Woz Is Out Of The Loop At Apple
Regular readers here at HotHardware know I'm a big fan of Steve "Woz" Wozniak. And it's not just because of his historical importance to desktop computing, but due to his obvious intelligence, demeanor, and general good nature. Well, the game at Gizmodo has just posted the final installment of their video interview with Woz and in it he reveals something interesting about his interest in upcoming products at Apple. (And just in case you're wondering, yes, that is a picture from the front bezel of my "Woz" signed Limited Edition Apple IIgs that still works perfectly. Sword of Sodan anyone?)
"In the final installment of our interview with Apple co-founder/inventor of the personal computer Steve Wozniak, he lets us know some details of his "outsider" status at Apple and why he likes it that way. Does he have all the inside scoops before anyone else? Nope. Does he get the first prototypes of each new product? Nope. But that's just the way he wants it. Woz is a man of the people."
While you're there, be sure to check out the first few installments of Woz's video interview as well. Even when he's not talking about anything particularly juicy, you can tell this guy's wheels are turning just a tad faster than most other folks.
