    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.

    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

    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.

    I got a new camera today, the Lytro Illum. They gave me an office tour as well.

    You can shift the pictures around a bit, 3D’ish, by moving the mouse. This only works it CHROME. You can click on a face to bring it into focus. This does actually work on Safari although I’m not sure it’s the same effect. By the way, you can do something very similar with the HTC One M8 photos…they have a simpler mechanism using 2 cameras and it’s fun to refocus later, although that phone camera doesn’t do as good a photography job.

    To see these photos in very real 3D fashion you need a special program and a 3D TV but you have to believe me that it’s rather incredible to see. -- Woz

    "Wow! This reporter actually got it all right and didn’t sensationalize things by misquoting me." --Woz

    SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The Woz showed off his nixie tube watch and gave the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch a big thumbs down in a public appearance here. Steve Wozniak, the designer of the original Apple personal computer, was in top form, firing off opinions in his characteristic, rapid, stream-of-consciousness style on everything from innovation and the Internet of Things to what inspired him to become an engineer.
