They should have made B.O. the "person" of the year.. Then they could have covered the Occutards and our favorite hippy Steve, bless his heart.

As much as I hate the occupy protestors...I still prefer them over Steve Jobs.
What did Steve Jobs do? He invented a phone, spearheaded the legal campaign against everyone who wasn't Apple (which bloated the number of lawyers we have and clogged the justice system on an international level), and he died of cancer.
I have a 28 year old friend who is dying of cancer and he isn't Person of the Year. Steve Jobs is not that important in the grand scheme of things. If you think Steve Jobs liked any of you people...you would be dead wrong...I doubt he would spit on you if you were on fire...for fear of some legal retaliation for the spitting.
But we all know Apple has a legal team bigger than the US Military so I guess in the end he would be fine.

SERIOUSLY? The Mother F-in Protestor? The average protestor doesn't have a clue as to what they are protesting or how to actually make real changes in the world? I mean really? You've got to be kidding me TIME, I remember when you were a reputable magazine, what happened? Apparently some "occupy" bums hung out at your headquarters long enough that people starting believing they actually worked there... So, Not Cool!! I guess I am just jealous that I have a real job and take my responsibilities in life seriously which doesn't allow me to go camping and create messes for other people to clean up when I get bored. SERIOUSLY? The Mother F-in Protestor?

Steve Jobs did not do much in the past year, that said I think he should be "Person of the Decade" for how much he has changed the digital and electronic theater.
Also, I put very little stock in the Man of the Year because of some of the people they've chosen in the past.
Adolf Hitler - 1938
Joseph Stalin - 1939 / 1942
Ayatollah Khomeini - 1979
There are others but none as glaringly bad.

Seriously? The Mother F-in' Protestor? I mean REALLY? The majority of these bums don't even know what they are protesting or how to actually go about making changes in the world. I remember when TIME magazine use to be a reputable magazine, what happened? My guess is a bunch of these "occupy" bums hung out so long at their headquarters that TIME employees started believing they actually worked there. What a JOKE!! I guess I am just jealous that I have a real job and take my responsibilities seriously thus making it unrealistic to go camping and make messesfor others to clean up whenever I get bored...

Its scary that in 2011, people are still so narrow minded and ignorant.

This thread is filled with hilarity. People are quick to assume that because they have a job, live in a decent neighborhood and are jacked into their f'in iPhones and Facebook all day everything is cool. Part of the reason the country is going to sh*t and laws taking away our freedom and free speech are being passed left, right and center. Wake up folks, I assure you the grass is not greener. The basic principles America was built on are being trampled on and people have the nerve to talk down on those who fight for it and would rather see their hero as "Person of the Year" for some magazine. Lol.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Seriously? The occupy protestors beat jobs? I honestly am not upset about jobs not bein the man but seriously? This is the dumbest **** I've ever heard. Those hippie protestors need to get a life or at least protest at Washington instead of wall street. If they want something done about this country, it should be Obama they talk to...

With Obama losing so many jobs in 2011- It should have been Jobs!

Good decision by Time Magazine. Yes Jobs changed the world of tech, but what has happened in the Middle East has been amazing IMHO. Democracy FTW
