What a long, strange trip it was. Last night. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was feted with a surprise party for his upcoming 62nd birthday in San Francisco late Wednesday. Several hundred friends, former business associates, assorted hangers-on and others squeezed into the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to toast one of the nicest guys in Silicon Valley history. The ever-gracious Woz put up with some strange shenanigans, including an impromptu quasi-strip routine from Big Al (no one seemed to know who he was) and a long promotional video for DNA technology. There was some corporate tie-in that few paid attention to. Despite the distractions, he hung around and took photos with anyone who asked. That included a camera-shy Drew Carey, who looked very fit in a suit and tie. See photos of: Drew Carey

Q What are your pet road peeves -- the things other drivers do that annoy you most? A I dislike it when drivers slow down to a near-stop as they look for particular streets, addresses or businesses. I also disdain drivers who pull into a business driveway and take forever to complete their pull-in while I sit behind them in a traffic lane that should be moving.

Cult of Mac finds that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is once again praising products that are directly competing with the wares of his former company. In this particular case, Woz is heaping praise on Microsoft’s Surface tablet and generally showing enthusiasm for Microsoft’s consumer-oriented product line. “I do see a lot of stuff coming out from Microsoft in the consumer arena,” Wozniak said. “A lot of people like to say that Microsoft’s had no successes in the last so many years, but the Xbox is a success, and certainly Kinect… I do want to see the Surface, I want to use one, I want to own one.”

More than six months after it was released in select theaters, Robert Cringely’s “lost” Steve Jobs interview is now available in the U.S. iTunes. “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview” consists of footage originally filmed in 1995 for the PBS series “Triumph of the Nerds.” Only 10 minutes of the interview was actually used in the series, while the rest of it was assumed to be lost. It was later found in the director’s garage and the original tape was cleaned up and restored.
