Steve Jobs, the man who revolutionized an entire generation, will be honored with a posthumous Grammy Award the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced on Wednesday. The late Apple founder and tech icon will receive the Trustees Award for having “helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books,” the Academy said in a release. The award will specifically recognize both the iPod and iTunes for revolutionizing the industry and how music was distributed and purchased.
This a major honor and once again proves the impact Steve Jobs had on today’s culture. In addition to his posthumous Grammy, Jobs received another honor on Wednesday as a bronze statue of the tech revolutionary was unveiled in Budapest.
