Steve Jobs is rightly recognized as a peerless salesman and designer. He may not have invented the mouse interface, the wireless LAN, or multi-font personal computers - but without him, these now essential capabilities would have been a long time getting into our hands. Thanks for telling another of the many stories that deserve wider distribution.
It is a little sad to see that every technological advancement now is being attributed to steve Jobs. It is obvious that some engineer that worked for Lucent came up with the idea of WIFI. It wasnt Steve Jobs that created anything. He just stole other people's ideas.
How did we survive without wireless Internet? Steve Jobs had the vision and the power to turn promising technology into a new paradigm: ubiquitous access to information. Great to be witnessing the breakthrough of this technology, thanks Cees and team.
