Donald Trump is a very rude person. Would I ever want a child of mine to grow up talking that nastily about other people? Absolutely not. It just offends me.

Apple inventor and cofounder Steve Wozniak is way, way nicer than this namesake in the new “Steve Jobs” movie opening in US theatres this month. I know this because I spent hundreds of hours with Wozniak in the course of researching and writing his memoir, iWoz: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Doing It (WW Norton) back in 2005 and 2006. Far from the argumentative, cussing Wozniak that Seth Rogen portrays in the new movie, the real Wozniak is breezy and easy to get along with, almost to a fault.

You've now had a chance to watch the rough cut of the film. What were your impressions of it?
I've actually seen two rough cuts. My impression was I was shocked and amazed at how good it was in the sense of professional filmmaking.
I usually go to a movie not looking for "do I like the story" as much as: "What is the quality that came out of the heads of the people that made it?"
In this case the filmmakers have done an award-winning job. The acting was just so realistic.
Great work in the movie. It was a really innervating experience. I’m curious if there was something about Steve Wozniak that, when you met him, you really wanted to carry across in your performance.

Even while the goal has already been surpassed, every dollar counts towards his future and total recovery.—JD
If you’ve ever used an Apple product—or any computer—you have Steve Wozniak to thank. Also known as “Woz,” Wozniak co-founded Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.) with Steve Jobs after working for tech giants Atari and Hewlett Packard. In the late 1970s, he designed the Apple I and Apple II personal computers, which shaped the revolution in microprocessor-based computers and launched the personalized computer industry.

Woz: Hello iPhone 6, goodbye Android Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he tossed out all the Android devices he's spoken so lovingly of in the past.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is one of the most likable guys in tech -- but that doesn't mean he always likes everything. That Ashton Kutcher Steve Jobs biopic? Woz said it got a lot wrong. Wearables? Woz says they're a hard sell. But Woz sure likes Apple's new iPhone 6, so much so that he's ditching Android, Google's mobile operating system he's grown fond of.
A US auction house is preparing to bid off a piece of Apple Computer history that could fetch more than $500,000. Bonhams will auction off a rare Apple I system handmade by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak when the biz was in its infancy. According to the auction house, the model was assembled by Woz in 1976 as part of an order for 50 systems by local store Byte Shop. Touted at the time as a complete PC, the Apple I would today be considered little more than a DIY kit; customers had to supply their own case, keyboard, power supply and monitor.
In so many of the stories, there is a young questioner and there is an adult (often a parent, sometimes a grandparent, uncle, or schoolteacher) who cares deeply about those questions. It seems that when kids routinely ask What is that? and How does it work?, the answers you give in response—and perhaps more importantly, the way you answer those questions, the level of interest and passion shown—may be far more significant than it might seem at the time.
Dear Mr Wozniak,
My name is Edward and I am 12 years old, currently living in Sydney, Australia.
I wanted to email you to express my deep gratitude to you for what you have taught me about life. You showed me that you can be the most successful person in the world and be so humble. You also showed me how you can put in the hard yards but you can still have a laugh with your mates while doing it. -- Read More
Woz was interviewed for this documentary last November. The documentary will air on CCTV Channel 2 (Business & Finance) in China, at 9:10pm starting from 8/25 (one episode everyday for 10 consecutive days). Here is a link to the program (in Chinese). It will also air on CCTV Channel 1, 4 and 9 later this year.
A noted philanthropist, Steve Wozniak made a commitment to help schools, but simply donating money was not as good as becoming involved personally. "You have to give yourself. You have to make a sacrifice. I had always wanted to teach, so I started teaching." His subject was how to use a computer to improve study skills and apply it in all the other subjects. He taught for eight years, volunteering the whole time.
Wozniak is the sole inventor of 4 patents, namely Microcomputer for use with video display (US Patent No. 4,136,359). Controller for magnetic disc, recorder, or the like (US Patent No. 4,210,959), Apparatus for digitally controlling PAL color display (US Patent No. 4,217,604), Digitally-controlled color signal generation means for use with display (US Patent No. 4,278,972). In 1976, with the help of Wozniak’s patented inventions and his creation, the Apple I personal computer, Wozniak and Jobs founded Apple Computers.

