Steve Wozniak told Tech Valley High School students today that he’d rather be known for helping people than starting a computer company. Even if that computer company is Apple Inc.

The US Festival was an event that had a staggering impact on the world of rock and roll. Despite only existing for two short years, it would help to lay the groundwork for the modern festivals (Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Coachella, etc.) which we enjoy now.

Computerworld Australia - Christie's today said it will auction off an Apple 1 computer from the firm's first batch, and predicted the machine will sell for as much as $126,000 when it hits the block in October.

According to Christie's, there are about 50 surviving Apple-1 computers.

Steve Wozniak, legendary Apple co-founder and personal computer guru, virtually single-handedly designed the hardware system for the world’s first user-friendly home computer, the Apple I, and later the Apple II. Wozniak is coming to speak at the Mondavi Center at UC Davis at 8 p.m. on Oct. 29, 2012.

HE WAS the behind-the-scenes genius who used to let Steve Jobs do all the talking. But, as Stephen McGinty discovered, Apple’s other Steve – in Edinburgh later this week – has plenty to say himself about the future of computers.

Bear with me here, because the mention of someone from Apple doesn’t necessarily mean a flame war immediately. Gizmodo recently asked their readers what the worst technology gadget they had ever purchased was, and if you dig through the comments you can find Apple honcho Steve Wozniak weighing in that the HTC Thunderbolt was right at the top of his list.
