As the co-founder of Apple with Steve Jobs, one would think Steve Wozniak has used every product the company has to offer. But there is one he won't touch: the Apple stock app. It's not that there's anything wrong with the app, he just doesn't want to obsess over the roller-coaster ride that is the stock market.

Instead, he wants to be remembered for the quality of his work, and not his achievements. Following is a transcript of this video.
