    Steve Jobs as one of the greatest Sales Person I might believe, engineer? No.

    I couldn't agree more. It was only a survey done by /students/ anyways....

    LMAO! This has got to be a joke? I wouldn't argue him being of the best marketing genius' in the world but comparing Steve Jobs to Einstein is just idiotic! He shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Einstein, Edison or Newton. The education system in the UK must be worse than what we have here in the USA, and that's saying a lot.

    lol. When did Steve become an engineer? And even at that he couldn't beat out a guy that makes over-priced fans and vacuum cleaners?

    Steve may be a smart man, but he's nowhere near the likes of Newton, Einstein, and Edison. He can't be the person single-handedly responsible for Apple's innovative products and success. I'm sure there's an army of REAL engineers and advisors that present their ideas to Steve for his approval. That does not make him a genius.

    Wow. I did not even know Jobs and Gates were engineers. And I am almost certain, the Einstein was a theoretical physicist, but I might be mistaken.

    Personally, my votes would be for IKB and Tesla, different fields but both made contributions of EPIC proportions.

    Dweeb

    There are at least 100 individuals that have made a much larger and more significant contribution to the fields of engineering and physics than Jobs... I'm serious, at least 100.

    Also, here is another useless and subjective article which has nothign to do with modifying my iphone. They should change the name of the website to, "uselessapplerumorsandnewsbyessany.com"

    Maybe not, but trying to show his importance so Jobs can get knighted maybe?
    He already missed Prince William's wedding, trying to get knighted so he can make Harry's wedding.

    My guess is at least a couple thousand just this year without including anybody in history, and that is a conservative guess...

    This is what technology has done to this generation. They clearly don't know much bout what early science has done to the modern world. We pretty much hav our technology because of Einstein n Edison

    Hey Essany, just 'cause one website posted an article about this doesn't mean you have to follow suit. I really hope you will be able to differentiate between valuable, interesting news and biased, skewed jargon the next time you decide to forward other websites' articles.

    Umm those people made great feats in science that changed the way we understand our world. Steve Jobs made Macbooks and iPhones/iPod's/iPad that changed the way we watch pr0n. Does that really constitute as a greater accomplishment than the REAL geniuses?

    An Idea guy, is NOT an engineer! Granted, he has a great mind, and always was a man of vision. But give me a break here. He is no scientist, nor an engineer. So this ranking amongst top minds in science and engineering, it complete bullish**!

    To my American friends. Please know that England is in a sorry place right now. Our biggest celebs are a singer (ms cole) who can't sing and a dirty woman called katie price and a chat show host (jeremey kyle) who pulls in more viewers than most shows, prob only beaten by essex. Do not believe anything that come out of this once great nation because clearly this news by some of our smartest is clearly disturbing. Jobs is the man but "sucker please"

    Default wtf?!
    what a gross insult to einstein and the intelligence of the public. I'd like to see Jobs understand one tenth of the concepts behind the theory of relativity.
