Steve Jobs to receive "Lifetime Achievement in Technology" honor

Apple CEO to be honored at Vision Awards 2010

Over the weekend, exclusive Apple blog 9to5Mac discovered in a local Beverly Hills, California newspaper that Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs will receive the "Lifetime Achievement in Technology" honor at the 40th anniversary Visions Awards on September 23rd. Industry speculation merits the award recognition towards his vision to achieve a touchscreen interface with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad that can read onscreen text and verbally describe items underneath a person's finger.

While this surprising announcement may be a tough pill for some to swallow (our beloved Nick Farrell included), this is not the first time Jobs has received a recent prestigious honor. In November 2009, the Apple co-founder was given the title "CEO of the Decade" by Fortune Magazine and was successively named "World's Most Valuable CEO" by Barrons in March 2010. In the same month, Apple as a company was declared "World's Most Admired Company" by Fortune Magazine editors. Jobs also landed the top position on Fortune's July 2010 survey report "The 50 Smartest People in Tech" as the smartest CEO in the industry.

Apple has been on Fortune's top list for the third consecutive year, and the Time Warner-owned global business magazine has consistently named Steve Jobs as their most valuable player for quite some time. Nevertheless, the Vision Awards in Beverly Hills grant recognition to "pioneering visionaries" in the field of music, movies, TV, technology, medical research and leadership. We look forward to hearing the award panel's stringent qualification requirements for justifying Steve Jobs' latest personal achievement.

The awards will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2010 at the Beverly Hilton.

how disgusting.expect a "LAIT Limited Edition iPhone", for a reasonable price of £5k.

The guy deserves it, despite what the crazy Apple-haters think on this site, the iPhone was a game changer. It's pretty clear to see.

uh oh! heresy on the site! Prepare to have your comment disliked by the "intelligent", all knowing masses who are really are parallel to any Apple fanboy. Remember Microsoft fantrolls (or just one sided, biased folks to make it general), the first step is to admit that you're just as bad as the Apple fantrolls.

The Apple-haters are probably worse than 99% of the Apple fanboys. I can't seem to decide who is less grounded in reality.

Quoting Naterm:

Yes, I agree with the iPhone. But that was when the "first" iPhone releases. Until now, nothing seem to surpass what the first gen iPhone did well which is apps. Without Apps Developer, the iPhone is just another boring Symbian. I always fall with the wind and currently, iOS is not the best but among the best. Fanboy articles is sickening considering some of the critic(s) never use the opposition's products.

Err, no. I don't consider Symbian to be anywhere near iOS and pretty much everyone agrees on that. When it comes to intuitiveness/ease of use nothing touches iOS. Nothing yet works better on touch screen phones, though Android is definitely getting better. The Appstore obviously made the iPhone a much better product, but from a useability standpoint it was the best smartphone when it launched even if it's connectivity lagged behind.

Apple rarely does something first, but they usually do it best. Which, honestly, matters a lot more if you're in the business of well...business. Monetizing good ideas with good products is what you want to do. Coming up with good ideas doesn't bring in earnings.

Should read "Lifetime Achievment for Marketing"

How else can you explain wanting something that no one new they needed?
