I don't think anyone said that. I think there is a large difference between what some people saying Jobs did and reality though. I have seen many people say he was a great inventor or this, that and the other, and well, he simply wasn't the inventor of those things at all.
Apple came out with products that were better versions of things that already existed. But the fact that they were better isn't why they sold like hot cakes in most cases IMO.
They made other companies step up their games, which is great for all of us who use technology. They still have an overpriced product no matter what product you are buying from them. They still market their product better than anyone else too.
