In a new survey released today, Fortune has chosen Apple CEO Steve Jobs as the smartest CEO in tech. The survey drew upon 100 advisers and experts for nominations in ten different categories, who were then evaluated based on their perceived intelligence as well as their impact over recent timeframes.
Fortune points to the incredible success of Apple since Jobs' 1997 return to the company, seeing its market capitalization rise to $250 billion as the company changes industry after industry.
Rocking one industry could be luck, but upending four? That's smart.
He is a visionary, a micromanager, and a showman who creates such anticipation around new products that their releases are veritable holidays. And Jobs is a pop culture icon like no other business executive: An episode of The Simpsons a few years ago featured a Jobs-like character named Steve Mobs.
The profile also points to his "dictator-like control" that has resulted in the eschewing of Adobe's Flash technology while also driving Apple's products to possess the "elegance" of refined design the company is so famous for.
Danny, 09 Jul 2010Hi i got my iphone 4 on wednesday and i must say ive had NO signal issues or spots on my scree... moreNow here is a genuine user who is willing to share his experience so far but all the haters want is to hate. So there's been a few cries about Signal Drops, mind you humans have different skin types, some have sweaty palms while others have dry palms, that's probably gonna contribute to the problem, With the N97 dropped calls were apart of everyday phone usage. All these reported problems "minor for that matter" were up to 10x worse with the N97. My N97 got swapped 5 times and on the sixth I demanded a different phone hence am rocking the HTC Desire, a bloody good move to make I'd say.
But look sometimes it's nice to let the people with real experience of a particular phone have their say so that others looking for constructive criticism and reviews can do so with having to go through all this nonsense about the Iphone and Steve Jobs. It's Steve's Job to sell the phone and my God does he do it well.
Personally I try not to criticize phones I have never used, when doing so I always try and refer to the N97 because I do believe whole heartedly that the phone is the worst ever, I used it for six months and would never recommend it to anyone not even my worst enemy.
Its the best phone as it comes with two free apple logo stickers inside my box (RRP 9.99 each! omg free) I put on our two cars!! Yeah now people behind us know we use and have apples when driving. Its the best!!!

The only app worth a mention on OVI is GRAVITY.

Thanks George.. I agree with you. This is a forum for the iPhone.. Love it or hate. Nothing should be personal.

Also..Big Word from you.. Please.. Look it up.. Under the definition you will see your picture.. Not the Pedophile.. But the boy taking it from behind..

Anonymous, 09 Jul 2010I've seen the Nokia N9 in action. If you think that the N8 is good or any of the other mobiles... moreYeah the Aava that looks so much like the Iphone running Meego.
Iphone came along and showed all other manufacturers how to make a touch screen mobile phone remember that! If it were left up to Nokia, the N97 would have been considered cutting edge technology. Pay homage folks this phone even if not the greatest has helped pave the way for a much needed competitive environment.
