Apple's Steve Jobs named most influential in T3 Tech 100

Apple's main man is named the most influential person in tech as T3 reveals the T3 Tech 100 for 2010.

Apple chief Steve Jobs has pipped rivals at Microsoft and Google to the coveted top spot in the annual T3 Tech 100  - the definitive list of the most influential people in tech.

Riding high on the success of the iPad and iPhone 4, T3's panel of expert judges felt that Jobs “embodies Apple, propelling the company forward as the instigator and first true genius of the tech lifestyle age.”

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer came second, thanks largely to Windows 7, while the Google trinity of Eric Schmidt, Larry Page and Sergey Brin shared third. Terry Gou, chairman and president of iPhone manufacturers Foxconn, was fourth and CEO of Intel Paul Otellini was fifth. Heads of Facebook, LG, Samsung and Nintendo also made the Top 10.

The T3 Tech 100 lists the most influential people in the technology world, and is compiled by a panel of leading technology experts and journalists, including the BBC’s technology correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones and the Evening Standard’s Mark Prigg.

Luke Peters, T3 magazine’s editor said; “Apple may have had a horror story with ‘Antennagate’ but, in our mind, there’s no doubt how Steve Jobs’ continued vision is shaping the mainstream’s outlook regarding how consumer technology looks, works and how it defines them."

The full T3 Tech 100 features in the November issue of T3, on sale Thursday, 16 September – with a coverprice of £4.25 and on the special T3 Tech 100 microsite at http://www.t3.com/tech100
