Contrary to my obsolete expectations for the Post Cook Apple, I realiize that Apple's impact to the wolrd's industrial era is much deeper than one person could imagine! I guess I have been mourning, for several years already, Steve's passing. One comment about "Gartner has identified some basic traits shared by the leaders" is that the very points (many more than 4) that Gartner is proposing as ranking criteria are the same that has distinguished Job's own Apple from any other predecessor. Please, let me know if I suffer from a type of ADD, for I thought I read attentively Steve Job's wonderful biography (Walter Isaacson) from birth to about 2006, and didn't noticed any reference to any other names other than those of Job's and Wozniak's associated with Apple's initial ownership.
