Wozniak – “We’ve lost something we won’t get back”

Thu, Oct 6, 2011


Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, together with Steve Jobs helped change the course of personal computing forever.

Though Wozniak’s influence at Apple has been effectively non-existent since the mid 80’s, Woz is forever tied to Apple and is arguably, behind Jobs, the most well-known Apple figure in company history.

In an interview with the AP following Jobs’ passing at the age of 56, Woz said that the world has “lost something we won’t get back.”

“The way I see it, though,” Woz explained, “the way people love products he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world.”

Woz said that he last saw Jobs about three months ago, shortly after Jobs delivered the keynote address at this year’s WWDC event.

Wozniak, 61, said Jobs was a good husband and father and a great businessman who had an eye for details. He said Jobs was a good marketer and understood the benefits of technology…

According to Wozniak, Jobs told him around the time he left Apple in 1985 that he had a feeling he would die before the age of 40. Because of that, “a lot of his life was focused on trying to get things done quickly,” Wozniak said.

“I think what made Apple products special was very much one person, but he left a legacy,” Woz said.

Indeed he did.
