TIME magazine just published a list of the 20 most influential Americans of all time. Yes I said of all time, and among those listed are folks like George Washington, Albert Einstein, and some guy who built the iDevice that you love so much, namely; Steve Jobs.

The Magazine featured Jobs on it’s cover an amazing 8 times for differing reasons but was he worth this very high honor? An excerpt from the article is below:

By 1997 Apple was on the skids, a victim of executives who lacked Jobs’ vision. He returned to his former company, retooled it — and commenced the greatest comeback in business history, introducing a clutch of breakthrough products that created a new digital landscape: the iPod, the iTunes store, the iPhone, the iPad. Apple’s retail outlets became the highest-grossing stores in the world, and as of 2012, Apple was the world’s most valuable company.

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.

Here is the list of some of the men on the list – not so sure Steve should be there.

  • George Washington
  • Thomas Jefferson
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Alexander G. Bell
  • Thomas Edison
  • Henry Ford
  • Wright Brothers
  • Albert Einstein
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • Louis Armstrong
  • Martin Luther King Jr.
  • Steve Jobs
