Four decades ago, he almost single-handedly kickstarted the PC revolution, co-founding one of the world's largest corporations. Will the technology he helped create liberate humanity, or will it make us more isolated, more addicted to our own enslavement? Is there a secret to innovation and what is The Next Big Thing? Apple co-founder and IT guru Steve Wozniak joins Oksana to mull over these issues.

iOS developers in and around London might want to take note: Steve Wozniak will be the keynote speaker for Apps World Europe on October 23rd.

Apple co-founder and EA founder to offer their unique insights at conference on October 22nd-23rd. The fourth Apps World Europe event takes place at Earls Court 2 this month, attracting more than 8,000 delegates during the two-day conference.

Steve Wozniak wants computers to be more human – or at least more people-friendly. He came to this epiphany while writing himself a note on an early computerized tablet.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell held an hour-long talk at the C2SV Technology Conference which MacRumors attended today in San Jose, CA, with the two speaking about a variety of topics including reminiscing about Steve Jobs and the early days of Apple.

“You probably already have the next Steve Jobs working for you.” Amazon’s Jeff Bezos says it’s not him. Oracle’s Larry Ellison races boats and sells databases, not SL500s and smartphones. And Google’s Larry Page? Well… he’s just too darn celestially smart.

If Silicon Valley had a Mt. Rushmore, you could do worse than chisel the form out of the photo op that erupted Wednesday when a few of Apple’s earliest employees (think single-digit employee numbers) stopped by the Computer History Museum to check out the resurrection of a rare Mac prototype.

The Apple Mac 1 Computer is a truly rare thing to see after it was discontinued in 1977, and now having only 6 working Mac 1 computers currently in the world.  You can imagine how much these rare antique computers are worth, but when one of them is signed by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, then you can see why someone bought it for over 500,000 euros in Germany earlier this year.

Steve ‘The Woz’ Wozniak is the man who revolutionised the Personal Computing industry by single-handedly creating Apple I & II. What’s the next big thing in technology and what was his relationship with Steve Jobs like? Apple Co-founder, Steve Wozniak tells us more.
