I might never wash my hand again. Yea, ok, not really but it was freaking awesome. To the max. I prefer Steve Wozniak over Steve Jobs. For one, Woz isn’t a complete asshole. For another, he’s a Geek Guru, a Nerd God. The man designed, built and programmed an electronic computer (like, the first one) with his bare hands and got stinking rich from it.
