What Steve Jobs did was put an amazing team of engineers and designers around a clear vision that he didn't slack on, and he got their best.

We may not like what Apple's legal team does these days, but you still have got to love that faithful execution of clean, inspired design. Whether you deal with his machines or something influenced by them, you've got to appreciate the man.

"What would Steve do" will likely be a mantra in a lot of design disciplines for some time to come.
