What are some of the ideas that Steve Jobs opposed and that Apple ended up making?

One I know for sure was the idea of ​​third-party developers creating apps for the iPhone. It is explicitly mentioned in Isaacson's new biography:

Apple board member Art Levinson told Isaacson that he called Jobs "a half dozen times to push for the potential of applications," but, according to Isaacson, "Jobs initially dropped the discussion, in part because he felt his team didn't have the bandwidth to figure out all the complexities that would go into policing third-party application developers. "

One idea Steve Jobs opposed was for Apple to make the iPod / iTunes compatible with Windows:

Jobs was very resistant to the idea. At one point, he said that Windows users could use the iPod "on my corpse." After further convincing, Jobs gave up:

"To hell," he said at a meeting where he was shown the analysis. "I'm sick of listening to you assholes. Go do whatever you want."
