They started Apple Computer together in 1976 with nothing. Now, 35 years later, Steve Wozniak can reflect on just how his friend and fellow computer geek Steve Jobs changed the world.

Jobs, who died last week at 56, had a beautiful mind that allowed him to see the future, and shape it, says Wozniak.
