Steve Wozniak is the first in line waiting for the new iPad in LA
Co-founder of Apple and the second Steve after Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak is probably one of the most enthusiastical Apple supporters even after terminating his full-time employment in Apple. And now he’s the first in line to get the new third-generation iPad in Los Angeles.

The Woz checked in an LA mall on Foursquare yesterday which gave enough hint to journalists to find him. A couple of hours later Whatstrending interviewed Wozniak who was first in line for the new iPad along with some surprised Apple fans.

The Apple co-founder spoke about the past of Apple and how they knew they were starting a revolution, but didn’t exactly know how it will all look like in a couple of years. He shared his astonishment about the technological progress of recent years not just at Apple but in computing in general.

The Woz said he was trying not to think about Steve Jobs and acknowledged that Jobs created a company that pledged to deliver great products. So far, Apple succeeds in his view, and the numbers are definitely there to back up these statement. Check out the full interview below.

That's interesting: when he's not on a food line, he's on an iPad line.

whether hes on a food line or an ipad line, either way it isn't healthy, although an ipad line is much much less healthy

Thats a horrible thing to say. Say what you want about ios but you didn't have to insult him personally.

That's interesting. Did Apple already sent him one in well in advance and he was just on the line like a promotional stint, or he really came out to buy one. If it's the later, then he was treated badly, especially being the co-founder of that multi billion dollar empire. Even Google showed him love and gave him a Galaxy Nexus

He didn't have to wait in line. He did for 4s too. Here's a quote from that article: Wozniak acknowledged that he could have easily made one phone call to Apple and gotten the phone he's waiting in line for, but he didn't. He has yet to play with an iPhone 4S or its Siri voice-controlled assistant. He has said previously that he does not ask colleagues about products in development because he does not want to ruin the surprise for himself.

Nice promotional stunt *pple. This is their reaction to The Woz getting the Galaxy Nexus before anyone else and the publicity that created.

Did he arrive in line first, or did the throngs part way to let him pass like some biblical event? Woz is pretty cool though... I'd probably let him cut in line too.
