Jonathan Ive has made the 2013 TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

Here's what Bono had to say about the 46 year old Apple SVP.

-----
Jony Ive is himself classic Apple. Brushed steel, polished glass hardware, complicated software honed to simplicity. His genius is not just his ability to see what others cannot but also how he applies it. To watch him with his workmates in the holy of holies, Apple’s design lab, or on a night out is to observe a very rare esprit de corps. They love their boss, and he loves them. What the competitors don’t seem to understand is you cannot get people this smart to work this hard just for money. Jony is Obi-Wan. His team are Jedi whose nobility depends on the pursuit of greatness over profit, believing the latter will always follow the former, stubbornly passing up near-term good opportunities to pursue great ones in the distance. Jony’s values happen to add value — emotional and financial. It takes a unique alchemy of form and function for millions of people to feel so passionately about the robot in their pocket.

Are you guys for real?!? - April 19, 2013 at 2:11am
Come on, why don't you losers build an f'ing shrine to this guy, so you can get in your favourite position (on your knees, homos!) in front of it? I use Apple and have since the first Mac, but iPhone and Mac being design icons? Nope. iPhone: uncomfortable to hold, heats the crap out of your ear on a long phone call, etc. etc. etc. MacBook Pro, with it's razor sharp edges, an ergonomic nightmare. Apple is all about form over function these days. So let's just agree that it's good stuff, and perhaps better than the rest, but let's stop with this glorification, ok?

I remember when I was mad at people for having apple products. I realized it was me that couldn't afford them. I got a good job as a female stripper and now I have all apple products ;). ...... Maybe one day u also will get a apple iphone or MacBook. Or maybe not. Soooooo stop being a crybaby. And let people be happy at who the choose to like in life.....!!!!!!

If you can't make it work right make it look good. His "designs" are not for normal people , unusable in real world, suitable for crazy snobs who can afford to slip phone out of hands few times a week not to mention they finished special course on how to hold iphone so antena works

It's very unfortunate that you have so much anger inside. You read a post of someone getting an award, then you read all the comments, then feel the need to spew this bullshit... Yes we are for real asshole, we are apple fans, this is an apple news site... Of course we will be happy about this. If you hate apple and the iPhone so much, why r u on an apple news site???? Lol, keep on being a dick, keep calm and chive on

Not only is he the best. He is a master. A leader. Very easily spoken. Never a bad thing to say to or about any one. He's a craftsman. Ever since iMac started we have seen his presence. We hope for many more years of mr Johnny. Thank u.

Hope to see more of your genius in the upcoming iOS. And iPhone. Don't just add a new button and tell me it's been completely redesigned!!!!
