[ATTACH=RIGHT]17940[/ATTACH]Steve Wozniak (or Woz to his friends and admirers) not only founded one of the most important (technology-wise) and influential (culturally) companies to date but he also practically invented the personal computer. His design, that of interfacing with a computer using a keyboard and screen, is still the standard today. Before Woz conceived the PC people would use toggle switches for input and look at indicator lights to determine the output. Computers were for professionals and hobbyists only, they were not practical, not for personal use and certainly not affordable. The importance of the Apple I’s design was its usability …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]20573[/ATTACH][URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/apple/apple-hardware-and-devices/interviews/323685"]Super engineer and friend of DaniWeb, Steve Wozniak[/URL], told Reuters on Friday that he would consider returning to Apple, or more accurately returning to an active role at Apple if asked.

[ATTACH=RIGHT]18613[/ATTACH]The term Net Neutrality has been the subject of heavy discussion for the past several years. The freedom to go where and when we want to on the internet is about to slip away. Big telecoms and internet giants like AT&T, Comcast, Verizon, Time Warner and even Google have met with the government and came up with a set of rules that will allow them to regulate and prioritize what we see on the internet (to say the least). Yesterday Steve Wozniak, the engineer that co-founded Apple Computer, Inc. wrote an open letter the FCC imploring them to keep the …
