You do of course pay a premium for the signature, but every single penny you pay will go to two charities helping to deal with the California wildfires …
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has sued YouTube for allowing his name, photos and videos to be used by Bitcoin scammers. Videos have been posted to the video sharing site which mirror the scam carried out in the recent Twitter hack …
Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak took to Twitter this afternoon to suggest that he and his wife “may have both been patient zero” for coronavirus in the United States. As it turns out, this wasn’t the case.

In a new interview with Bloomberg today, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak shared some of his thoughts about folding phones. With Samsung and Huawei currently leading the market with innovation in this space, he’s predictably worried about iPhone falling behind.
Announced just about a year ago, the coding program Woz U, created with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, was designed with the goal of offering an affordable education. Now that a round of students have been through the curriculum, there seems to be a lot of problems with the program.
After initially holding out on picking up an iPhone X, Steve Wozniak said last month that Tim Cook sent him one. While he hasn’t shared much about his thoughts on the flagship iPhone to date, last week he described some of his biggest frustrations with the iPhone X in a talk at the Nordic Business Forum in Stockholm.

Woz also offered up a few anecdotes about his years working with Steve Jobs. Wozniak is one of several speakers at the one day conference focused on providing insight about emerging technology.
Lots of people plan to buy the iPhone X, but Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak isn’t one of them – at least, not on day one. He said this will be the first year he doesn’t upgrade to a new iPhone at launch …
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has implied that Apple is too big a company to come up with the next big thing in tech.
Interviewed by Bloomberg on what are likely to be the biggest tech breakthroughs in the coming years, and which companies are likely to make them, Woz didn’t list Apple as a contender. A later comment he made underlined the fact that he doesn’t think it will be Apple …
Daniel Kottke, Chris Espinosa, Randy Wigginton, Bill Fernandez and Steve Wosniak – the original Apple I team
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has told USA Today that Apple will still be around in 2075 – alongside Google and Facebook.
Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911). Look at Apple’s cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075). The same goes for Google and Facebook.
He made the prediction ahead of the Silicon Valley Comic Con, whose theme is ‘The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075?’ and said that he and Steve Jobs made that assumption from the start …
It’s been an interesting election cycle to say the least, and now Pokémon Go is entering the fray. The presumptive nominees for both major political parties today addressed the game that’s seemingly taking over the internet, both attempting to use the game to lure in potential voters and talk job creation.
In an interview with the BBC on national British radio, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that he believes Apple should pay 50% tax, along with all other companies. He said he doesn’t like the distinction of different rules between corporations and individuals.
Today, although Apple has never been found to evade tax or conduct illegal practices, it does not pay at top-rate tax, using a variety of financial engineering schemes to redirect profits elsewhere, such as Ireland, with significantly lower tax requirements.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been announced as one of three judges of Talent Unleashed, a competition to identify the best tech companies in five categories. Fellow judges are Virgin founder Richard Branson and Facebook VP Nicola Mendelsohn.

There are five categories, including Best Start-up (Social Impact), Best Start-up (Tech Innovation) and Best Digital SME.
The prize is one-on-one time with Woz, but as this is described as time with him ‘at an exclusive cocktail party,’ it’s not clear that this is the kind of consultancy input entrants might hope for.
Woz retains an honorary position with Apple, but does not play an active role. He does, though, sometimes comment on the company, siding with Apple against the FBI but expressing concern at the complexity of the Apple Watch line-up.
Steve Wozniak today has done an ‘Ask Me Anything’ on Reddit, taking questions from users on variety of topics. Wozniak, who also gave a video interview for Reddit’s new Formative series, discussed things such as Tim Cook, Apple’s battle with the FBI, Apple Watch, and much more.
Appearing on Conan last night, Woz said that he sided with Apple in the FBI fight, first because he’s always been strong on human rights, as one of the founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, but because governments shouldn’t be able to tell manufacturers to make their products insecure at a time when security is so important.
He argued that there is absolutely no reason to think the FBI would learn anything from the iPhone in question.
They picked a lame case. They picked the lamest case you ever could […]
[For the shooters’ own phones] Verizon turned over all the phone records, all the SMS messages. So they want to take this other phone, that the two didn’t destroy, which was a work phone, and it’s so lame and worthless to expect something’s on it and get Apple to expose it.
Revealing that he had once written something that could have acted as a Macintosh virus, he said he’d thrown away every line of code because he was so scared of what might happen if the code got out …
Interviewed by Bloomberg, Steve Wozniak reiterated his comments about the difference between fact and fiction in the Steve Jobs movie, saying that almost nothing shown actually happened, but that it was about personalities, not facts.
It’s a great movie. If Steve Jobs had been making movies, this is the quality it would have had.
Steve Jobs, the controversial Sorkin/Boyle not-quite biopic, achieved the highest opening weekend Per-Theater Average (PTA) of any movie this year, reports Deadline. The movie also gave director Danny Boyle the best ever weekend average of his career.
The feature grossed sizzling $520,942, averaging $130,236. By comparison, Boyle’s Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire (2008) grossed over $360K in 10 theaters its debut weekend, averaging $36K. The drama about the Apple founder, adapted by Aaron Sorkin, easily outpaced Sicario‘s $67K debut PTA.
[Ed. Note: This is a guest post by Lontih Khatami who [disclosure] works at the same studio, Universal, that produced the film but did not work on the film. Spoiler: it’s better than iSteve]
Interested in seeing the new Steve Jobs movie that Universal is releasing this weekend in select markets (with wide expansion set for October 23)? Well, me, too. Only I’ve already seen it five times within the past dozen days. And I eagerly await my next few viewings.
You’re probably wondering how I’ve been able to see this inevitable Oscar contender so many times prior to its initial release. The more important thing to ponder, though, is “Why would anybody WANT to see it so many times in such a short timeframe?” The answer to that question, quite simply, is because the movie is masterfully made, and it works on so many different levels. Not unlike so many of the products the title character brought into this world… Expand Expanding Close
With Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs biopic set to hit theaters tomorrow, Universal Pictures has released what will likely be the final clip before the movie’s premiere. In the two-minute scene, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (played by Seth Rogen) questions Michael Fassbender’s Steve Jobs about his role in the computer industry.
Woz points out that Jobs has no engineering skill or experience and that most of his greatest accomplishments were built on the work of others, including Woz himself—yet Jobs seems to get most of the credit. Jobs goes on the defensive, positioning himself as the “conductor” of an engineering orchestra.
