SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Steve Jobs, the founder of U.S. technology giant Apple Inc., has been awarded a Grammy posthumously, The Recording Academy said.

Jobs, who also was chief executive officer of Apple until just before he died of cancer in October, was given the academy's Trustees Award because he "helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies and books," the Academy said in a statement.

The Washington Post reported Friday Jobs has also been honored as Barbara Walters' "Most Fascinating Person" of 2011.

In Hungary, a statute of Jobs was unveiled this week. It was paid for by Graphisoft, a technology company that said it had a business relationship with Apple since the 1980s.
