Steve Jobs, Inventor of Everything

Cory Doctorow has the story of Steve Jobs deciding to put himself into a Disney ride.

Disney is renovating the Spaceship Earth ride at Epcot Center and will include Steve Jobs (but not Steve Wozniak) in its animatronic depiction of the history of communications -- but not Steve Wozniak, the pioneering hardware virtuoso who created the early Apple computers.

What a jackass. I will never get the image out of my head of this megalomaniac parading across the stage screaming about the iPhone. "Its a phone, Its music player, are you getting it? are you getting it?". Yes you dunce, because we aren't ninnies and personally I've had a phone that played downloaded music in Japan for 3 years.

Its just one of the benefits of being on the board at Disney, you can write people out of history.
