Video: Woz playing Segway polo (and bonking pedestrian on head)

CNET News.com’s Daniel Terdiman found millionaire Steve Wozniak scooting around the polo field at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif., on April 22. So, this isn’t new, but it may be “new to you.”

CNET’s camera catches the Apple co-founder bonking a pedestrian inthe head/shoulder area with the polo ball.

  1. Recently while doing repairs on a small adventure-class cruise ship, the captain told me Woz is gay and used to book multiple rooms on one of the vessels, one filled with computers and several rooms for…..um, friends.

  2. “Woz was.”

    Sorry, but Woz IS and WILL BE. YOUR name will not be in the history books for ages to come – HIS WILL BE. YOU will be forgotten – HE WILL NOT. Woz made a MONUMENTAL contribution and fundamental change to the world as we know it. What he does now with his time and money is his choice – Woz is a good guy. Quit knockin’ him.

    LONG LIVE WOZ! (and the spirit of innovation for innovation’s sake – not profit. That will be known as part of his legacy)

    Small point: I believe people in the U.K. have a slightly different interpretation of “bonking”

  3. Woz is gay! Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Woz is gay!

    Well, he does use a Mac.

    I’m sure he’ll thank you for outing him, Dumb Blonde.

    Are all dumb blondes female and straight?

  4. Woz made a MONUMENTAL contribution and fundamental change to the world as we know it.

    A cheap plywood-case computer?

    A long-forgotten and decades-obsolete floppy disk controller?

    Woz will fade into history’s footnotes, like so many pioneers in countless other industries.

    And speaking of footnotes, I still don’t know WTF this has to do with the Mac.
    This site had better change to http://www.dailynews.com if there’s nothing even remotely Mac-related to run.

  5. Yo, channel Z,

    yea I’ve heard of geek cruises but that’s not this. This was high end adventure cruising and the Woz took them regularly and brought along a mountain of computer gear. The captain was quite emphatic. The whole topic came up as he was explaining about a lot of rich people who could have bought the ship but chose to ride instead and be catered to.

    Not that gay is bad, I like chicks!

    In all the Woz news I’d never heard mention of his orientation.

  6. Why are so many people getting so cinical, rude and just plain mean spirited on this site??? 2 years ago there wasn’t a fraction of the a__holes there are now. Is this who we are or is it just a sign of the times?

  7. Don’t bash Woz. How do you think the development of the Mac was funded? The Apple ][ sold well into the ’80s. It was the world’s first personal computer, designed by Woz, of course.

    Now it would have been been nice if he had stayed at Apple, but after his departure he became an educator and has contributed a lot to education.
