  1. What we enjoy as granted tecnology today, is thx to him, jobs was an extraordinary sales man but all he was doing was selling WOZ efforts and ideas and genious around. Woz deserve way more than Jobs he made the entire humanity do a big leap forward.

  2. The Woz, Dennis Ritchie, Ken Thompson, Brian Kernighan… the public doesn't know these names but they're the reason why we have the stuff we do. Dennis Ritchie created the programming language C and co-developed UNIX with Thompson. Everyone except Microsoft uses a UNIX-based OS today.

  3. AND "THIS" is how the real world works. NOT with 6 assholes in basement asking for contributions and pre-sales on the basis of a CIG produced model.

  4. Does anyone else find this overrated man's horsedung testimony about personally building and soldering the motherboard to a computer to be insulting? As if I was born yesterday.
    I bet if you gave him the finest tools to do it again he'd fumble quickly.

  5. I love the Woz way more than Jobs. Woz is under-rated. But Woz does look like he is a fat man wearing a Tim Allen skin suit.

  6. He sticks solder in his mouth! No wonder he is mad. As are the posters here who cower behind infantile fake names. Children who are so scared, that they cannot emerge from their mother's apron, let alone their basement.

  7. He left because jobs didn't want to support woz or his ideas , jobs took credit for what woz created . Apple would be a very different company if woz was CEO .

  8. One of the few guys in this world that actually deserves his fortune and always comes off as an absolute top bloke! Still think Apples/Iphones and all that junk suck mind and its users could be seen as cult members 😛 PC for life!

  9. Jobs was the pilot with the vision and the killer instinct to make it in the business world, Woz was the engine and brains to make the vision reality. They needed each other to change the world. Both are geniuses with their own talents.

  10. First learnt to use a computer on the Apple 2. Still remember playing Transylvania on it at school. It was such a wonder at the time.

  11. Private enterprise. Democrats ought to realize their dream models of the Soviet Union, North Korea, Ethiopia, Cuba, and Cambodia don't yield this.
