The incredible, mind blowing Genius of Steve Wozniak, the under-rated person in public's eye concerning the computer revolution, not only invented the personal computer, but is the only human being to ever single-handed;y design and build a computer from scratch! The list of his amazing engineering feats and technical accomplishments (including the typing interface for the Universal Remote etc.) is absolutely staggering, and on top of that he is apparently one of the most un-assuming and nicest human beings you could ever meet.
Without him Steve Jobs could NEVER have done what he did. BUT, Steve Jobs DID have the the WOZ, and what he did that genius is leverage it into the largest, most profitable company in the history of the world at the time of his death! Along the way, he changed the way we do everything on computers, with MP3 players and music, with phones and apps, with notebook pads, and even movies with Pixar. His vision, determination, and extreme perfection smashed every market he touched, including the retail market, and broke every achievement record related to them. Nobody in our generation has changed the world like these two have!
Two of the most significant people of our time. Together, they literally changed the world and significantly impacted the lives of almost every person on Earth! In the late 90's and early aughts, MP3 players were known, well, as MP3 players. However, when Apple launched the iPod on October 21, 2001, it was such a huge success that it only took a couple of years for most people to simply start using the name "iPod" whenever they referred to an MP3 player.
