Steve Jobs And Frank Lloyd Wright

a: Steve jobs ~
b: Frank LLoyd Wright

What: The unifying points: They both micro-managed the forms. Jobs controlled all the design elements like Wright. Wright designed his houses as a whole, the yard, the house, the windows, the furniture, the plates on the dinner room table and the dress that the host was supposed to wear. All the elements were all under his control. You see the same type of design wholeness with the Apple products. Apple designs the whole system and controls the technical and aesthetics of every product they make. So were these guys great systematic thinkers, control freaks or both?
