theodp writes “Over at Slate, Tim Wu argues that the iPad is Steve Jobs’ final victory over Steve Wozniak. Apple’s origins were pure Woz, but the Mac, the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad are the products of the company’s other Steve. Jobs’ ideas have always been in tension with Woz’s brand of idealism and openness. Crazy as it seems, Apple Inc. — the creator of the personal computer — is leading the effort to exterminate it. And somewhere, deep inside, Woz must realize what the release of the iPad signifies: The company he once built now, officially, no longer exists.”
