    Believe it or not Adobe actually made the Mac successful. When the Mac launched, despite its initial sales it soon flopped due to its lack of software. Adobe developed Photoshop and that made the Mac the image professionals weapon of choice. In fact that kept them alive throughout Apple's darkest hour in the 90's.

    I would bet Apple would not be here today if it were not for Photoshop.

    I would have thought Jef Raskin would make the list.

    Odd how Jonathan Ive has the many successes and then there's the Cube. Woz should have been on that list; or at least Honorable Mention...

    Why in the world did they put them in alphabetical order only to number them backwards from 10? That was odd. But a cool list nonetheless.
