Why is Steve Jobs No 1?

When Apple founder Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th, the worldwide outpouring of emotion befitted the death of a spiritual leader. But in the midst of mourning, people wondered, “Who is the next Steve Jobs?” Some chose Mark Zuckerberg as the heir apparent, while others homed in on Google’s Larry Page. But the truth is, there is no “next Steve Jobs.” There can’t be. Jobs was around when the world was changing faster than ever before, and he created the tools to help us keep up. His singular vision revolutionized the way we do, well, everything. Remember the first time you opened a MacBook or spun the iPod’s wheel, or the feeling you got when you held your first iPhone? It felt like you were holding a piece of the future. We were the ones around when Steve Jobs, like Thomas Edison and Henry Ford before him, changed the world. Thank you, Steve Jobs, for teaching us all how to think different.

Why is SEAL Team Six no 2?

Chances are we’ll never know the two dozen names and faces of the men who made up U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six, the elite group of top secret black operatives who stormed a fortressed compound in Pakistan one dark May morning and left about 45 minutes later with the body of Osama bin Laden. That’s probably because, according to the U.S. Navy, there is no Team Six. These real-life superheroes are sworn to secrecy thanks to the sensitive nature of their missions, some of which could be going on as you’re reading this. Just remember: The next time you pass a chiseled, square-jawed, broad-shouldered, stoic man who walks like he has nothing to lose, there’s a small chance he’s the one who put a bullet in bin Laden’s head.

Why is Larry Page no 3?

Now that Steve Jobs is gone, the tech world is in search of a fellow visionary to replace him as the figurehead of innovation. Our vote is for Larry Page, the 38-year-old cofounder and newly appointed CEO of Google. Though his first year as Google’s chief has been a rocky one -- the company was forced to pay $500 million for allowing ads from illegal online pharmacies -- Google is still the 11th biggest U.S. company in terms of stock market value. And with Google TV on the way and a monumental purchase of Motorola, Google’s future is as bright as ever. And if Page ever gets lost along the way, there’s always Google Maps.

Why is Warren Buffett no 4?

The U.S. economy is in turmoil. Just don’t tell that to Warren Buffett. The world’s most famous investor just keeps making money despite the weak global market. But what separates Buffett from most billionaires is his philanthropic nature. We say "most" because Buffett -- who is the world’s third richest man -- has teamed up with its second richest, Bill Gates, to form the Giving Pledge, an initiative that sees the world’s wealthiest individuals give away at least half their fortunes. And, yes, he talks the talk -- like in his New York Times article "Stop Coddling the Super-Rich" -- but Buffett walks the walk too. He took his argument to Congress, and his son, Howard Buffett, went on the record defending the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Why is Kanye West No 5?

The night that Kanye West almost destroyed his career by grabbing the mic from a 19-year-old girl on one of the world’s grandest stages seems like ages ago, doesn’t it? Or more specifically, two albums ago. First, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, West’s magnum opus, revealed the artist in all his blowhard splendor and was hailed an instant genre classic (but what genre?). Then the self-proclaimed douchebag holed up in some mansion with his kinda famous, kinda talented friend and mentor Jay-Z to drop Watch the Throne, one of the most secretive, epic, grandiose rap albums of 2011 -- maybe ever. After the year he’s had, it’s never been clearer that Kanye West is king, and we are his loyal subjects.

Why is Mohamed Bouazizi no 6?

It was the slap in the face that was heard around the world -- or the slap that changed the world, rather. When Faida Hamdy, a 45-year-old municipal inspector in Sidi Bouzid, a Tunisian city, approached the cart of Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26-year-old fruit vendor, she could not have known that what was about to transpire would be the catalyst for some of the biggest revolutions since the fall of Communism. After claiming that he was disrespected, slapped across the face and embarrassed by Ms. Hamdy, Bouazizi set himself on fire in protest, igniting a country long stifled by an oppressive regime. After two weeks of protests, Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali stepped down. The spirit of revolution moved beyond the Tunisian border, and sparked what has since been dubbed Arab Spring.

Why is Prince William no 7?

Every girl dreams of one day finding and marrying her Prince Charming. But isn’t that just a silly make-believe notion of the perfect man, one who exists only in fairy tales? It sure didn’t look that way on April 29th, when the eyes of the world watched a just-married Prince William and Kate Middleton kiss not once, but twice, from Buckingham Palace’s historic balcony as the crowd below roared with approval. It was a lasting image in a life filled with them. From being held in his mother’s arms as a baby to a watching her casket go by as a teenager, Prince William has continued to handle life in the public eye with the grace and dignity befitting of a king. Catherine, you’re one lucky girl.
