    Steve Wozniak, or “Woz” as he is affectionately known by his fans, is famous for being the co-founder of Apple along with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne. While Wozniak hasn’t been actively involved in the company’s operations since he left in 1985, this outspoken Silicon Valley icon is always happy to share his thoughts on Apple’s latest products or offer his suggestions about what he believes the company should be doing. However, unlike most employees of Apple who tend to stick closely to the company’s official talking points, Wozniak is not afraid to offer his honest opinions on the company he helped found or the products that it makes. Here are five memorable quotes from Steve Wozniak on everything from the Macintosh and the iPad, to the inaccurate myths about Apple’s founding and his relationship with Steve Jobs.

I guess what I'm saying is there's so much more to "The Woz" than I ever knew, and it was fun getting to know you a little better. Seeing your highly energetic presentation in person, I enjoyed the last question from an audience member.

    Perhaps you don't know John Draper aka "Captain Crunch" but, if you're using a MacBook or an iPhone today, it's because of him. He and his blue box were a fundamental inspiration for Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak in making Apple. He's now in trouble and needs our help. Woz has written this fascinating article so you can understand how he influenced them both and how much we all owe him. Please read it and make a contribution. Even while the goal has already been surpassed, every dollar counts towards his future and total recovery.—JD

    A US auction house is preparing to bid off a piece of Apple Computer history that could fetch more than $500,000. Bonhams will auction off a rare Apple I system handmade by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak when the biz was in its infancy. According to the auction house, the model was assembled by Woz in 1976 as part of an order for 50 systems by local store Byte Shop. Touted at the time as a complete PC, the Apple I would today be considered little more than a DIY kit; customers had to supply their own case, keyboard, power supply and monitor.
