And, like Edison, Mr. Jobs fiercely championed his own technologies over all others; just one example is in the field of electricity where Edison's DC lost the war to Tesla's AC. Time has yet to tell how well Mr. Jobs' walled garden devices and OS's do, finally.

A bit late, but I found this quote in relation to the topic quite interesting and perhaps fitting a not all too uncommon sentiment:

"Mayor Washington's words (..):

When he says that he would hope that I would have all the good qualities of past mayors, there are no good qualities of past mayors to be had. None. None. None. None.

I did not mourn at the bier of the late mayor. I regret anyone dying. I have no regrets about him leaving."
