Apple was established on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne.
Now 30 years later apple is an enterprise of innovation and creativity, that its visions of standing in the crossroads of Technology and Liberal Art stood in the test of time.
A person vision that converts into reality in his lifetime is simply divine! so unique you can compare it to a sun eclipse of rain of meteors (it happens, but there must be a 3rd party involved :) )
I believe that the visionary ability to execute his vision lay in his team, people who help him speak the language and make the vision a reality.
A lot has been said about Steve Jobs, mostly that he his an hard man to work with a "my way or the highway" kind of guy... but what can you expect from a man, that 30 years ago dreamed of something that others could not conceive ?
Not to say that this is the only way, look for example the CEO and Founder of Amazon Jeff Bezos who founded amazon in 1994, and I am sure that 20 years from today will release the first human robot or something like that :)
Vision execution is unique, ones who got the gift of doing so should apply it to make the world a better place, and enrich other people's life in the process
