To the Apple faithful he is already a saint but to the rest of the world he is known simply as Steve Jobs.
But that could have been different had the Apple CEO accepted an invitation to speak at a British Labour Party event.
The English newspaper the Telegraph reports that Steve Jobs could have been Sir Steve Jobs but then British Prime Minister Gordon Brown nixed the idea because of Jobs' earlier refusal to speak.
Apple was said to have been involved with the process and had pushed the idea to the final stages before Brown reportedly refused to allow it to happen, although a spokeswoman for Brown denied the report.
The title would have added a little extra spice to any introduction Jobs might get if he decides to attend Apple's rumored iPad 2 press conference on Wednesday.
