Comments: Because the Navy Has Aircraft Carriers?
A man well suited to dealing with 0's and 1's, black and white, on and off .... He wouldn't have known a nuance if one came up and bit him in the ass. He did get filthy rich though, so ....

Actually, Jobs didn't know much about 0s and 1s, it was his friend Wozniak who took care of that- the Tesla to Steve Jobs' Edison.
Not holding it against him, though. The world needs both types (and as few gubmint obstacles as possible).

I don't think Jobs and Wozniak were friends, business partners yes. Friends, no. Jobs screwed the Woz over on a project at Atari.
You are correct, Wozniak was the brains behind apple, Jobs was the marketing guy.

Yes: Aircraft carriers.
That's the essential difference between the US Navy and pirates. Remember, with the Navy you can bomb Afghanistan, but you can't get sozzled.

In the late seventies I worked at a service business that Steve Wozniak frequented.
Mr. Wozniak was a personable fellow you could talk to. Steve Jobs would often accompany his partner to this establishment. Mr. Jobs had zero personality. Zero.

Because having a Russian destroyer sinking your vessel 1,500 miles offshore and then leaving you sucks big time?

No. Nuclear submarines.
