Things may have changed a lot in Silicon Valley since Steve Wozniak first conceived the idea the Apple computer, but he hasn't lost any of his fervent enthusiasm for new technology.
Mashable sat down with the Apple co-founder this past weekend at Silicon Valley's first Comic Con for a wide-ranging conversation covering everything from his trouble remembering faces (and how augmented reality might eventually help) to the state of Silicon Valley today to his favorite apps.
After its smash first year in 2016, Silicon Valley Comic Con is back. The three-day geek fest kicks off Friday in Downtown San Jose and runs through Sunday April 23, and legendary Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak will once more be presiding.

The Archway’s exclusive interview with Apple Co-founder, Steve Wozniak The first encounter with the Co-Founder of Apple was remarkable to say the least. After introducing himself to the welcoming committee at the Chace Wellness Center, Steve Wozniak proceeded to hand everyone around him his business card. But what was so special about the card, besides the fact that it divulged his personal information? The card was stainless steel. “It makes for a handy tool on airplanes when I need to cut food, especially steak!” Steve Wozniak, for those who don’t know, was the Co-Founder of Apple. He was the engineer who originally built the Apple I and II computers and helped launch the company with Steve Jobs. Along the way, Wozniak has also been a programmer, engineer, entrepreneur, businessperson, inventor, computer scientist, scientist, actor, film producer, and writer.
It’s hard to believe, but Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had not met each other in person until Wednesday evening in Seattle.
More than 40 years after founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak has a lot to say about the early days of the world’s richest company—and about technology, learning, and being a born engineer.
To say he’s an icon in the worlds of engineering, design, and manufacturing is an understatement. But how else does one summarize someone who helped shape the computing industry with his design of Apple’s first line of products, the Apple I and II, not to mention co-founded the groundbreaking company, and who went on to create a career and life that spans innovations and honors including receiving the National Medal of Technology; founding the first programmable universal remote control company, CL 9; founding a wireless hardware location finder company, Wheels of Zeus; and who has given generously of his time and resources to not-for-profits, including teaching computer classes in local elementary schools.
