But without Steve Wozniak, there would be no iPad. There would be no Apple as we know it today.
Wow, the depths to which Gizmodo’s ignorance runs is deeper than the Mariana trench.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: Steve Jobs would be millionaire (actually, billionaire) even if he’d never met Woz. Meanwhile, had Woz not been dragged kicking and screaming into Apple he would’ve been laid off at HP as soon as they could no longer sell calculators at $400 a pop. Remember, HP wasn’t interested in Woz’s computer designs.
The idea that Jobs wouldn’t be changing industries if he hadn’t met Woz is laughable. And the idea that Woz would be a success on his own is equally laughable. All you have to do is look at what each has accomplished without the other. Even the brain-dead staff at Gizmodo could figure it out of they wanted to, but that wouldn’t make what passes as a “story” over there.
As for Woz, I don’t care what one thinks of his engineering skills, he’s an ass for wearing that t-shirt.
