    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

    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.
