"The rewards are in your head. The reward is invisible. Itis what you like to do," said Mr. Wozniak. He described how he was lucky enough to live in a time when home computer designs could be done by one smart person. Other people who worked with him on the Apple II shared his passion.

The story has over a dozen tidbits of observations and wisdom accumulated during Mr. Wozniakis career. Amongst them, he was careful to point out that he never, never cut in line to buy an iPhone.

Also notable was the idea that brute force with a computer doesnit always work. "I learned something when I was young," he said. "The speed of the computer isnit enough. You need a good approach and good thinking."
