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.
A reflective Steve Wozniak joined a student audience at the University of Southern California Thursday evening to discuss his entrepreneurial spirit in the creation of Apple computers. Wozniak had founded Apple Computers with Steve Jobs in the 1970’s.

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.

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.

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."
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?
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.
If it’s the elite of the world that influence the behavior of the masses, better book your hotel in China this year before rooms fill up. In the same week that the web and Twitter worlds have been following visits to China by Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it was announced today that yet another U.S. tech luminary will be coming to the Middle Kingdom: Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple with Steve Jobs. Rather than spending all of his time with geeks, Wozniak will be in Shanghai to press the flesh with (yikes!) members of the International Council of Shopping Centers at the Retail Real Estate World Summit, a “multinational forum to address and shape the critical role and socio-economic impact of the worldwide property market.” Let’s hope Wozniak also finds time to inspire some Chinese geeks. He has plenty of time to work on it: The conference will be held September 12-14.
