>Steve Jobs Named Financial Times Person of the Year 2010


The Financial Times has announced Apple CEO Steve Jobs,the co-founder and chief executive officer of Apple  as person of the year for 2010.
Financial Times touches on other possible candidates for the “person of the year” title. “When Steven Paul Jobs first hit the headlines, he was younger even than Mark Zuckerberg is now. Now, three decades on, he has secured his place in the foremost ranks of the West Coast tech titans who have done so much to shape the world around the turn of the millennium. Long-time nemesis Bill Gates may be richer and, at his peak, arguably exerted greater sway, thanks to his monopoly over the world’s PC software. But the Microsoft co-founder has left the stage to devote his life and fortune to good works. It is Mr Jobs who now holds the spotlight,” explains FT.

Steve Jobs: No USB 3 any time soon

Apple has a mixed record when it comes to adopting industry standards. For example, the company was the first OEM to install USB and Firewire on its desktop machines but has yet to include HDMI connectivity in its laptop line; the recently refreshed Mac Mini line were the first Apple products to sport an HDMI output. The optimist in you might be hoping that Apple is holding off in favor of Intel’s upcoming Light Peak technology. Light Peak will feature an optical cable with a bandwidth of 10Gb/s (that’s gigabits) and will be a universal replacement for SCSI, SATA, USB, FireWire, PCI Express and HDMI.
