Our favorite Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, has a white iPhone 4. Surprisingly, he didn't use his Apple connections to get one though. CNN says Woz got it from that ballsy Chinese teen who sold white iPhones.


In an interview at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley, Woz flashed the white iPhone 4, stunning the reporter who was interviewing him. They assumed he used his longstanding relationship with Apple to land one (they've been seen on Apple's campus before). But that's not our Woz!

His white iPhone 4 is actually a modified black version using authentic parts sold by that teen. According to CNN:

CNN touched base with him after Apple-news blog 9to5 Mac reported that a reader e-mailed Wozniak about this post, and that Woz suggested the phone might be modified with a kit a Chinese teenager was selling before being shut down by Apple.

Wozniak said something similar Wednesday to CNN. "I saw a post and got in quick and ordered my set of parts," he wrote.

Hopefully, you were as keen as Woz if you wanted the white iPhone 4 too.[9to5Mac via CNN]

What do you Woz's family members buy him for Christmas? I can't imagine that someone with such a roaming intellect as his is easily satisfied and he's likely to already own the latest piece of lust-worthy tech before you're even aware of it.

Probably just socks then?

Weird question, I know.
