Steve Jobs was named a posthumous Grammy winner Wednesday, getting a nod from The Recording Academy as a recipient of the Trustees Award.

In a news release, The Recording Academy highlighted Jobs’s contributions to the music industry.



(Szabolcs Dudas/PR NEWSWIRE/GRAPHISOFT) – Commissioned by GRAPHISOFT Founder and Chairman of the Board, Gabor Bojar, the statue is the first in the world honoring the late founder of Apple, who passed away on Oct. 5.


 Here are some of the tech pioneers and leaders who died this year.

“As former CEO and co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books.” the news release said. “A creative visionary, Jobs’ innovations such as the iPod and its counterpart, the online iTunes store, revolutionized the industry and how music was distributed and purchased.”

Apple itself was a Technical Grammy recipient in 2002 because of its technological contributions to the recording industry.

Jobs, who died in October at the age of 56, was also named as Barbara Walters’s “Most Fascinating Person” for 2011 and was also commemorated with a bronze statue in Hungary. The statue, unveiled Wednesday, was commissioned by the tech company Graphisoft, which said in a news release that it has a relationship with Apple and Jobs dating back to the 1980s.

We surely have evolved as a species….can’t wait until we just plug ourselves into the net, directly for stimulation.

From an illustrated by Brett Jordan (check site – nice Etch-a-Sketch!!) in the graphic shown – things have also changed at Apple.

Why almost 10 years ago we were ready to be controlled by the imbecilic moron as he lead us toward the great depression, and all the lies and half-truths that lead to so many lives lost.

(sorry – don’t want to get up on that soap box.  these are happy times now — I see a beautiful green field, knee high grass blowing in the breeze….)

What a difference – BTW the 2nd generation, well maybe third – original Mac -> Mac SE -> iMac 3G, held the title, IMHO, as one ugly creature until they came up with the iMac G4 – Oh! can you say UGLY!  Wow, whom ever design that monstrosity must have just left design school.
