Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak in Line for iPad 3: VIDEO

Wozniak

Steve Wozniak, who started Apple with Steve Jobs in a garage, likes to wait in line for Apple products. But an L.A. reporters was surprised to see him check in on Foursquare at a mall in Century City because he's usually up in the Bay Area.

So she headed over to interview him and the surprised fanboys in sleeping bags next to him.

“When we started, we knew that the world was going to change in a lot of ways. A lot of things that used to be mechanical were going to become electronic. We didn’t have any idea what this new revolution with mobile and smartphones starting with the iPhone. It’s really a computer in your hand. Then when the app store came I found that my life is driven by these apps… We knew it was a revolution but we didn’t know it was going to be this intense, this major once chips could put an entire computer on one chip.”

“I try not to [think of Steve Jobs while standing in line]. I have more of a connection to Steve Jobs than the average person… It’s not bittersweet at all. There are still great products coming out. Steve was really responsible for setting up a company, a culture, a method of developing products that continue to create great products. If I ever see them not great, then I’ll be screaming. That will be a sad day.”

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Yeah, because he didn't know it was possible to order on-line without having to stand in line... Stupid publicity stunt.

  2. it isnt a publicity stunt. He >likes< to do it. Its like when actors go see their movies at normal theaters... to connect with the fans. I think its a good thing to do!

  3. One way or the other, it is an amusing and positive PR stunt.

  4. I HATE and LOATH apple devices, but the Woz is great. He genuinely likes technology, be it Apple or not. He goes to other companies keynotes and loves Android devices. He isnt corporate, deluded or self righteous unlike this dead co-founder friend or that guy that designs all that dull Apple rubbish.

  5. That's kind of sad. He was never the same after that plane crash.
