Apple

This fascinating documentary was filmed from December 1985 to March 1986 at NeXT's team retreat in Pebble Beach. It offers a rare glimpse of Steve's vision, aspirations and managerial approach.

Remarkable documentary - several planning meetings and discussions during NeXT's early days, with Steve Jobs and his team, many of which also worked on the Macintosh. You have to see this.

Nicely written and strengthen my claims.
He never invented something or make breakthrough from the technical or scientific point of view.
But from entrepreneur point of view he is to commended highly. The video shows this nicely, how he managed to inspire people, convince them to drop secure jobs at apple and ultimately force them to make great product in year and a half (which is very small window for such a product). How he saw an opportunity in specific segment of market and took that opportunity. The same principle can be seen when he returned to apple and set up a new vision oriented to small devices and consumer electronics. After that iPhone was just a evolutionary step, but the great mental shift for Apple was iPod.
