Steve Jobs Among the TIME 100

In a special issue of TIME magazine, 100 personalities and ideas are profiled. Among them is Apple's CEO:

The Steve Jobs way

Jobs co-founded Apple Computer with Steve Wozniak in 1976, and a year later launched the Apple II -- the first desktop computer to have a built-in keyboard, built-in sound and could produce color graphics when hooked to a color television.

He was also the force behind the Macintosh, another of Apple's groundbreaking personal computers, only to be ousted from the company in an in-house power struggle in 1985.

But Jobs returned to Apple in late 1996, and began the process that restored the company to profitability.

There are a few other people I'll write about either this weekend or early next week.
