Apple's Steve Jobs is known for his love of music and revolutionizing how we listen to it today. But did you know that the other Steve, Apple's co-founder Steve Wozniak, had his hand in the music scene, too?
In the early '80s Wozniak put on a short-lived music event called US Festival through his UNUSON Corporation. The first installment took place on Labor Day 1982. The 1983 festival, its second and final edition, is coming to DVD. That year's event hosted acts including U2, David Bowie, Stevie Nicks, Van Halen, Judas Priest, INXS, Stray Cats and The English Beat, Men at Work, Berlin and Triumph as well as The Clash for one of the band's final performance

Steve Wozniak wants computers to be more human – or at least more people-friendly. He came to this epiphany while writing himself a note on an early computerized tablet. When he tapped a button marked “assist,” it automatically transferred the information in his handwritten note into a calendar. He thought, “Why can’t all computers do this?”
“You probably already have the next Steve Jobs working for you.” Amazon’s Jeff Bezos says it’s not him. Oracle’s Larry Ellison races boats and sells databases, not SL500s and smartphones. And Google’s Larry Page? Well… he’s just too darn celestially smart.
