Steve Jobs Makes Time's Person of the Year List

Steve Jobs Makes Time's Person of the Year List

by , 6:50 PM EST, November 21st, 2005

Time Magazine announced its 2006 Person of the Year nominees on Monday, and Apple Computer CEO, Steve Jobs, is on the list. Time selects a person or group of people each year that most affected our lives, and embody what was important about the year.

Steve Jobs was nominated because of the innovative changes he has made to the entertainment industry through the iPod and the iTunes Music Store (iTMS).

This year saw explosive growth in podcasting, the introduction of video downloads at the iTMS, the iPod nano, video capable iPods, and the G5 iMac with Front Row. Each technology has touched some part of the entertainment industry, ranging from audio to video.

Other nominations include Bill and Melinda Gates, J.K. Rowling, Condoleezza Rice, Bono, George W. Bush, Pope Benedict XVI, The Google Guys, Rick Warren, Valerie Plame, Mother Nature, and Lance Armstrong.

Last year's choice for Person of the Year was U.S. President George W. Bush.

If Mr. Jobs is voted Person of the Year, he will join the ranks of New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, former President Bill Clinton, AIDs researcher David Ho, and many more.
