Apple CEO Steve Jobs has once again landed on the Time 100 list. This year he was included in the Builders & Titans category and was lauded for the innovative products Apple makes.
"So far this year he has unveiled the iPhone, which has every other cell-phone maker scrambling to get a glimpse of Appleis taillights, and Apple TV, a gutsy grab for the living-room media center. Leopard, a major update to Appleis OS X operating system, is due in October," Lev Grossman writes for Time. "Meanwhile, Jobs sold his 100 millionth iPod this year, second-quarter Macintosh sales were up 36%, and Apple is showing remarkable financial vitality (and has weathered its stock-options dustup). So far, so cool."
