  1. I’m halfway through the very thick, very intense book that has likely captured who Steve Jobs was better than anything out there. He was definitely a very complicated individual with so many layers that only one like him can be produced every so often in time, however, I would have to ask, would Jobs have reached such a pinnacle without Wozniak? I think they both definitely needed eachother and the world is certainly better for it. I didn’t realize how much “THEY” helped revolutionize technology
