What I’m Reading……
Just finished reading this one from Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple. It is a
funny, sort of off the cuff account of his life from his childhood in the 1950’s and ’60’s on through the creation of Apple Computers and up until 2003.
For the most part it is quite humorous and personal, and I do find Woz to be a likable character. After all the Steve Jobs stuff it is nice to have an alternative account of some of Apple’s important events and contributions.
It is easy to read- but he does endeavor to enlighten us to some technical thought at times- yet the fact is Wozniak is unfairly forgotten in most people’s memories on the history of computers. HE invented the first usable personal computer. By himself. He Woz the man!
interresting tidbit- A creative genius Wozniak had a working VCR in 1974 long before commercial VCR’s were on the market…he taped Nixon’s resignation in August 1974.
