Steve Wozniak Queues For The New iPad
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is once again first in the queue for the new iPad. However, this time he is at a different location than usual.
Shira Lazar of What’s Trending reported that Wozniak and his wife were waiting in a queue for the iPad at Westfield Mall in Century City, Los Angeles.
Wozniak said, “My wife was actually the first in line, I’m the second. We came about noon. We’re used to Northern California stores, where the lines start that early. I have a keynote speech coming up (in LA) this morning, right after I get the iPad.”
Wozniak is well known for waiting in the queues for Apple products. However, one may say about Wozniak that as a co-founder and one of the most important people in Apple’s history, he could probably get them without having to stand and wait in the queues.
For Wozniak, however, waiting in a queue and experiencing a new gadget for the first time, surrounded by fellow Apple enthusiasts, is part of the fun.
“It’s become a ritual. Because I’ve done it so many times, I’m doing it again,” says Wozniak. “I wanna be one of the real people, who line up and wait all night…Apple’s just that important to us.”
