Three Things About Woz

Three things I’ve learned from listening to the audiobook version of iWoz:

1. Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs’ first money-making venture involved selling blue boxes for the purposes of phone phreaking.

2. Woz is a huge numbers nerd, to the point that his greatest goal in life was to have a phone number with seven straight digits that were the same.

3. Steve Jobs was kind of an ass sometimes (at least from Woz’s perspective).

4 (bonus!). Woz is, himself, a bit cocky. But I still worship the ground he walks on.

5 (bonus #2!!). Somehow I didn’t know that Woz was responsible for “Breakout.”

And: the top 10 videos about Steve Wozniak.
