Steve Jobs and Apple appeared in an extraordinary number of 2009’s “Best of” lists

Our favorite: “There’s an app for that,” the Yale Book of Quotations‘ No. 3 quote of the 2009, right before Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie” and after Captain Sully Sullenberger’s “We’re going to be in the Hudson.”

Some other citations…

Those are the Apple (AAPL) year-end superlatives we’ve collected. If you spot any more before the ball drops in Times Square, let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
