Steve Jobs Helped Save Nintendo

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Apple's former CEO and visionary, Steve Jobs, leaves behind an unmatched legacy that forever changed the world. His numerous achievements, including the iPod, iPhone and iPad not only catapulted the company into superstardom, but also influenced numerous hardware and software manufacturers, including Motorola and Samsung.

Jobs' artistic genius may have even rescued Nintendo, albeit indirectly.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm not convinced he "saved" Nintendo but his ideas did do a great amount of inspiring. His ideas inspired nearly all manufacturers out there although many big names don't like to admit it.

I don't know about you but I'm certainly not looking for design when I purchase a gaming system. I purchased the "fat DS" on day one hehe. There was really nothing wrong with it in terms of design at the time. It looked so much better than the Gameboy Advanced which was its predecessor.

The problem with this is there where already Ipods on the market before Apple.

The only reason why Apple are big is the store, if there wasn't a store music at the time not many people would have bothered as creative had the best MP3 players where you could hook in a 500gig HD and go from there, to take your music and transport files as well.

there were no iPods before apple. there were only mp3 players ;)

however, its important to know that mp3 players before iPod is actually a hard disk with 3.5 jack input! Its as huge as portable cd player, not sport friendly, and definitely not pocket friendly. I think in case of mp3 players booming, Apple should have all the credit.

The real innovation was iTunes, not the player.

this blind love for Apple is getting out of hand. NO...Steve Jobs and Apple are NOT the only company in the world that innovates or has style.
nor have they invented either...

I think nintendo helped out apple more.

When the DS was first released with touch screen. No other mainstream product had the confidence of using touchscrren because they thought the interface would be unresponsive and cumbersume. Nintendo engineers broke that myth and now eveyone else is using it. Without nintendo there would not be ipod touch or ipad
