Two books came out last week: Idea Man , about (and by) Paul Allen; and The Steve Jobs Way , about (but not by) Steve Jobs. These books reveal differences in the approaches the two men took to achieving their goals, showcasing why Apple is so successful and why other companies just can't make the grade. I think by looking at these two men, we can gain insights on a lot of things: why Apple may not be successful after Jobs departs; the problems brewing at Google; the difficulties Microsoft has had competing in the consumer electronics space; RIM's likely PlayBook failure; and HP's CE issues.


Same as another famous "inventor"

Edison's company hired the talent and Edison himself took credit for everything invented because he was competing with Tesla's genius. Kind of how Jobs is obsessed with beating Gates. Sorry Steve, history has it's number one, you will always be second to Gates
