Steve Wozniak is insane, but I love him.
There’s a fun interview of Steve Wozniak, co-creator of Apple computers — perhaps you’ve heard of them? — by Dan Lyons at Newsweek, because with the impending release of the Apple iPad this Saturday, everybody has to bait those links, and what better way to do that if you have no iPad-related information than to sit down with the tech industry’s William Shatner?
During the interview, Woz puts his finger on why the iPad is so goddamn amazing:
But the iPad simplifies things. It’s like a restart. We all say we want things to be simpler. All of a sudden we have this simple thing.
And Woz also lets loose with an exclusive tip on how to double your iPhone’s battery life and enable multitasking on the iPhone:
I just have two iPhones, so if the battery runs down on the first one, I can use the other. And if I’m talking on one, I can use the other one to look something up. You would not believe how much use I get out of that.
You’ve got to love that insane little bastard.
