(Newser) – Guess what Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Steve Jobs have in common? All are Grammy Award winners. Yes, really. For his revolutionary work with entertainment technology, Steve Jobs will be awarded a posthumous Grammy in February, the Huffington Post reports. The Apple founder will receive the Trustees Award because he "helped create products and technology that transformed the way we consume music, TV, movies, and books," said the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in a press release that goes on to specifically tout the iPod and the iTunes store. The Washington Post notes that Apple won a Technical Grammy in 2002. (Read more Grammy Awards stories.)