After spotting his latest hot wheels — a super-spiffy Tesla X — we were inspired to take inventory of what he’s been docking in his garage (that other one) all these years. He’s something of a speed demon, really. Though you’ll be the judge whether he or Jony Ive has the winning wheels.
Watch Woz deliver a Mac to Emma, a girl who freaks out when she realises her idol is at the door carrying her new computer. As Emma’s father says in the video: “This is like having your lightbulbs delivered by Thomas Edison”.
When asked why he doesn't have a Netflix subscription, he responded "I don't have high enough broadband speed where I live, I've got a lousy phone company. So, basically, I don't watch television, I just download films from iTunes - although sometimes I have to wait 13 hours for one movie to download.

I was hosting a show at the Punchline and Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple!) showed up. He was nice/bored enough to stick around afterward to chat people up and hand out his insanely cool, metal business cards. I still have mine.
Steve Wozniak, more fondly known as Woz, co-founded Apple with his friends Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne. He invented the Apple I and Apple II in the 70s before leaving Apple in 1987, but that certainly wasn't the end of Woz in the media. He's quite the chatterbox, and, here at Macworld, we rather enjoy trying to guess what on Earth he's going to say next.

Of the three Apple cofounders, the two we know best couldn't have been more different from each other – Steve Wozniak was the yin to Steve Jobs' yang.
“Everybody says, ‘oh my gosh, two years have passed and we need something really new and great from Apple’,” he said. “Well yeah, great advances for mankind don't happen every year.” Wozniak was answering a question about whether Apple had lost its innovative edge since Tim Cook took over the helm at Cupertino. But his remarks are telling and show how ludicrous things have got that a wholly rejigged iPhone 5S, albeit with a similar design, is dismissed outright as iterative and unexciting in some quarters.

AN Original Apple computer has sold for $US387,750 ($427,000) at auction - far below estimates that it could fetch $500,0000. The Apple-1, one of the first 25 Apple-1's ever made, was hand built in 1976 by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who even signed it "Woz". The computer was sold at a Christie's online auction of vintage technology items.
"Yeah, there’s some debate. So it’s a tiny thing. It’s only one thing in life, but he did tell me that we would get paid 700 bucks, then he wrote me a check for 350 dollars, and he got paid thousands. So, whatever. But he should have told me differently because we were such close friends. The fun of doing it overrides anything like that. Who cares about money? Well, I do care about friendship and honesty."

Wozniak, visiting Australia in his role as chief scientist for enterprise storage vendor Fusion IO, told a gathering of Australian media yesterday that mechanical storage was no longer fast enough for use as primary storage.
I love when Steve Wozniak says things. He's usually hilariously critical of Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Jobs. So I was excited to see him finally comment on Apple's controversial new Maps app that does away with Google Maps data. (My colleague Jay Yarow emailed Woz last week, but Woz had only used Apple Maps for less than a day and said he couldn't comment.)
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak flew to Australia to be among the first in the world to get his (he was seventh in line at the Apple store in Brisbane).

Interview: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak set for keynote address at Turing Festival | Edinburgh Festival GuidePosted on 10. Aug, 2012 by luckow
Creativity and entrepreneurial spirit have long coursed through the veins of Edinburgh each August but before the arrival of the Turing Festival this rarely took the form of cutting-edge thinking in computing and technology. That’s been more than compensated for this year though with the news that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will be giving the Festival’s keynote address.
These are photos taken at the photo booth at Woz' 62nd birthday party.
Steve Wozniak, one of the two famous Steves who created Apple Computer back in the early days of Silicon Valley, went to the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco this evening, unaware that a party was brewing there in his honor. The surprise birthday party was thrown by Fusion-io, the company that employs Wozniak as chief scientist. Secretly invited guests arrived to find pink boas, noise makers, and a chance to play Tetris, according to AllThingsD, who took some photos at the event.
The hottest event in San Francisco tonight is a birthday party. Why? The birthday boy is Steve Wozniak. Fusion-io, where Woz is chief scientist, planned the party as a surprise for the Apple co-founder at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Q What are your pet road peeves -- the things other drivers do that annoy you most? A I dislike it when drivers slow down to a near-stop as they look for particular streets, addresses or businesses. I also disdain drivers who pull into a business driveway and take forever to complete their pull-in while I sit behind them in a traffic lane that should be moving.
You all know Steve Wozniak. If you're using a computer today is partly because this man created some really awesome things. You know, like changing the world with the other Steve.

