However, Art Attack felt insensitive to have missed Woz's 60th and thought, we could throw the guy a memory stick and celebrate a little. If Steve Jobs was our former partner, watching his total domination over the world might give us the occasional case of the Green Monster, and who doesn't want to be celebrated?

    To those of you who scoffed at Steve Wozniak when he said that machines will one day take over as superior beings, leaving us humans as the "dogs of the house," take note: It seems Woz' vision is very much becoming a reality for some Foxconn workers, who are set to be replaced by robots over the next three years.
