More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world’s richest company—and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer.

To say he’s an icon in the worlds of engineering, design, and manufacturing is an understatement. But how else does one summarize someone who helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II, not to mention co-founded the groundbreaking company, and who went on to create a career and life that spans innovations and honors including receiving the National Medal of Technology; founding the first programmable universal remote control company, CL 9; founding a wireless hardware location finder company, Wheels of Zeus; and who has given generously of his time and resources to not-for-profits, including teaching computer classes in local elementary schools.

Also pretty fascinating is how the SSAFE project sparred against Apple's second-most-famous founder, Steve Wozniak. In a November 1979 memo, a member of the team named Joe Shelton details testing protection schemes against "Woz's hardware assisted procedure to copy the diskettes." He suggests that this might be a standard for measuring the project's success: "If only someone with Woz's expertise can copy software protected with the current scheme, might it be protection enough?" The remainder of the documents show continued debates about the kind of software protection that's practical for Apple's systems, but the archive ends before detailing much in the way of concrete results. As we know, the business challenge of software piracy has yet to be completely solved, by Apple or anyone else.

The press got it wrong, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told me today. He never said Apple should make an Android phone. It was a joke. Woz comments here.

It seems Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder, had a change of heart. The Woz took to Twitter to announce has indeed purchased a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. As a basic timeline, Wozniak took to his personal Facebook to rave about the 2017 Bolt EV in September. He even stated, “I expect to be switching cars soon!” However, that wasn’t the case.
