It wouldn't be an Apple product launch without a Steve Wozniak sighting, would it?
The Apple co-founder was sighted--and subsequently interviewed by Shira Lazar at What's Trending--at the Westfield Mall in Century City, Calif. today waiting in line for his new iPad. And as one might expect, Woz had some nice things to say about his upcoming purchase.
"I have had an iPad with a low amount of memory and I will finally be able to put a lot more movies on my iPad because I'm getting one with the higher amount of memory," Wozniak told Lazar. "Also, I have a number of phones that have the Verizon 4G and the LTE system and it's fast. For downloading stuff on your iPad when you're not on Wi-Fi, it's going to be a wonderful thing."
Wozniak has become a staple at just about every major Apple product launch, waiting in line with consumers who are looking to get their hands on the company's latest and greatest devices. In most cases, Wozniak stands in line at an Apple Store in San Francisco, but he's holding a keynote address later today in Los Angeles, which prompted him to head to the Westfield Mall location.
During his interview with Lazar, Wozniak also took the opportunity to mention his good friend and fellow Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, saying that the company must carry on the legacy he left.
"Steve was really responsible for setting up a company, a culture, a method of developing products that continue to create great products," Wozniak said. "If I ever see them not great, then I'll be screaming. That will be a sad day."
When that store's doors open at 8 a.m., Wozniak will actually be the second person to walk through. His wife, Suzanne, he says, is actually first in line.
