Sir Steve Jobs, i mean Steve Jobs was almost knighted by the Queen of England but stopped due to the British Prime Minister Gordon Brown in 2009, according to a report by the Telegraph.
The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown refused to knight Steve Jobs because he turned down an invitation to speak at the Labour Party conference, a former senior Labour MP told the Telegraph.
Sir Steve Jobs has brought a revolution in the technology industry with his legendary products such as the iPhone, iPod, iPad. These products have unleashed a new breed of technology, even the British Prime Minister recognizes the effort done by Steve Jobs as he said “No other CEO has consistently shown such a commitment.”
“Apple has been the only major global company to create stunning consumer products because it has always taken design as the key component of everything it has produced” the ex premier said.
Apple was aware of the “knight-hood” proposal and it was in its final stages but later got rejected by Downing Street.
