Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has told USA Today that Apple will still be around in 2075 – alongside Google and Facebook.

Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911). Look at Apple’s cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075). The same goes for Google and Facebook.

He made the prediction ahead of the Silicon Valley Comic Con, whose theme is ‘The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075?’ and said that he and Steve Jobs made that assumption from the start …

It’s been an interesting election cycle to say the least, and now Pokémon Go is entering the fray. The presumptive nominees for both major political parties today addressed the game that’s seemingly taking over the internet, both attempting to use the game to lure in potential voters and talk job creation.

Steve Wozniak one of three judges of tech company competition, prize is one-on-one time with him

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been announced as one of three judges of Talent Unleashed, a competition to identify the best tech companies in five categories. Fellow judges are Virgin founder Richard Branson and Facebook VP Nicola Mendelsohn.

The Talent Unleashed Awards are on the hunt for ground breaking technology superstars across five global categories across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe and the UK. Celebrating today’s passionate leaders, tomorrows change makers, bold innovation and game changing ideas.

There are five categories, including Best Start-up (Social Impact), Best Start-up (Tech Innovation) and Best Digital SME.

The prize is one-on-one time with Woz, but as this is described as time with him ‘at an exclusive cocktail party,’ it’s not clear that this is the kind of consultancy input entrants might hope for.

Woz retains an honorary position with Apple, but does not play an active role. He does, though, sometimes comment on the company, siding with Apple against the FBI but expressing concern at the complexity of the Apple Watch line-up.

Appearing on Conan last night, Woz said that he sided with Apple in the FBI fight, first because he’s always been strong on human rights, as one of the founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, but because governments shouldn’t be able to tell manufacturers to make their products insecure at a time when security is so important.

He argued that there is absolutely no reason to think the FBI would learn anything from the iPhone in question.

They picked a lame case. They picked the lamest case you ever could […]

[For the shooters’ own phones] Verizon turned over all the phone records, all the SMS messages. So they want to take this other phone, that the two didn’t destroy, which was a work phone, and it’s so lame and worthless to expect something’s on it and get Apple to expose it.

Revealing that he had once written something that could have acted as a Macintosh virus, he said he’d thrown away every line of code because he was so scared of what might happen if the code got out …

Interviewed by Bloomberg, Steve Wozniak reiterated his comments about the difference between fact and fiction in the Steve Jobs movie, saying that almost nothing shown actually happened, but that it was about personalities, not facts.

It’s a great movie. If Steve Jobs had been making movies, this is the quality it would have had.

Asked about the accusation made by Tim Cook and other Apple execs that movies about Jobs were opportunistic and didn’t accurately portray the man, Woz said that the movie showed Jobs at an earlier time in his life …  expand full story
