Fortune magazine puts Apple boss top of the pile '50 smartest people in tech' listing

Steve Jobs tops tech’s smartest list

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been named the smartest person in the tech industry by Fortune magazine.

According to the publication, the judging criteria was based on ‘an alchemy of intellect, ambition, and that uncanny ability to peer around corners.’

The full listing included CEOs, designers, analysts, and a mysterious group of people termed ‘hybrids’.

Jobs’ listing reads: "His dictator-like control can cause havoc for partners: Jobs, 55, has decided, for example, that Apple products won’t support Adobe Flash, the code most video-heavy websites depend on, leading designers to switch to new tools. But Jobs’ vision is also what gives these devices their elegance, causing consumers’ hearts to flutter."
