Tech Moguls Top 'The Vanity Fair 100' List

Tech Moguls Top 'The Vanity Fair 100' List

Vanity Fair has put Rupert Murdoch, Steve Jobs and the Google twins at the very top of their 100 List for 2007, proving once again that geek is chic and powerful.

Printed in the October edition of Vanity Fair (you know the one with Nicole Kidman looking like an elegant, but saucy sailor on the cover?) the Top 100 List praises the four for their successes in the past year, notably Murdoch's acquisition of the The Wall Street Journal, Jobs's release of the iPhone and the Google twins' ever growing company.

Here's more:

The sinking stock market hasn't slowed down Rupert Murdoch, who showed the world some old-media love, picking up The Wall Street Journal... As breathlessly awaited as Harry Potter, the deliciously beautiful iPhone dropped calls but still drove up Steve Jobs's net worth by $200 million.

While Murdoch's geek status is questionable, we must remember that he does own Myspace, which like it or not has changed the way most kids communicate. Jobs and the twins are also deserving of their spots, with the release of the "best iPods ever" and keeping us going back to Google search after search. My question is, where are all the geeky ladies hiding? The only woman to take the top 10 was Melinda Gates, who shares the spot with her husband, Bill Gates. Oprah Winfrey came in at number 14.
