“The glorious thing about the current presidential campaign is that no candidate currently looks even vaguely presidential,” Chris Matyszczyk writes for CNET. “This means that we seek something different, something that doesn’t feel as if it’s part of the entrenched, ossified system.”
“Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. He seems moved by the independent senator from Vermont who’s vying for the Democratic nomination: Bernie Sanders,” Matyszczyk reports. “On Monday night Woz turned to Twitter and offered: ‘Down on Republicans and Democrats, #Bernie2016 #FeelTheBern.'”
“Perhaps the two enjoy a spiritual kinship,” Matyszczyk reports. “Sanders has described himself as a ‘socialist’ — or, as he once defined it, ‘democracy with a small ‘d.” Woz is known to have given early Apple employees shares, so that they could partake of any potential bounty… It’s not known whether Woz would be willing to campaign for Sanders, something that might be very useful in garnering support from the tech world.”

MacDailyNews Take: As always, we love Woz! He’s a sweet man. He’s a simple man. He’s a sweet, simple man.
His soft heart sometimes conflicted with his old partner, the late Steve Jobs. It was evident when Wozniak wanted to give away one of his first Apple creations to a local teacher. Jobs wouldn’t allow it, so Wozniak said he paid for the computer and gave it to the teacher. Some things never change. — Colin Pope, Austin Business Journal, March 25, 2014
