Steve #*%@in' Jobs
In business, only the strong survive.
Jobs founded Apple back in 1976. When Apple went public in 1980, it generated more money than any other IPO since Ford Motors (F) in 1956. Just five years later, Jobs would be asked by Apple's Board of Directors to leave the company.
But, Steve came back. Big time.
Since returning to Apple in 1996, Jobs has overseen the company's rapid expansion. Products like the iPod, iPhone, and iTunes have revolutionized the way consumers interface with entertainment and communication. In the meantime, Jobs has managed to become the largest shareholder in the Walt Disney Company (DIS) and been named the Most Powerful Businessman of 2007 in Fortune Magazine.
