Jobs makes Time Most Infuential Americans of All Time list

updated 12:21 pm EDT, Thu July 26, 2012

Magazine ranks Jobs next to Einstein, Jefferson, MLK Jr.

Time Magazine is including Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in a new ranking of who it considers the 20 most influential Americans of all time. Jobs' inclusion is unusual in some respects, since it also includes more historically famous people like Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, and the Wright brothers. It does however include other business magnates, namely Henry Ford and Thomas Edison.

"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 magazine writes.
