And what an episode it is! Hear Woz’s thoughts on Apple’s new Maps app; his opinions on Apple’s shiny new iPhone 5; and of course, the hot topic on everyone’s mind: EarPods.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak predicts that storage array and spinning disk vendors will soon face a RIM-like decline due to the rise of server-attached flash drives. Wozniak, visiting Australia in his role as chief scientist for enterprise storage vendor Fusion IO, told a gathering of Australian media yesterday that mechanical storage was no longer fast enough for use as primary storage.
I love when Steve Wozniak says things. He's usually hilariously critical of Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Jobs. So I was excited to see him finally comment on Apple's controversial new Maps app that does away with Google Maps data. (My colleague Jay Yarow emailed Woz last week, but Woz had only used Apple Maps for less than a day and said he couldn't comment.)
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak flew to Australia to be among the first in the world to get his (he was seventh in line at the Apple store in Brisbane). Silicon Valley tech blogger Robert Scoble once again stood in line at the Palo Alto Apple store for more than 24 hours to get his – but he dutifully posted several articles and talked with a number of startup representatives while he was there.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has listed the rollout of a national broadband network as one of the reasons he wants to become an Australian. Mr Wozniak told The Australian Financial Review in Sydney that he had spoken to Communications Minister Stephen Conroy and was in support of the federal government’s fibre rollout.
What impresses us, though, is Steve's business card. It's a solid peice of etched metal, each one seemingly individually numbered, and thin enough to also be somewhat lethat if gripped a little too tight. Nonetheless, this is easily one of the coolest business cards we've ever seen, and a sure way to make sure you're not forgotten in a hurry.
It is perhaps fitting that students at a school focused on technology, science and math met on their first day of school one of the pioneers of 20th and 21st century technology. Apple Computer co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak paid a visit to Tech Valley High School on Thursday, touring the school, meeting students, faculty and fellow business supporters of TVHS, and answering questions during a 90-minute stop at the East Greenbush campus.
