Woz shows what’s in his bag – puts everyone’s mobile device collection to shame

0. phoneArena 17 Jul 2012, 13:00 posted on

We’d be willing to bet that a lot of loyal PhoneArena readers carry a lot of devices around with them, but have you ever wondered what a tech legend like Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak carries...

I think I just shat my pants.
I'd love to have all that, but substitute the iPhones for SGSIIIs (because he already has a couple GNex), substitute the MacBook for a Samsung Series 9, and sub the iPad for a TF700t with dock.
Woz is a freaking BAMF.

You are such a homer and fanboy. Get off Android's sack.

Well excuuuuuse me.
I'm not a fanboy, I just don't want the same grid of Apps everywhere I look. I also just don't really like Macs. I've considered one many times, though. It has nothing to do with Apple, but I don't agree with a lot of their business practices.
And how am I a fanboy wanting a WINDOWS laptop along with my Android devices? I love Windows Phone too, and can't wait for Boot to Gecko.
Kiss my ass.

I don't think you are an android fanboy
Just the annoying type of person that will buy anything but apple
There isn't a single product that you like in apple's range ? Isn't it great to have some diversity in your gadget collection ?
If you already have an android phone , why not get an iPad ? I have galaxy nexus and iPad 2 they make a great combination .
As for the mac the series 9 cost the same as the MacBook air . So why not get the mac ? It boots OS x and windows , have better touchpad and looks more classy .
Btw , specs isn't everything , I bought an iPod touch just because I like the design .
Grow up and stop hating !

This post is from like a month ago... But whatever.
No, to answer your question. I do like Apple's lineup of MP3 players, but I can just use my phone for that now. I do not like iPhones because they're too simple (and too small) and I do not like iPads for the same reason. I use Macs close to every week at school and I simply don't like them that much. I mean, Macs are awesome, but my personal preference would be Windows or Ubuntu. Also, I don't want to buy a more expensive Macbook when I'm just going to run Windows on it anyway. That's a ridiculous thing to do just to own something with an Apple symbol on it. You can just buy a cheaper Windows ultrabook! (And yes, they're cheaper than the next generation Macbook Pro, which starts at like $2000 or something. I like the Retina Display on it, though.
TL;DR No, there is no product that I like in Apple's entire range. That doesn't make me a hater.

Okay thanks for clarifying
But the new nano sucks , the screen is too small and can't play videos
You can check the prices online
Specs are the same series 9 and mac air and prices are the same too

Woz is a lover of technology and he collects it. He loves playing with the latest and greatest gadget and is always in line for when a device launches.

I don't know, but if I had two, I would use them for a comparison between 4.0 and 4.1.
Also, this is just me, but I would love to have an unlocked Galaxy Nexus (or Gnex 2?) as my primary device. I wouldn't care if I didn't have LTE.

I rather just get the Asus Padfone and a couple of 64GB microSDXC and SDXC cards than having to worry about that many gadgets...

BTW, why would you need a standalone GPS nowadays? Waze & GMaps+offline FTW :)

Anyway is still an impressive collection.

It missed to tag the Lacie External Hard Drive plugged to the Mac

Why is there so much Woz worship? He hasn't been relevent in the industry since the 80s. He's just living off his stock and investments and is pretty much an "old kid" except with tech toys instead of regular toys. And so much for his Lumia 900 praise, its not even with him, when all that other stuff is. Why does he need 2 iphones, and all these other phones?

Because without Woz, Steve Jobs would have died a very successful car salesman.

Well people like Nolan Bushnell pioneered video games to what they are today, but you don't see the constant praise for him from gaming blogs. And he's more involved in the industry (well as of late at least, he's on the board of directors for Atari, which is a very different company from when he was the starter and ceo of atari, as its changed hands 3 times since he was involved with it.) and has had more impact on it than Woz has had on the computer industry.

Wow....+1 for the Bushnell reference.

Which reminds me...I so miss the old format of G4TV....thats when I first learned about him. On that Icons show.
