    I read an article about Edwin Land a while ago, the similarities to Apple and Steve Jobs are remarkable. One of Jobs' favorite quotes, that 'Apple products are at the crossroad of art and technology', is almost a word-for-word repeat of one of Land's favorite quotes about Polaroid products (I think Land used 'science' instead of 'technology').

    Jobs was no original.
