Steve Wozniak was spotted last night outside of a mall in L.A. waiting in line for the new iPad just like everyone else. He had been there since noon waiting in the line he started, with his wife. For those of you who aren’t familiar Steve Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs and helped create the very first Apple computers.
This is a tradition for Wozniak. Every time Apple releases a new product he goes down to the nearest store and waits in line. Certainly Steve doesn’t have to wait in line. He has the power to just get one, probably even pre-release. So why wait in line?
“Nobody need to wait in line. You can pre-order… But I’d rather be there genuine like the real people. I want to be one of the people lined up and wait all night. Apple’s just that important to so many of us.”
“My wife was the first, I was the second. We came at about noon. We’re used to Northern California where the stores lines start early,” he told What’s Trending. “It’s become a ritual almost because I’ve done it so many times.”
Is this guy humble or what??? Pretty cool.
