Later this month, one of the rarest specimens of hardware history will go up for auction: a working Apple-1. While most will people will never be able to afford to bid on it, this is a great opportunity to look at this beautifully ragtag machine before it disappears into someone’s collection.
There are rumors that Christian Bale would play Steve Jobs in the good Jobs movie—written by Aaron Sorkin. But who can play the awesome Steve Wozniak? He's one of my personal heroes and I'm having a hard time imagining it. So I asked him about his opinion. Here's his reply:
You're probably got some big ticket items on your Christmas shopping list—something a little pricier under the tree for those few who deserve it. But those stockings need to be stuffed too! We've got killer sub-$15 buys covered.
The iPhone may still be Wozniak's favorite phone, but that doesn't mean he thinks it'll "win" the smartphone wars. Speaking to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, he said that Android phones, with their "more features," will do better. Updated
Business cards are a little 20th century, no? So a pioneering futurist like Steve Wozniak needs to have some seriously cool ones, if he's going to have them at all. And they are—steel, photochemically etched, and really impressive.
Yes, you read that right. Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder and Gizmodo guest contributor extraordinaire, has confessed that his favorite gadget is Google's Nexus One. Oh Woz, my darling, you just broke my iPhone-powered heart.
We're kicking off our series exploring memorable gadgets from memorable people with one of the most influential tech giants: Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple. – JC
Steve Wozniak recently talked to his ole buddy and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, apparently on the phone. Woz told reporters that though he didn't ask specifically about Jobs' condition, Jobs sounded "healthy, energetic"—not sick. That's good news, as Jobs' scheduled return to Apple is imminent. [WSJ]
One of our more educated readers has chimed in on The Woz's Dancing With the Stars elimination. If he's right, let the Internet masses descend on ABC with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns.
And so it has come to pass: Steve Wozniak, gussied up and smiling like maniac, danced on national television. For like a minute and a half! Here's how it went:
The SF Chron gossip column is reporting that Woz and Kathy Griffin are engaged. If this is true, congrats! If not (as we think, since he said just last week that the two had actually never met yet), can we please stop talking about Woz and Kathy Griffin now? [SF Gate]
Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak knows how to get his name in the news. First there was the rumor of his extraordinarily creepy romance with
unfunnylady Kathy Griffin, and now we find out that he got busted going 104mph… in a Prius.
[UPDATE: I took a pass, noting inconsistencies. - B.L.]Turns out the rumor of Kathy Griffin fondling Woz's apples were a bit off, according to Adario Strange. He's proudly skeptical of the whole thing, pointing to a Page Six post that he claims says the two have never met. But reading the Page Six page actually says…
Steve Wozniak announced that Apple was consorting with the enemy and ignoring its core business by partnering with Intel and focusing on the iPod. Harsh words until you consider that he was taking part in a four-on-four Segway polo tournament in New Zealand at the time.
