Steve Jobs Legacy

I enjoyed this NYTimes retrospective of the impact of Steve Jobs and what he accomplished with Apple. Money quote:
Again and again, [Jobs] would step up to entrenched players in the media with calcified business models and explain their business to them in ways they did not recognize from the inside. ... In the case of music, many of us wanted the ease and portability of MP3 files, but didn’t want to become mouse-enabled criminals taking the music we wanted. From that perspective, 99 cents seemed like a small price to pay.
