Wozniak was the brain, Jobs was the face.

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.

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 :P PC for life!

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 .

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Back when Silicon Valley was about innovation and not about making a small number of people wealthy (at the expense of the employees) via smoke-and-mirror VC games. As he said, Jobs switched into full sociopath mode when the money came in. It was the beginning of the end.
Heffsta02 (1 month ago)
fuck Apple, but you can tell this guy absolutely loved his creation, and was passionate about the work he did.I dig that.
Seargent Gaming (1 month ago)
Shame he never got enough credit and Jobs always steal his spotlight. He was a man of true mankind, being happy at what he does, unlike Jobs who went away with fame and fortune. Hopefully one day he could control Apple and return its true shine

The Woz is an amazing human being, and he understands how life works as well as computers. It makes me very happy that despite 'staying at the bottom of the org chart' he was still able to become independently wealthy so that he could pursue his technical interests without worrying about putting food on the table. It is ridiculous that most of the engineers who build the things that literally run the entire world and make everyone's modern life possible are somehow denigrated and treated like disposable workers on an assembly line. We would all be better off if the value of their work was actually paid fairly and they were able to retire early to pursue creating new things.

I admire both the Steves because, they both helped each other in providing the world a new computing platform and becoming wealthy within a short period of time!! But, if Steve Wozniak did everything to give something new to the world, Steve Jobs did everything for profit!! It's only because of Steve Jobs that Apple products were something that only the wealthy could imagine of buying!! It's still the same today!! This does not bring about any revolution. Unless and until any new revolutionary technology is accessible and affordable especially for students, they are simply not worth inventing!! Luckily for us, other companies were quick to bring and market affordable computing to us and now we all can use and enjoy its benefits!! If computing was a monopoly for Apple even today then, it would still have been only a rich person's or family's privilege!! This is the only reason why I have never admired and still don't admire Apple or any of its products. They put money in front of everything.

Jobs was only famous because he was a CEO of a company that was tech. Than a revolution happened, with tech and then boom he's famous.

wwhat i wonder is why people adored steve jobs and not wozniak, And if computers didnt exist would we still and nuclear and all these wireless weapons
Mike SpinstoWin (2 months ago)
Woz said he wanted the chips in a perfect position, according to the Jobs bio it was him because of his father's insisting even the stuff you don't see needs to be perfect.

An' 'fess up, Steve, you made a bunch of 'em with fancy teak sides for the Fifth Avenue crowd, Al Toffler, Amitai Etzioni, and folks like that -- talking to each other over a pioneer bulletin board paid for by the National Science Foundation or somebody. A bit later I was ARPAnet user number 300, call that !300!, lots of bangs in my address because this was pre-TCP/IP, and I bumped into Etzioni on the Net, as we called it. We didn't have chat programs, but if you saw somebody entering a note on a news echo you could often get into a conversation with them posting alternately. I was working for the MIT AI Lab, but commuted from Washington, D.C. so I was on the Net at something like 55 or 240 or some very low number Baud, using an Execuport, a $4,500, 20-pound, audio coupler that you stuck a telephone handset into. Etzioni had published an article in Harpers a couple of weeks earlier on the subject of Memory. He had said you never forget anything. For instance, he would never forget that the German prepositions that take the dative or accusative or some damn case were "aus, auser, bei, mit, mach, seit, and zu." It was a great pleasure to be able to type in to him, "You missed von." After the NSF experiment was over, Toffler stopped using the thing. He didn't even like the Electric Pencil, the word processor you had given him. He could see the future, right? "A flood of junk," he said. That was 1971.

Apparently the secret to longevity, is the repeated application of lead based solder, held between the lips.

Its a shame that Steve Wozniak doesn’t get that much recognition. He’s the real brains behind Apple, Steve Jobs was just a person who was able to sell products and became the face of the company. Granted he was very smart in his own right. But with out Steve Wozniak, there would be no Apple Computers.
