Fortune Magazine has chosen Apple’s Steve Jobs as this year’s Smartest CEO in Technology category.
No wonder he is chosen as the Smartest CEO as he recreates history with his vision and whenever he introduces a product it change rules of the game all over again. iPhone reinvented mobile devices, iPad changed tablet computing and iTunes redefined the music.
Jessi Hempel of Fortune Magazine says
He is a visionary, a micromanager, and a showman who creates such anticipation around new products that their releases are veritable holidays.
His dictator-like control can cause havoc for partners: Jobs, 55, has decided, for example, that Apple products won’t support Adobe Flash, the code most video-heavy websites depend on, leading designers to switch to new tools. But Jobs’ vision is also what gives these devices their elegance, causing consumers’ hearts to flutter.
While Steve Jobs holds the top place, Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Mitch Gold of Dendreon are at 2nd and 3rd places respectively.
