To: The Good Steve. From: Gizmodo crew. Message: Happy birthday, Señor Wozniak. It's not only that you made the world a better place with all your inventions, but you are also the coolest guy in the whole computer industry.


Plus, you are a better dancer than most people here. Except maybe your New York twin brother.

We wish you only the very best in your 60th anniversary.

100% of my disdain for Apple products can be attributed to Steve Jobs' Mel Gibson-esque level of crazy.

If The Woz was in charge, I would actually consider buying one of their products.

Why? Because The Woz is the creator, the innovator. He made the ideas come to life.

Jobs? He's a good marketer, but he markets to the wrong audience as the one I'm in (read: not a yuppie sheep who feels it's perfectly okay to overpay for a product becau... oooh shiny!) and because he asserts way too much control over products that were purchased and should thus no longer be his property to control.

I should be able to put a porn app on a device I *own* regardless of who made the device.

So, in conclusion to the tldr:

Happy Birthday Woz! You're the only one at Apple who doesn't make me cry.
