Steve Jobs to receive posthumous Grammy

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is to receive a posthumous Grammy award for his technological innovations in the arts.

Jobs is among a dozen people, music groups or companies receiving honorary awards on February 11, the day before the Grammys. He died of cancer in October.

The Grammys are honouring Jobs with one of the group's Trustees Awards, citing the late Apple boss's advancements which "transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books".

Grammy organisers called him a "creative visionary" for Apple innovations that include the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

Others receiving honorary awards the day before the Grammys include Diana Ross, the Allman Brothers, Glen Campbell, Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Jones, the Memphis Horns and recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder.
