He's a genius salesman. He'll get up in front of a crowd of techies and sell 4-5 year old technology with a couple tweaks and pass it off as new and revolutionary, while having everyone in the crowd kiss his feet and praise him as the messiah. That in and of itself is marketing.
And like claudius mentioned, apple consistently exercises the first-mover advantage in the market. That's huge in the tech business. It's why blackberry is now in the shitter.
