend senior citizens or labor, a President unwilling to stick his neck out to endorse the work of the bipartisan budget-balancing commission he appointed—Steve Jobs has been a true leader.
Like Edison, he’s been an inventor and a man who has changed our lives.
Sounds like a real leader in a world where we have too few.
