Here are some highlights of Wozniak's interview with The Globe and Mail:
On the switch to Intel processors: "It's like consorting with the enemy. We've had this long history of saying the enemy is the big black-hatted guys, and they kind of represent evil. We are different, and by being different we're better. All of a sudden we're the same … Read more
When Apple Computer this week sent out an invitation to a "fun" announcement at the company's headquarters, it may well have been handing out crack to rumor junkies.
