    Show me why Steve Jobs deserves to be knighted before calling me a MS Fanboy, just because he sells Apple products better than anyone else so far? Even if OSX do become so popular that it over takes MS (good luck on that), Steve is not there why is he being credited for stuff he did not do?
    You sound more like Apple fanboy than I am a MS fanboy.

    You can be knighted but you don't get the title "Sir"
    Oooooh. I never knew or cared how that worked. But it's interesting. So they don't give knights huge... tracts of land?

    Microsoft Fanbois, gotta love 'em both.
    Gotta love the grammar police. It's iOS and OSX.

    Jobs could be knighted for his contribution to technology. He and Bill both are geniuses.

    no one deserves a knight hood because its bull turd, the british empire is gone were now run by a coalition (which isn't democracy) and the Queen/Royal family are just for American tourists

    I don't think Steve cares about being knighted when he already thinks he is God.

    Truth is this little island doesn't need anyone or any nation. We are small but unfortunately full of arse kissing knobs.

    Steve I wish you well but the offer of a knighthood is nothing but bull crap politics.

    I personally love Apple products but why would that be deserved of a knighthood???
    Lol I was joking about Knighting peeps...relax. Jobs deserves a Knighthood for changing the world of technology.

    If anyone is to be knighted it's 100% not Job's, he hasnt created any technology, it's all the think tanks at Apple that design and other companies that make the technology.
    All Job's does is sell it and make all you sheep think he done it all by him self, he's good with words that's all.

    But Bill Gates performs a great deal of humanitarian services. Steve Jobs is merely an extremely successful businessman

    what? Apple is the company name.

    The answer to your question is Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak, without him we would have nothing.

    Wow! You're trying to correct people? Here's what you should have posted...

    Firstly; it is "his products ARE used," not "IS used."
    Secondly; give it time. iOS and OSX market-shares are increasing at such a rapid rate, that you may eat those words, far sooner than you think.

    You had over twenty grammatical errors in that post. You now look like a tool. Don't try to police, when you have no badge.
