Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, pictured right, said: 'People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself.
'We've lost something we won't get back. The way I see it, though, the way people love products he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world.'
The first computer my parents ever bought me was an Apple Macintosh Classic. I wrote one of my first stories on that computer. At 12-years-old it was my first introduction into a world Steve Jobs helped create.
When the news first broke that Apple Inc.founder Steve Jobs died at the age of 56, finally succumbing to his battle with pancreatic cancer, I found out on my MacBook Pro. I then immediately received a text message about his passing from a friend via my iPhone.
Woz waits in line like everybody else. He also will talk to anyone.
The Silicon Valley genius behind Apple chats with Patch about his friendship with Steve Jobs, Apple's origins, its future, what the company's up against—and whether he would go back.
Piers Morgan interviewed Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak last night, who discussed growing up with Steve Jobs, the resignation and more. Wozniak discussed the legacy of Jobs. "Giving mankind the most useful, helpful tools we've ever had," he said. "The ones that we not only use, but we love."
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak lauded Steve Jobs as “the greatest technology business leader of our time,” saying the the company will be just fine as Jobs steps down.

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

August 11, is Steve "Woz" Wozniak's 61st birthday. We know, 61 is really an insignificant birthday for us to be mentioning it. Normally, once you pass the big 6-0, any birthdays you have up until 80 are pointless and involve "Over-the-Hill" party favors that usually have crows flying over your grave. However, Art Attack felt insensitive to have missed Woz's 60th and thought, we could throw the guy a memory stick and celebrate a little. If Steve Jobs was our former partner, watching his total domination over the world might give us the occasional case of the Green Monster, and who doesn't want to be celebrated?
Considering the fact that Windows 95 hadn’t even been released when federal agents finally caught up with the computer hacker Kevin Mitnick, one might assume his new memoir would be full of stale old tech-and-techniques that no one in 2011 could possibly care about. But as Mitnick makes clear here, don’t jump to conclusions.
While he excelled at infiltrating computer systems from a keyboard and had a sharp memory for numbers, “Ghost in the Wires” (written with William L. Simon) really showcases another of Mitnick’s skills: social engineering, or what he describes as “the casual or calculated manipulation of people to influence them to do things they would not ordinarily do.” By doing his research and impersonating authority figures over the phone or by e-mail, Mitnick found he could persuade just about anybody — programmers, technicians, even the nice lady at the Social Security Administration — to give him the things he wanted, like passwords, computer chips and personal information about F.B.I. informants on his tail. “People, as I had learned at a very young age, are just too trusting,” he writes.
