Steve Wozniak, who started Apple Inc. with high-school friend Steve Jobs in a California garage more than three decades ago, said news of his partner’s death struck him just like the shootings of John Lennon and John F. Kennedy.
Steve Jobs, who built the world’s most valuable technology company by creating devices that changed how people use electronics and revolutionized the computer, music and mobile-phone industries, died. He was 56.
Apple Inc. has kept its power to determine the course of consumer electronics even as it faces tougher competition in mobile phones and tablets, said Steve Wozniak, who co-founded the company with Steve Jobs in 1976.
Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak wants to become an Australian citizen and lists the government’s planned national broadband network as one of the factors behind his decision, the Australian Financial Review reported.
