It absolutely was used in that way.
You can look at the comment to which I responded as evidence.
Believe me: As much respect as I have for Steve Jobs, and it's a lot, I don't think he was infallible. No one is. Real life is more complicated than the comics I love to read. But that person implied that people were saying that Jobs was perfect. NO one was saying that.
It's a straw man argument, through and through.
