Absolutely. In my opinion Elon Musk has brought much more innovation to our lives than Steve Jobs. I have a respect for Apple and Steve Jobs but what he did Samsung and other companies have done even better and even at lower prices. Elon Musk on the other hand seems like is not from this planet. What he accomplishes with Tesla and SpaceX and other projects that he is involved in is totally different. This man has proven that he cares about his customers and listens to their wishes because not once he brought new and desired features to Teslas through upgrades. He was always a helping hand in all sort of disasters and he showed magnificent skills in managing his companies. It's like he never sleeps. For me just Tesla and what it is for the car industry means much more than what iPhone is and was for smartphones. I am probably biased towards recognizing much more of Musk's contribution to our evolution as a species because I like his futuristic ideas, but that's how I see him. This man is really working hard to make our planet cleaner and every piece of tech that he works on more efficient and environmentally friendly. If he would work on a smartphone I am sure that it would beat iPhone in both performance and price so, yes I am voting for Elon, as a sort of speak.
Musk started with PayPal, but was only one of a team. Jobs was the key driver of Apple.
Jobs broke serious ground. Musk just orchestrated the design of an electric car and rocket company - nothing THAT innovative in and of itself.
Difficult question because we are talking about two geniuses, one that stood out for thinking and helping to create things that no one would have imagined before, and another that is currently one of the most visionary minds of today.
But without a doubt I think Elon Musk could overcome it especially because he has more time to do it, and because his ideas cover different technological branches, while Jobs focused on just one technological branch that finally managed to revolutionize.
I think Elon Musk has contributed match more to the innovative world. I don't think Apple Steve Jobs or Apple have made any real innovations. They just almost perfected their consumer electronics and made it very recognizable on the market.
I think that Elon Musk is even more emblematic than Steve Jobs, he has managed to impose himself in space by being a key player with SpaceX, in payment with Paypal, and now in the cars he sells as iPhone, it has passed 276 000 copies in 3 days. He is phenomenal.