More than six months after it was released in select theaters, Robert Cringely’s “lost” Steve Jobs interview is now available in the U.S. iTunes. “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview” consists of footage originally filmed in 1995 for the PBS series “Triumph of the Nerds.” Only 10 minutes of the interview was actually used in the series, while the rest of it was assumed to be lost. It was later found in the director’s garage and the original tape was cleaned up and restored.
Watch Steve Wozniak Talk About the Good Old Times at Apple—Because He’s Just Awesome Listening to Woz during dinner and at the Gizmodo Gallery opening was some of the most enjoyable time of my life. His stories were absolutely fascinating. And not only the ones about The Other Steve, but all the technical stuff that he did back in the good old times, where computers were still fun and simple.
"When you can't stop something like a steamroller," Wozniak wrote, "get out of the way."
His first invention was a device that could make three free phone calls to anywhere in the world. His first killer app was the spreadsheet program. Steve Wozniak created the Apple I computer, which led to the microcomputer revolution. The Woz came to downtown Buffalo last week for the Be Motivated event to share about a variety of topics, including insights about the late Steve Jobs.
Sotheby's has auctioned off a functioning Apple 1 computer, alongside a memo written by Steve Jobs during his time at Atari. The computer sold for double the estimate, reaching $374,500. The memo sold for $27,500, also much higher than expected.

Bearded, burly Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak kept it light and breezy in his address to more than 1,100 Santa Clara University graduates steaming in their black robes under high morning heat Saturday. The Silicon Valley icon affectionately known as "Woz," repeated his own life formula in a 10-minute commencement talk at the Jesuit university -- lessons gleaned from an early love of math and engineering and tested out over a lengthy career that includes launching the world's most beloved computer company.
ROTTERDAM JUNCTION, N.Y. — Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak made a surprise visit to a local horse farm Wednesday morning and offered praise for, and criticism of, Apple.

The Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia booked a last-minute reservation for a star guest last night: Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple along with Steve Jobs. Wozniak was coming from Buffalo, where he was speaking at a business seminar. He canceled a flight to San Francisco, rented a car and made the late-night drive to the Capital Region. The mission: Visit a horse named after him at Peaceful Acres Horses Inc., which rescues those animals from being slaughtered.
The crumbs of rumors regarding the biographical movie about America’s most beloved CEO, “jOBS,” are shaping up to be a full-fledged production sheet for the film. First, Aaron Sorkin was confirmed to direct the film. Aston Kutcher is said to be on board to play Jobs himself. Broadway star Josh Gad was recently in talks with movie execs to take on the roll of the prankster-loving Steve Wozniak. Now, Mathew Modine has been confirmed to play Apple’s former CEO John Sculley. Technically, that would make him the villain of the film.
My transistor radio was a gift from my parents when I was probably about eight years old. To this day, I view every gadget in terms of that: How well it fits in your life. I remember that radio so well! It was so important to me.
You probably weren’t paying attention when a tiny company called Apple Computer introduced its second product, the Apple II microcomputer, at the West Coast Computer Faire on April 16 and 17, 1977. (I wasn’t.) You may never have owned an Apple II. (I didn’t.) But it’s still easy to get fascinated by the machine and its legacy. (I sure am.) And there are many ways to explore its world — many of which you can do without getting out of the chair you’re sitting in right now, thanks to the Web.
Ask the average geek to describe the Apple II and you'll probably hear something about its legacy or software. Ask Steve Wozniak circa 1977, on the other hand, and he'll write you a technical tome -- or at least he did for Byte magazine. Way back when the classic computer was fresh, a young Woz penned an extremely detailed "system description" for the rig, pouring over specifics on the II's graphical capabilities, memory, peripherals, programming language and more.

