"iKnight" Jonathan Ive---The brain behind the "i" initiated into Knighthood.

Sir Johnson Ive, Apple's senior Vice President of Industrial design poses with his knight commander medal at Buckingham palace, London, May 23 2012.
Knighthood recently received an iKnight into the Kingdom when Jonathan Ive was honoured as a Knight Commander, Order of the British Empire (KBE) in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. The "electronic Briton' was given this honour by Princess Anne. Ive, who is now entitled to call himself "Sir", told The Daily Telegraph in a rare interview that the knighthood was "incredibly humbling".
Sir Johnson Ive(as he would be called from now)  is Apple's senior vice president of industrial design, and the Briton credited with designing some of Apple's most revolutionary products -- the iPod, iPhone, iPad and iMac computer. He is the one of the big brains behind the "iworld" that we now enjoy.
The products Ive designed not only transformed Apple's fortunes but also rocked the music and entertainment industries. He has been described as the most influential Briton living in the US.
According to Si Johnson, his most important work is yet to be played out on the world stage.
"What we're working on now feels like the most important and the best work we've done... which of course I can't tell you about," he said in the Telegraph interview. So Apple users should expect probably another Technological dynamite to hit them soon. At least we know for sure that when Apple hypes, it doesn't turn out like #FB IPO.
Ive, aged 45, was born in London but now lives in San Francisco.
