In the beginning, the true beginning of the personal computer revolution, there were two Steves: Steve Jobs, the iconic Apple Computer CEO who still strides the corporate stage of iPods and mega-deals today — and — Steve Wozniak, the cult icon, the true geek, the engineer, the guy who actually got it done.

Steve Wozniak — "Woz" as he was known — is the man who created, who built, the world's first personal computer qith his own hands, and his own world-changing computer geek gusto.

Jobs may be the face of Apple cool today but "Woz" was the soul of the machine. Now he's talking, about life and computers and world-changing glory days.
