Jobs was a salesman. Apple's salesman. It's not that Apple is really all that revolutionary today compared to what else is out there, they (he) just knew how to sell it.

I don't, and never had any Apple shares, but everyone I worked with back in the early 90's in the IT field that did...dumped their shares either when Jobs was diagnosed, or after he punched out...because they knew what was to come.

Apple shares are down, iPhone 5 sales are dismal (Apple admitted this) and their products are just simply built worse than they used to be.