A biopic based on the life of Steve Jobs will shoot portions of the film at the home where Jobs grew up and the garage where he co-founded Apple, the people behind the movie announced. The film is set to cover Jobs' "30 most defining years," according to a press release. The movie covers his years as a youth all the way through his second stint with Apple. The movie, "jOBS," which is due out in late fall, is set to begin principle photography next month. Ashton Kutcher has been cast to play the lead role.
Steve Jobs couldn't start Apple without Steve Wozniak, and apparently Aaron Sorkin can't tell Jobs' story without the Woz. The Oscar-winning screenwriter has hired the Apple co-founder as an adviser as he turns Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography "Steve Jobs" into a screenplay for a movie project that Sony Pictures announced on Tuesday. Sorkin is best known for his Academy Award-winning adaptation of "The Social Network," an account of how Mark Zuckerberg built the Facebook empire.

APPLE co-founder Steve Wozniak says the company's technology is so good it will probably never be a victim of its own success by becoming uncool. "Apple a victim of its own success? You could have asked that at any point along the way," the American technology guru said after a business forum in Perth yesterday. "Of course there's always a chance - and there's also a chance that it will become twice as successful because of its success."

If all you want to see is Steve Jobs playfully portraying Franklin Delano Roosevelt - right down to the cigarette holder - here's that short clip before we get to the longer version of the film that it's taken from and an explanation:
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is the geek's geek, the tinkerer's tinkerer. It's why he still camps out at Apple retail stores when a new product is released. It's also why he totes around numerous gadgets at all times. However, it would surprise many to learn that one of those gadgets is a Windows Phone 7 phone. If that didn't raise your brow, how about this: The Woz thinks Microsoft's mobile OS is the most attractive on the market.
Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak discussed his love of technology, and especially computers, at a Town Hall hosted by USC’s Academic Culture Assembly on Thursday. “A computer sitting there unused was a crime to me,” Wozniak said. Wozniak used any computer he could get his hands on — for anything from programming to pranks.
If the Apple II was made of flesh, blood, and bone, it would probably be out shopping a sports car today, one of the many rituals that seem to manifest when you reach middle age. The Apple II, you see, was introduced to the world 35 years ago at the West Coast Computer Faire. The 8-bit machine would go on sale to the general public less than two months later on June 5, 1977.
Steve Jobs Avenue has officially been confirmed in Brazil by Jundiai's city council. The avenue was announced on 6 October 2011, the day after Jobs died, but Brazillian blog MacMagazine reports that the council recently made the name official.
Maybe Woz was a fan of "That 70's Show"? Or is it just the fact that he's one of the nicest guys in Silicon Valley who's never disparaged another carbon-based life form? It will be interesting to see whether Kutcher can truly pull off the turtleneck and jeans. And more importantly, who will play Woz?
On Wednesday Woz's View of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in New Movie was a top story. Here is the recap: (TMZ) Steve Wozniak is officially endorsing Ashton Kutcher to play Steve Jobs in an upcoming movie about the Apple co-founder ... telling TMZ, "I'm glad that he's onboard."
No one likes a thief who gets away with stolen items and especially not 8 year old Landon Crabtree. After a burglar broke into his family’s house to get away with the family’s iPad and a few other items, the family got insurance money for the lost goods. But Landon wasn’t going to stand for someone else having his iPad and used Apple’s free Find my iPhone to recover the iPad. However, that’s not the only thing police found.
A Cool song about Steve Jobs:
"When I heard that Steve Jobs had passed away, I felt so sad that we had lost such a dynamic, brilliant, creative mind. And then my thoughts went to a song that I had originally released in 2008 called Rapplistory. I feel that this song truly plays homage to Steve Jobs and all that he accomplished. There may never be anyone like him again. We will miss you Steve." - Daphne Kalfon

Singapore is far too straight-laced, says Apple co-founder and engineering hero Steve Wozniak, and employers should let their workers wear T-shirts. Speaking this morning, Woz told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that a counterculture ethos was vital for creativity and it had a continuing influence on Apple. And a counterculture ethos meant letting people wear what they want to, he said.
Allowing a counterculture to develop is vital to creating companies that will revolutionise an industry, according to Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple. Speaking to Evan Davis for a BBC 2 programme about his former business partner Steve Jobs, he said that allowing creativity in the early days of Apple was far more important than how you dressed or the length of your hair.
