Jobs 'delivers the digital dream'

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is "delivering on the digital dream", according to Forrester Research CEO George Colony.

The history of the technology industry reflects the fortunes of two men: Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, and Colony is impressed at the fortunes and success of Jobs, who he calls "The Digitizer".

He looks at Jobs' past: being kicked out of Apple in the late 1980s and NeXT's failure to establish powerful marketshare â after this he saw that "Jobs was a non-factor, a has-been from the bygone years of homebrew whimsicality, stuck in an era of corporate, enterprise-focused technology," Colony writes.
