Steve Jobs, Lenin?

Forbes publisher Rich Karlgaard takes a bat to Steve Jobs, and writes a scathing editorial about Steve’s bullying ways. Or as they say, this is going to make as much impact as raindrops falling on an elephant’s back. Wall Street Journal: “Steve Jobs and other great American icons such as Henry Ford and Howard Hughes also combine in history’s worst tyrants. The cult of personality built around Lenin and Mao is not unlike the cult Macolytes have built around Mr. Jobs. One can only speculate what the two-sided genius potential of a baby Steve Jobs, dropped by a stork into Russia or China a hundred years ago, might have become. Deprived of a capitalistic playing field, where would his energies have gone? Toward the dark side is one guess.”
