If it’s the elite of the world that influence the behavior of the masses, better book your hotel in China this year before rooms fill up. In the same week that the web and Twitter worlds have been following visits to China by Apple CEO Tim Cook and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it was announced today that yet another U.S. tech luminary will be coming to the Middle Kingdom:  Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple with Steve Jobs. Rather than spending all of his time with geeks, Wozniak will be in Shanghai to press the flesh with (yikes!) members of the International Council of Shopping Centers at the Retail Real Estate World Summit, a “multinational forum to address and shape the critical role and socio-economic impact of the worldwide property market.” Let’s hope Wozniak also finds time to inspire some Chinese geeks.   He has plenty of time to work on it: The conference will be held September 12-14.

A Cool song about Steve Jobs:

"When I heard that Steve Jobs had passed away, I felt so sad that we had lost such a dynamic, brilliant, creative mind. And then my thoughts went to a song that I had originally released in 2008 called Rapplistory. I feel that this song truly plays homage to Steve Jobs and all that he accomplished. There may never be anyone like him again. We will miss you Steve." - Daphne Kalfon

Steve Wozniak, Bay Area local and one of the Steves behind the tech explosion that is Apple, discusses starting the company with Steve Jobs in their garage. “Think about this: whenever you start up a little company with some friends, you’re gonna use your house to do some part of it at some point…you’re just stretching the little money you have.” He shares that the creation of the Apple II was the moment they knew something exciting was happening.

ANKENY, Iowa -- It took just 10 minutes for tickets to disappear to a DMACC event featuring the co-founder of Apple. The speech by Steve Wozniak is part of the school's iWeek events at DMACC's West Des Moines Campus set for March 5 to 8. Wozniak tickets were free to those who were first in an electronic line. "We could have given out three times as many tickets, but are restricted by space limitations," said Dr. Tony Paustian, Provost of the DMACC West Campus. "The interest in our speakers this year is a good indication how popular and well attended iWeek will be."

San Francisco got a taste of Lana Del Rey madness Thursday night as the bewitching singer celebrated the release of her debut album, Born to Die, at Amoeba Music. Fresh from her successful performance at Amoeba Hollywood Tuesday night, Lana Del Rey arrived to the San Francisco store at 2:30pm and took the time to greet deliriously happy fans out on Haight Street (even greeting a friend of a fan's through his cell phone) before heading up to the Amoeba green room to get ready for her 6:00pm show. To say the show was well attended would be an understatement as the store's capacity was reached sometime around 5:30pm. With the store packed full of admirers and a line of hopefuls down Haight Street (and around the block), it would be safe to say that over 1,500 fans turned out to see the new voice of their generation.

Apple Computer, Inc., co-founder Steve Wozniak, whose engineering feat was the catalyst to transform Santa Clara Valley into Silicon Valley, sold out the 600-seat house at Santa Clara University's Louis B. Mayer Theatre January 26. Wozniak's local-boy-makes-good story is legendary: A middleclass kid is born in San Jose in 1950, grows up in Sunnyvale, graduates from Homestead High School in Cupertino, and attends De Anza Community College. The self-described young "geeky nerd" with a passion for engineering builds the first personal computer and—with a little marketing help from his late friend Steve Jobs—changes not just Santa Clara Valley but the world.

Back in the mid-1970‘s a young engineer named Steve Wozniak pitched his boss at Hewlett-Packard on his idea for building a personal computer. Back then, computers were offered as kits designed for techies to build, not the finished, consumer products they are today. HP told Wozniak it wasn’t interested so he went on and joined his pal Steve Jobs to start a company called Apple Computer. Fast forward about 35 years and Apple is looking in the rear view mirror at HP as it just passed the computer giant as the leading volume producer of PCs in the world, according to the latest research by Canalys covering the fourth quarter of 2011.
