The only reason Jobs (and Apple) got as far as he did was because of his non-technical talent. Jobs could sell a turd, Woz was able to hack a feature that required a $1500 chip (Color Video) into their first mass production computer (Apple II) with about a dollar in parts, the only catch was, it only worked countries that used technically shitty broadcast standards (US, Canada, Mexico, and Japan).

Maybe, he didn't write code like you are familiar with; but he soldered chips onto boards and wrote low level assembler. And later, he was using ObjC.

Bill Gates is the one who never actually coded; but promoted himself as some sort of elite coder.

This is propaganda!

The genius could solder! That's amazing! What were his other refined skills? Could he drill?

Where did you learn that of Bill Gates?

Anon, this isn't news. We all knew Steve was a face man and not a programmer.

Well, he was a crack product designer too, with the gift of abusing technical people juuust the right amount to get them to produce their absolute best work before having a nervous breakdown. He was a complete asshole, by all accounts, but a very effective asshole.

Disagree. Considering the support he had from Woz, the budgets he had to complete projects, and the level of talent available at the time his delivery accomplishments were actually quite modest. Abusing people isn't some elite hack to get people to work faster. It delays projects.

More like some guy who did a lot of drugs and came up with lots of crazy ass ideas for products that actually sells.

Yeah... All those people waiting in line for a liver and Steve jobs juuuuust happens to be the next in line. His name and money stole another person's life so he could bother us to be alive a moment longer.

I didn't like jobs. I don't think he was necessary for tech to Advance and he certainly hindered it as much as possible until his dying breath.

So you know, like, screw Steve jobs man

And he didn't need to. He managed the business and product design.
