This is no longer Applicable and hasn't been since Apple bought NeXT.
There are two stupid things that Steve did since coming back and many
many smart things...
Two stupid things:
1. Kill Newton while market was young
2. Release the Cube at the wrong time and targeted at the wrong market

For people who care about how computing makes them feel emotionally...
peecees are automatically worse... for people who get enjoyment out of
computing sometimes, but mainly see computers as a tool... pc's may or
may not be worse... for people we care about who see computers as a
tool but are the exception to the rule (see Dave)... automatically
I'm in the enjoyment camp. PC's are never FUN to use...never
INSPIRING... and ... plain infuriating at times... but just work most
of the time. I'd rather program a Ti-81.
