A successful digital media device, popular movies from Pixar Animation, and simultaneously fighting cancer. Those were the reason behind Apple Computer Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs being named the London Sunday Times Business Person of 2004.
The Sunday Times wrote: "Jobs?s power in the entertainment industry made him a key player in another of the biggest business stories of the year ? the attempt to unseat Michael Eisner as chief executive of Walt Disney. Jobs?s decision last January to terminate discussions to renew Pixar?s distribution deal with Disney was the catalyst for Eisner?s bruising battle with his shareholders."
Editors called what Mr. Jobs has done in 2004 as a "remarkable achievement."
