STEVE JOBS IS NO EINSTEIN
The death of Steve Jobs is certainly sad. But, I think there is a lot of hyperbole swirling around the media and among the mourners. The latest is that Steve Jobs is an Einstein or an Edison which I think is a little over the top. He may have been a smart guy but, I don't think he was smarter than most of the engineers and programmers who worked at Apple. He may have been the guy who said yes or no on what products Apple would make. But, the programmers, mechanical and electrical engineers are the ones who made it happen. They are still here and they will still make it happen. Nobody is irreplaceable not even Steve Jobs. The world and we go on and there will be another person to replace Steve Jobs. There always is.
