Treating Jobs as some sort of messiah is getting a bit tiresome. Apple was successful under his leadership in the later years. On the other hand, there were a lot of other people running Apple and contributing to product development. They deserve to be acknowledged too. Another thing to consider is that the popularity of Apple's products is probably a fad. I'm not saying this to downplay the work of the people who created and marketed those products, but there are many companies that have a brief moment in the spotlight then fade away.

Also, let's be real here: Apple is a business that is operated by mortals. They have had some great successes, but those successes are determined by how willing the market is willing to accept their product.
