Medley: Misattribution – Noted for the Record, on how a quote Eric Schmidt is reported as having attributed to Steve Jobs is really an Elizabeth Stone quote.

A number of people have compared Steve Jobs to Edison. If getting credit for things he didn't do but just popularized is what Steve will be remembered for, then, yeah: Sounds like Edison to me.

At least Jobs didn't insist Microsoft Windows be used to run gas chambers or somesuch to demonstrate the danger of Windows vs. MacOS... Possibly because he didn't have to.

FYI: The Wikipedia article on the Electric Chair is surprisingly bad. Haven't seen that bad of an article in a while.

Yeah - I was going to fold into my post a joke about Jobs' pattern of appropriating great ideas.. but decided it was too trite ;-)
