Wow, I'm no SJ fan, but with as influential as he was and with his particular talents that arguably extended well into genius territory it really surprised me to see people that are already tired of hearing about him. This isn't the 10th or even the 2nd biography published since his death either - it is the first. And it is the only "authorized" biography where the biographer was given extensive access to Jobs and even some of his family.
Like him or not, SJ was extremely important to not just computers but to the whole field of consumer product design, brand imaging, business, and so on and so on. This guy was much more than just Mr. iPhone and there is good reason for there to be much interest in him.
If SJ isn't worthy of all this attention, who would be? Balmer - no, and still living. Gates - no, and still living. Qaddafi - please no. Honestly there's no one I can think of that deserves this much attention any more than Steve Jobs. So, as one who has a certain level of disdain for Apple and all its doings, I still say it's silly to complain about the attention SJ is getting in the immediate weeks after his death. I suppose we could instead lavish our attentions on <insert political despot or mass murderer or Bernie Madoff here>, but Jobs seems to be much more interesting and worthy.
