He was a parasite but atleast he affected the ignorant elite the most with his overpriced and underwhelming products. Other than the iPhone he made nothing revolutionary and would hardly be a blip on the radar if it wasn't for his brilliant marketing. WHo else would have imagined you could shove low end hardware into a shiny box and make so much money.
While I do agree with you as I said before and as Skymtl said you can't deny the influence he has had on technology and the world. Whether or not you think it to be good or bad.
