Last Updated Oct 10, 2011 4:07 PM EDT

You could remember Steve Jobs as a pioneer. An innovator. As someone who didn't compromise and who eventually brought much of the world to see things his way. But another way to see him is as a business genius. Although he made his share of mistakes, Jobs made one amazing call after another, doing things that critics sometimes thought were insane, but which turned out to be prescient.
