En bref – Un autre rapprochement entre Jobs et la photo

Le NYT fait un rapprochement entre Jobs et le créateur de Polaroid, Edwin H. Land, l’un et l’autre inventeurs fort riches et fort soucieux de verrouiller le marché à coup de brevets.

IN the memorials to Steven P. Jobs this week, Apple’s co-founder was compared with the world’s great inventor-entrepreneurs: Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell. Yet virtually none of the obituaries mentioned the man Jobs himself considered his hero, the person on whose career he explicitly modeled his own: Edwin H. Land, the genius domus of Polaroid Corporation and inventor of instant photography.
