This text is now purple: falcon444: Technically George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were British and Einstein was German.

George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were British in the same way Arubans are Dutch and Canadians are British.

Sid_6.7: There are countless people more influential in the course of American history than Jobs.


Do you use a computer? Mp3 player? Phone? Then you're benefiting from what Jobs achieved.

No, Apple / SJ weren't the first to make the [insert the ... of your choice], but they were the first to get it right, and that's what counts.

Bill Gates comes to mind.

No. Gates' only stroke of genius was pulling a fast one on IBM. All he (and MS) ever did since was tag along after Apple.

Also, was Einstein really "American"?

Nope.

Lsherm: doglover: cman: doglover: Albert Einstein

American as Germany.

He did become an American citizen.

Eventually. If we're going to be talking about great Americans though, I'd say Tesla did more for you and me in our daily lives than Einstein, who really didn't do much of anything outside of theoretical physics. Sure, relativity is important to satellites, but electricity itself is Tesla's gift. Much good your radio phone would be if you couldn't charge it and every tower was run on DC current.

MARCONI!

OK, not an American. But for an Italian, he did good.


Um... I'm pretty sure he didn't invent the pasta that was named after him

This is how bad the journalism is at Time Magazine: its list of "20 most influential" Americans only lists 19 people.

Also, fails to mention Neil Armstrong, whose name will probably be universally remembered a hell of a lot longer than Louis Armstrong.
