Slideshow: An insight into the Woz

Apple co-founder and icon Steve Wozniak visited Australia last week to deliver a speech on how technology will continue to enhance our lives. Woz, as he is affectionately known as, is not shy in coming forward. On any topics. Here we gathered a collection of bite sized snippets that we found to be insightful and down right amusing.

Building technology for humans: When we came out with the Mac in the early days we sat down and made so much effort tailoring the technology to adapt to ways humans already adapt. For example every human already had a desktop so we called the screen a desktop... What should icons look like? We spent so much effort to putting the human over the technology. We built extra code into the technology to make it work the way a human wants to as a human being.
