Apple's Two Steves Are In The News This Weekend

Apple's Two Steves Are In The News This Weekend

Apple (ticker: AAPL) co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak made headlines for entirely different reasons this weekend.

A job application in 1973 from Jobs, who co-founded Apple in 1976 with Wozniak, was listed by RR Auction. The handwritten is noteworthy for its misspellings and scant details: He lists his address simply as “reed college” (the school is in Portland, Ore.) and work experience at “Hewitt-Packard.”

The Boston-based auction house expects to fetch $50,000 for the application. Jobs passed away  in 2011.

Half a world away, Wozniak used the Economic Times Global Business Summit in Delhi to excoriate President Donald Trump.

“I cannot stand Donald Trump,” Woz said. “The way he treats people is very negative. I may like his policies, but from now on I will make sure I never attend any event where members of his family are present.”

Rarely at a loss for words, the 67-year-old Wozniak weighed in on Jobs, whom he said could still deliver on his technological promises, and Tesla (TSLA) Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk, who “never does.”
