Since his death, Steve Jobs and Apple have been credited with inventing everything from the personal computer to the internet.
Yeah, seriously. We all know Al Gore invented the internet, at his kitchen table. <G>

But really, Steve Jobs wasn't even the smartest mind at Apple. That would be Woz. Perhaps Jobs had some level of a "vison" (whatever that really means), but Jobs' arrogance killed the IIgs, which was probably the better path to have taken.

While that is true, the entrepreneurial skill set that he possessed is at least as rare as genius-level IQ. It's a blend of intelligence, vision, initiative, and managerial ability ... along with the desire to work 120 hours a week, at least in the first stages of the venture.
