His name appears on a remarkable range of inventions
If you look for patents assigned to either Apple Computer or Apple Inc., you'll get a total of 11,112 titles.
Narrow that search to patents that have Jobs listed as an inventor and you'll get more than 300.
It's is, as Miguel Helft reported in a story written for the New York Times in June, shortly before he joined Fortune as a senior writer, a remarkable list of inventions that ranges from the original Apple II and Macintosh to the glass staircases that grace a number of Apple Stores.
To accompany the story, Shan Carter -- whom Helft describes as "one of NYT's interactive design geniuses" -- created the graphic excerpted above and posted Wednesday at NYTimes.com. It displays thumbnails images of a total of 313 patents (including three from NeXT). Click on any of them and it will take you to full-size drawings and links to the actual patent filing.
It's a lovely piece of work. Click here to explore.
