Wearing an Apple Watch, Steve Wozniak appeared on Conan last night and – unsurprisingly – defended Apple in the case against the FBI. That’s hardly surprising, considering that Wozniak is a co-founder of both Apple and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) – the latter recently explained why Apple is right to advocate strong encryption.
Jony Ive might not have any interest in seeing the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic, but it’s a safe bet that the upcoming film will attract a lot of interest once it opens up to a widespread release later this month. In an effort to keep the hype train going, Universal Pictures yesterday put out yet another tantalizing clip from the film
Starring Seth Rogan as Woz, the clip below features Woz flat-out questioning just what in the world Steve Jobs does. Taking umbrage with Jobs’ condescension, Rogan goes off on Jobs and calls into question the skills, if any, he brings to the table. Not missing a beat, Jobs calmly fires back: “I play the orchestra. And you’re a good musician. You sit right there, you’re the best in your row.”
When recently asked for his opinion about Edward Snowden, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had nothing but effusive praise for the controversial NSA whistleblower. In an interview with ArabianBusiness.com, Wozniak called Snowden a hero.
“Total hero to me; total hero,” Wozniak said. “Not necessarily [for] what he exposed, but the fact that he internally came from his own heart, his own belief in the United States Constitution, what democracy and freedom was about. And now a federal judge has said that NSA data collection was unconstitutional.”
It seems the rumors are true and Apple is indeed working on a vehicle project of its own, although we likely won’t see an actual car on the road for years to come, if ever. Talking to Australian publication Financial Review, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said he doesn’t know if Apple is making a car, but that he hopes the current rumors prove to be true. More →
Even the biggest Apple haters out there would have a tough time denying Steve Wozniak’s designs for the Apple I and the Apple II were nothing short of revolutionary in the development of person computers. With this in mind, you should really check out a new video that Bloomberg News has posted in which they give Wozniak an ancient Apple I computer and let him tinker with it while reminiscing about the design choices he made when he built the machine back in the 1970s.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told CNN Money in an interview that Apple could have done a better job of battling Samsung in past years by launching a big-screen iPhone earlier than it did. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are Apple’s first iPhones to tout significantly larger displays, with screens measuring 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, respectively, and the company is currently selling as many iPhone 6 units as it can make, according to its most recent quarterly earnings call.

Do you imagine Steve Wozniak smoked a lot of pot and made a lot of penis jokes in his youth? If so then you’ll think the casting choice for Woz’s role in Aaron Sorkin’s new Steve Jobs biopic is absolutely perfect. According to Variety, none other than Seth Rogen has been tapped to play Wozniak in the upcoming film, which we think is an inspired choice for the brilliant and often very amusing Apple cofounder. Christian Bale, who is best known for playing Batman in Gary Nolan’s highly acclaimed trilogy, will play opposite Rogen as Steve Jobs. More →
It’s amazing how quickly an iPhone with a big display can win someone back. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, who in the past has not been shy about criticizing Apple products while at the same time professing his love for rival products such as Android and the Microsoft Surface, now says that he’s getting an iPhone 6 and is dumping all of the Android phones he once praised.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, known for his candor when speaking about various Apple and non-Apple matters, talked with reporters and analysts at CeBIT 2014 last week, Times of India reports. Among other things, he said that he doesn’t think Tim Cook has to be fired, responding to one analyst who said the CEO should be punished for Apple’s stock dropping by 25% since October 2012. More →
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak recently sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan and spoke about a variety of topics, including the NSA spying controversy and whistleblower Edward Snowden. Wozniak noted that he rarely takes sides and instead likes to talk about what really happens. He compared Snowden to Daniel Ellsberg, who famously leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971, explaining that both leaks “changed my life.” Morgan pointed out that had inventors such as Wozniak not created computers, the government wouldn’t be “snooping around our affairs.” Wozniak noted that he does “feel a little guilty,” however “not totally.” More →
Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak had a quick chat with FayerWayer earlier this week, and the site asked him about a wide range of topics, including the new look of iOS 7 and the recent revelations about the NSA’s PRISM surveillance program. Wozniak’s most interesting comments, though, were about how cloud computing is slowly eroding the concept of owning content that we pay for, which in turn leaves us with less freedom than we used to have.

If you’re looking for an extremely cheap Christmas gift for someone you don’t particularly like, you could do worse than buying them an iPhone game featuring a gun-toting version of Apple (AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak. Vengeance: Woz With A Coz, the new game that pairs up Wozniak with “Machete” star Danny Trejo, is now available on the Apple App Store for just $0.99. The premise of the game is simple: Woz’s wife has been kidnapped by dastardly criminals and it’s your job to help him get her back. Making things even more enticing, it seems that Woz himself wrote the game’s “intriguing storyline,” so there’s really no excuse to avoid buying the game unless you’ve already completely drained your checking account from Black Friday shopping.
