Unique and inspiring leader of our generation

Steve leads his industry with creativity, energy and courage. He keeps creating new products and generating new ideas, eventhough he is already very wealthy and probably doesn't need the additional income. Computing and telecommunication is so much more fun with his company Apple intensifying competition with new products such as i-tune, touch phone and tablets.
