Many people said that no leader could replace the late Steve Jobs, but it would appear that he is finally getting some recognition from the masses. Time Magazine gave their ‘Person of the year’ to US President Barack Obama, but Apple CEO Tim Cook claimed second runner up place.
The first runner up was Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani student activist who survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban. Third and fourth runner-ups are Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi and Italian physicist Fabiola Gianotti.
As a runner up Cook gets to be on one of the covers, which we have included in this article. There is also an indepth profile of the man inside the magazine. It was written by Lev Grossman who details Cook as ‘The Technologist’.
One of the comments about Cook is fascinating. Grossman says “He doesn’t look like Jobs, he looks like something Jobs would have made. And like an Apple product, Cook runs smooth and fast.”
Kitguru says: Cook getting recognition on his own merits. He will be a happy man.
