One last link, kind of touching on the Daily Mail article, but with some very good quotes in there:
This Dianamania is a slur on Jobs ? The Register
Let’s remember Jobs for what he achieved. He’d be the first to agree that there are more important things in the world than media devices, and he made that case very eloquently

Steve Jobs, not a visionary but a maker of decent phones, I pick mine up on Friday
I believe the Apple computer - compared to a Windows machine - is a far faster and more efficient machine. A computer geek friend of mine who knows his stuff said comparing the efficiency, speed and potential of the Apple machine to the Windows machine was like comparing a jet engine to a propeller engine. Didn't Steve Jobs invent the Apple computer? If so, in my opinion he is visionary in the sense that he was first to come up with that particular computer design.

Superb in the Rebel Alliance, but whos visionary became the Empire.
Adjective: (esp. of a person) Thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom: "a visionary leader".
Would suggest yes then.
Noun: A person with original ideas about what the future will or could be like.
Would open debates around the term "original" no doubt and call into question "Job's the Visionairy" The iPod wasn't a visonairy product (mp3 players had been around forever), but it's did change the game and that wasn't by accident. Making it work took vision becuase the existing soultions weren't working. (Apply that to tablets, and smart phones)
Synonyms: adjective. fanciful - imaginary
noun. dreamer - daydreamer
yes and yes then.
For me, "Jobs' as a visionairy" was never in question. I think the arguments/debates about this often gets into his involvement in the technical side of things which tbh, I have no idea about his expertise in.
Always going to be a hot topic this one wasn't it
I guess the definition of visionary would include most of us just on a much smaller scale. Hey - I am happy with that.
As for talking about Jobs did much more the the "i" most people who say he is "Jesus" are Mac/iPhone fans, not the ones who were even aware of his roll on Pixar etc. In fact most of them didnt even know (know a few of those personally) till they were reading articles released on Steve's passing.
