    Steve Wozniak had just pulled his iPhone out of his pocket when he told a group of Apple (AAPL) investors in Los Angeles Friday that the device -- or one of its successors -- would someday be his closest companion.

    The launch and the release of the new iPad created a huge number of people to patiently wait online and offline just to get a chance to be among the first ones to touch and be the proud owner of the "priceless" Apple tablet.

Mr. Steve Wozniak was spotted in a video by Shira Lazar of What's Trending lining up at the Westfield Century City Mall in Los Angeles to get the new iPad. Wow, this is very interesting!

    Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is visiting Auckland on May 21 to present a seminar called "The Apple Story: Disruptive Innovation, Inspiration and Entrepreneurial Wizardry." While the late Steve Jobs was regarded as Apple's creative force, the more reclusive Mr Wozniak was regarded as the engineering brains behind the company's early products. The pair had a tortured relationship, Walter Isaacson related in his official biography of Steve Jobs. Mr Jobs passionately believed that good design and user-friendliness could only be achieved if a company controlled hardware, software (and, later, online services).

    ANKENY, Iowa -- It took just 10 minutes for tickets to disappear to a DMACC event featuring the co-founder of Apple. The speech by Steve Wozniak is part of the school's iWeek events at DMACC's West Des Moines Campus set for March 5 to 8. Wozniak tickets were free to those who were first in an electronic line. "We could have given out three times as many tickets, but are restricted by space limitations," said Dr. Tony Paustian, Provost of the DMACC West Campus. "The interest in our speakers this year is a good indication how popular and well attended iWeek will be."

    In April, 1976 Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne. Shortly thereafter they began selling the Apple I. In the thirty-six years since, Apple has released hundreds of products. Some have been flops. Others have revolutionized – or even created – entire markets. Now one YouTube user has created a video showing (almost) every product from Apple’s three and a half decades in thirty seconds. There are no words and no labels on the products, so you’ll have to see which ones you can recognize on your own.

    San Francisco got a taste of Lana Del Rey madness Thursday night as the bewitching singer celebrated the release of her debut album, Born to Die, at Amoeba Music. Fresh from her successful performance at Amoeba Hollywood Tuesday night, Lana Del Rey arrived to the San Francisco store at 2:30pm and took the time to greet deliriously happy fans out on Haight Street (even greeting a friend of a fan's through his cell phone) before heading up to the Amoeba green room to get ready for her 6:00pm show. To say the show was well attended would be an understatement as the store's capacity was reached sometime around 5:30pm. With the store packed full of admirers and a line of hopefuls down Haight Street (and around the block), it would be safe to say that over 1,500 fans turned out to see the new voice of their generation.

    Back in the mid-1970‘s a young engineer named Steve Wozniak pitched his boss at Hewlett-Packard on his idea for building a personal computer. Back then, computers were offered as kits designed for techies to build, not the finished, consumer products they are today. HP told Wozniak it wasn’t interested so he went on and joined his pal Steve Jobs to start a company called Apple Computer. Fast forward about 35 years and Apple is looking in the rear view mirror at HP as it just passed the computer giant as the leading volume producer of PCs in the world, according to the latest research by Canalys covering the fourth quarter of 2011.
