I need not say more: iPad 2 release in less than a year. The power of competition and what happens when Apple is challenged.

Sir Jobs: I know some people dislike you and they may very well have good reasons but I am a fan of your drive, passion and creative mind. Through thick-and-thin you were aligned with Apple. You saved the company and you helped guide it to newer and brighter pasteur’s. You never quit, at least not for the long-term, and you generated a following - you did not do it alone but you certainly orchestrated it. You never let go. Sincerely, Me

It is not about who you were or your mistakes, it is about who you become and how your mistakes / faults / setbacks take you to precisely the point you once daydreamed about.
