Contrarian view on Steve Jobs’ legacy

Google's Tim Bray recounts meetings with Steve Jobs back in the days of NeXT. He's not quite the sycophant, and concludes:

I think I’m alone in the uni­verse in loathing Steve’s keynote style, which feels to me like preen­ing ar­ro­gance. The com­put­ers and music play­ers and mo­bile phones have been great, but I think that in his­tory’s rear-view, his biggest achieve­ment will be hav­ing ripped music re­tail­ing out of the la­bels’ hands, and mo­bile soft­ware out of the tele­phone com­pa­nies’. We’ll see.
