Much has already been said and written about Jobs' career path, from founding Apple (AAPL - Get Report) to redefining a little digital imaging company into the entertainment powerhouse that is now Pixar. Jobs is being hailed as a genius, a visionary, and the man who revolutionized the way the world writes, communicates, listens to music, and shares information. One commentator likened him to Thomas Edison, a pioneer whose innovative thinking shaped our lives in the 20th century just as Jobs' legacy will shape them in the 21st.
