Wozniak heading to NZ

Even with a price tag from $895, tech heads will no doubt flock to see Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Auckland on May 21.

Wozniak will be in town to present a seminar called The Apple Story: Disruptive Innovation, Inspiration and Entrepreneurial Wizardry.

Woz will share historic recollections of Apple's rise at the half-day event, as well as practical and philosophical insights that made the Apple dream a reality, its fundamental business philosophy and Steve Jobs’ legacy.

"Apple is the exception," he says. "Apple is coming out with totally new disruptive technologies that take the world in a new direction all the time, where normally those avenues are closed off. So this is a very unusual story."
