Good question. The dollar amounts are certainly not in order. Jobs is listed at #2, but he's far below that in dollar terms.

(The list was compiled in terms of influence, not total worth.) :cool:
Edit:They say: “If Bill Gates had a dime for every time Windows crashes... Oh, wait a minute, he already does.” - Unknown. ;) I love that little comment from the article :D

"Best known for: Losing the war for home computers but winning the battle for hearts and minds: no one has ever rhapsodised about how cool and beautiful Microsoft products are."

Jobs is known for so much more than Apple's small market share. It should have said something like this. "Best known for: Revolutionizing the way people buy and listen to music."

Oh, and by the way, it's spelled rhapsodized... :rolleyes:

That could depend on the English or American spelling ;) :confused:

But probably 75% + of those reading it are American.
