Whether launching new products (such as the new iPhone 3G S) or even just being the subject of rumours of new products (such as the much discussed Apple tablet), Steve Jobs and Apple have earned the power to set the agenda in the technology industry and far beyond.

Other Agenda Setters on this year's list include Evan Williams in second place for his work on the social media wonder that is Twitter. Jimmy Wales makes his third appearance in the top 10, and Eric Schmidt of Google makes the top 10 for the sixth time.
