Young adults hold a remarkable amount of revere for late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, ranking Jobs as one of the greatest innovators of all time, second only to Thomas Edison.
The information was the result of the most recent Lemelson-MIT Invention Index (as reported by The Mac Observer), a yearly survey given to young adults between 16 and 25, revealing that a surprising 24% of young adults surveyed consider Jobs to be the greatest inventor of all time, while 52% chose Thomas Edison.
Results like these go a long way in showing how connected young adults are to technology, and how much influence consumer electronics, and in particular companies such as Apple, actually have in their lives.
Of course, the survey also covered a number of other areas, such as how young adult feel about technology in general, willingness to participating in training outside of traditional classrooms, and more. I highly recommend checkout out the full study!
