“Newsweek”: Steve Jobs is “like Harry Potter, a wizard amongst muggles”

In its most recent issue, Newsweek has published a new article comparing former Apple CEO Steve Jobs to Harry Potter. Jobs stepped down from Apple last week.

“Steve Jobs is a wizard among muggles, says his one-time biographer and object of ire Alan Deutschman.

“Like the fictional Harry Potter, he was a misfit, raised by adoptive parents, who ultimately discovered that he was a wizard among muggles,” writes Deutschman in Newsweek.

He also makes the same claim of mugglehood in Steve’s desire to “be at an elite school and obtain its validation that he was indeed a wizard rather than a muggle.”

Do you agree with their comparison to the boy wizard?
