Jonathan Ive, the designer of the Apple iPod has received royal honour:
British-born Mr Ive, senior vice-president of design at Apple Computer, the iPod’s Silicon Valley-based maker, was made a Commander of The Most Excellent Order of The British Empire. The honour of CBE, which ranks just below a knighthood, is awarded to individuals in recognition of their contribution and services to British interests.
More info at FT. IMO it's a bit strange that a designer of gadgets gets this kind of royal honour.
