“Steve Wozniak, the man who co-founded Apple Inc. with Steve Jobs, is still tinkering and falling in love with gadgets,” Silvia Ascarelli reports for MarketWatch. “He took questions on Reddit Wednesday.”
“Three new technologies he loves: Facebook Inc.’s Oculus Rift, Amazon.com Inc.’s Amazon Echo and self-driving cars,” Ascarelli reports. “What he thinks of Tim Cook: ‘Very approving.'”
“New hardware, new software ‘and nothing’s letting me down,’ he said. Plus Cook ‘is acknowledging the employees of Apple and the customers of Apple as real people,'” Ascarelli reports. “No surprise that he sides with Cook in the battle with the Justice Department over unlocking the San Bernardino, Calif., shooter’s iPhone. (Cue shoutout to the Bill of Rights.) But perhaps surprisingly, he said it’s about more than just personal liberties This is the story he told to illustrate his point: ‘Twice in my life I wrote things that could have been viruses. I threw away every bit of source code. I just got a chill inside. These are dangerous, dangerous things, and if some code gets written in an Apple product that lets people in, bad people are going to find their way to it, very likely.'”
