Who dies before Jobs?
When Jobs was in charge, they brought out a phone that did half of what competitors did. They pretended it was the latest and greatest and others were copycats...copycats with more functionality and time on the market that is.

The only "model" that Apple has been cultivating is the masses of idiots who buy into marketing because they don't know any better. They figure it must be true of Apple would get sued....if they have millions to invest in themselves while cases are dragged through an endlessly delayed court system. Apple is a follower, not a leader by any meaning of the term. They created nothing! Better phones were on the market long before iPhone. WAAAAY better digital music players were on the market years before the iPod. They simply can't afford to out market Apple, who then lies like a rug and makes an open and shared format into a low quality and very limited, proprietary marketplace, which others can't join unless they live and breathe Apple.
I am not sure what "visionary" you are referring to, besides the guy who ran Apple on the basis of marketing and telling same the same lies over and over again until follower started to believe it.
Some people buy into the hocus-pocus so much they consider him a visionary.
