Unfortunately Steve relied on a naturopathic diet instead of early surgery.

3) Steve Jobs was very bright and inspirational.
He created an organization that created great products.
I didn't use much of Apple products, but many other people did.
Steve Jobs inspired and pushed Apple's competitors to improve. These competitors delivered great products for me in part thanks to that competitive push from Apple.
Steve Jobs was a human who made mistakes too.

R.I.P.
