Apple "Ten years ago to this very week, Steve Jobs killed Apple. Or he began to take apart many of the projects and organization that many inside and outside the company thought of as Apple's value to the computing industry. This event was the announcement of the company's infamous spring 1997 reorganization, which continued step-by-step throughout the spring. For the company's long-suffering developers and ISVs, push came to shove at the annual WWDC, where Steve Jobs revealed his plans for Apple's future direction. Today, with the iPod-influenced haze over of recent Apple history as well as the success of Apple's retail strategy and the Intel-Macintosh transition, we forget that some of that 'future' talked up in 1997 never happened."

The sentence is ambiguous but not necessarily incorrect. It can mean either the intended meaning or the one that you brought up.

Use of comma, that's a biggie... I agree with tpchur, it's not wrong or correct.

By the way, in my opinion it'd be a "style-Nazi": as far as I know, commas in English do not have a syntactical function (in contrast to other languages). It's a matter of style instead.
