“We had no idea what it would look like,” Steve Wozniak told me when we co-wrote his memoir, iWOZ: How I Invented the Personal Computer and Had Fun Doing It (W.W. Norton, 2006). Wozniak was first in line as usual — caught at dawn at the Westfield Mall, Century Plaza in LA. He sent me this YouTube video today.
Few people expect Wozniak, the inventor of the first Apple computers and a celebrity in his own right, to wait in line for a product he likely will get for free from the Cupertino giant he founded with the late Steve Jobs in 1976. His wife, Janet, works at Apple, too. “I wait in line,” he told me today, “for the same reason some people celebrate holidays.”
This is a really nice interview — you get the real Steve here. Open, honest and way, way too enthused for this early in the morning : ) Vintage Steve.
