• Steve Jobs Honored on TIME's Most Prestigious List

    When Time magazine set out to compile a list of the "trailblazers, visionaries and cultural ambassadors" who defined a nation, one man we all know made the cut.

    So chalk up another honor for the late but eternally distinguished emperor of iDevices, Steve Jobs. The Apple co-founder has be named as one of the 20 most influential people in American history.

    And Mr. Jobs is in good company. He's up there with other names you may have heard of: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Albert Einstein.

    "There was always something of the monkish seeker about Steve Jobs," the profile from Time reads, "from his days as a part-time student at Reed College in Oregon, through his Wanderjahr in Asia to his pursuit of perfection in the dazzling products he and his colleagues created. Jobs was a visionary whose great genius was for design: he pushed and pushed to make the interface between computers and people elegant, simple and delightful. He always claimed his goal was to create products that were 'insanely great.' Mission accomplished."

    The full list of individuals honored by Time in the new issue is as follows:

    • George Washington
    • Thomas Jefferson
    • Sacagawea
    • Meriwether Lewis
    • William Clark
    • Abraham Lincoln
    • Sitting Bull
    • Alexander G. Bell
    • Thomas Edison
    • Henry Ford
    • The Wright Brothers
    • Margaret Sanger
    • Albert Einstein
    • Franklin D. Roosevelt
    • Louis Armstrong
    • James Watson
    • Martin Luther King Jr.
    • Muhammad Ali

      OMG... seriously! There are some amazing people in that list and Jobs isn't even close. Jobs in a list with MLK Jr, Einstein, Lincoln, GEORGE WASHINGTON! Jobs shares more traits with Hitler and Stalin than he does any one of those people in the list.
