Steve wozniak dating
I had given it to everyone at our club before Jobs even knew that it existed. See, I never look at money and bank accounts, [and] I never like to deal with money. The idea is that you can learn the important things that apply to technology work and not have to learn other little stuff that does not interest you. Then, there was a spin-off called Primary Data Optimse storage and it recently folded. My philosophy was well understood when I was 20 years old, even before we started Apple.
He came to town, I took him to the club where I was a hero, showing off my computer every two weeks, and showing off the formula for the personal computer. He never treated me with the disrespect he would treat other people because I came at a different point in his life and I was also a key engineer in his life and success. I would never do anything that would compete with Apple. I think my accountant said that what I take home is under a 0 a week. I also run two companies — one was Fusion-io, a notable leader in changing data centres from hard disks to solid state disks. I also put on the Silicon Valley Comic Con and the Tokyo Comic Con. At first I wouldn’t accept the big money until it was clear that I would do only the engineering. He did not have much to do with Apple in the first 10 years until he returned, not until the i Pod actually.
But, in classic Woz fashion, he never got around to it. Techies have been organizing online campaigns to support him.
He hasn’t been actively involved in running Apple for decades, but Steve Wozniak — popularly known as Woz, and the man who engineered Apple 1, the first home computer with a keyboard and screen — still gets questioned about the tech giant that he co-founded with close friend Steve Jobs way back in 1976. Pankaj Doval and Surojit Gupta caught up with Woz — who wore his customary sneakers with a business suit — for an in-depth interview on the sidelines of the ET Global Business Summit in New Delhi. We talked about different types of counter-culture. The two of us played a couple of amazing pranks, and some that did not quite come off.
Legend has it that in the early days Jobs worshiped Woz, who is a few years older and even as a teenager had gained a reputation as an electronics wizard.But that's not such an asset when you're casting about for something to do with the last two thirds of your life.Some tech prodigies, like Marc Andreessen of Netscape, go on to start more successful companies and generate even more wealth.And Jobs said we should start a company — not to build a computer but to build one small part of it called the PC board. Eventually, we ended up building complete computer boards with all the chips and making a little bit of money. He said that he wasn’t going to live much longer, and I thought he was being metaphorical — we never live as much as we want to. I am the only person who has had a paycheck every week since the first day we started the company. There were a couple of times I wanted to do some startups. I wouldn’t have to do business because it is a part of life that I don’t like. The i Pod and i Phone changed the world and those were his Apple tools.Before we ever shipped that product, I had designed my Apple 2 computer, [and] totally owned it. I thought he was just sick and tired, and wanted to take time off and rest. At one time, I wanted to go back to college and get my degree. I got my degree, I put on a concert, and then I came back to Apple as an engineer pretty quickly. Then in 1986, I wanted to do a startup to make a universal remote control. Until then, he had done the marketing of the Apple 2 computer.
