Got to briefly meet Steve Wozniak as he was doing some press for Dancing with the Stars. I showed him my Dell Mini 9 with OS X Leopard installed on it (and an Apple sticker sloppily applied over the Dell logo.

He said, “Oh my god, that is so COOL!”

And: “Is that really the color you wanted?”

Then he graciously signed it. I then ran away and giggled for about 45 minutes.

Woz is lovable.

    Oh Steve Wozniak, way to be the Apple founder named Steve who doesn’t come across as a jerk

    At last, someone from the high ups who knows how too appreciate compliment by imitation. Woz, is the man.

    Lucky he talked to nice Steve. Jobs has eye lasers, and they are powered by pure disgust.

  6. GeekMan says:

    Awesome. I hope grouchy Steve doesn’t get too upset with eccentric Steve for such validation.

    The new hard drive and wireless card for my Aspire One are on their way. Soon I will be happily hacking…

    Personally, I’d prefer an apple netbook that is easily upgradable by the consumer and made of standard, easy-to-replace parts.

    No superpowers needed, just pure native Intel Mac OS on a plain-vanilla PC.

    He comes off as so genuine and cool that it kills me to watch him get torn up (physically) on Dancin’.

    The Judges have obviously had it with him, so the kick timer ticketh.

    Dude is still a true geek. Respect.

    C’mon Apple. For once buck the bucking the trend habit and make one of these with cojones.

    And an optical drive.

    And built in 3G.

    Out of monoblock Aluminium.

    With 10+ hour battery life.

    And super powers…

    Pretty please?

    Apple will still be cool… so long as Woz lives.
