Can't get it in my mind why Steve Jobs is treated like he was the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Same reason many Americans celebrate piles of shit like Henry Ford and Bill Gates. Megalomaniacs are worshipped despite their vast flaws and overall net drain upon society. The good they've done (charity, enabling society in certain ways) is focused on while all the rotten externalities they contribute to (that the rest of us pay for) are typically ignored.
As far as Steve Jobs goes, I think he gets credit for being an innovator that helped to bring technology to the little people. I agree with that to a good extent, but I also think he was yet another megalomaniac who thrust externalities upon the rest of society in order to amass great wealth for himself and his company. But, unlike Bill Gates, I think Steve Jobs at least had more of a net gain to society than most megalomaniacs have. It's not saying much, but it is saying something.
