Wozniak (born August 11, 1950), known
as "Woz", is an American pioneer of the
personal computer revolution of the 1970s.
Wozniak is an inventor, electronics
engineer, and computer programmer who
single-handedly developed the 1976
Apple I, the computer that launched
Apple. He primarily designed the 1977
Apple II while Steve Jobs oversaw the
development of its unusual case and Rod
Holt developed the unique power supply
Steve Wozniak and Andy Hertzfeld at an
Apple Computer Users Group meeting in
1985 One thing Wozniak wanted to do was
teach elementary school because of the
important role teachers play in students'
lives. Eventually, he did teach computer
classes to children from the fifth through
ninth grades and teachers as well.
Wozniak remains an employee of Apple and
receives a stipend, estimated to be
$120,000 per year. He is also an Apple
shareholder. He also maintained a fine
acquaintance with Steve Jobs until Jobs'
death in October 2011,although, in 2006,
Wozniak stated that he and Jobs were not
as close as they used to be.
In a 2013 interview, Wozniak said that the
Macintosh "failed" under Steve Jobs, and
that it was not until Jobs left that it
became a success. Jobs called the Apple Lisa
group, the team that had kicked Jobs out,
idiots for making the Lisa computer too
expensive. To compete with the Lisa, Jobs
and his new team produced a cheaper
computer, one that, according to Wozniak,
was "weak", "lousy" and "still at a
fairly high price". "He made it by cutting
the RAM down, by forcing you to swap disks
here and there", says Wozniak. He
attributed the eventual success of the
Macintosh to people like John Sculley
"who worked to build a Macintosh market when
the Apple II went away".
Wozniak founded a new venture called CL
9, which developed and brought the first
programmable universal remote control to
market in 1987.
In 2001, Wozniak founded Wheels of Zeus
(WOZ), to create wireless GPS technology
to "help everyday people find everyday
things much more easily." In 2002, he

Networks, Inc., joining Ellen Hancock,
Gil Amelio, Mike Connor, and Wheels of Zeus
co-founder Alex Fielding, all Apple
alumni, in a new telecommunications
venture. Later the same year he joined
the Board of Directors of Danger, Inc., the
maker of the Hip Top (a.k.a. Side Kick
In 2006, Wheels of Zeus was closed, and
Wozniak founded Acquicor Technology, a
holding company for acquiring technology
companies and developing them, with Apple
alumnae Ellen Hancock and Gil Amelio.
In March 2006, Wozniak attended the FIRST
National Competition in Atlanta to show
