Steve Wozniak Doesn’t Have Home Broadband

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he doesn't need the new iPad. He has no interest until it can carry a 256GB file storage. Why does he need to carry so many files? Because it's hard for him to get on the internet. The Woz actually has no broadband service at his home!

According to reporters from Mac World and Techradar who attended the event, Wozniak noted he already carries as many files as possible on a previous iPad model because “I don’t have broadband at home, and you can’t get great broadband connection in hotels”, noting that his lack of high-speed Internet at home is because of his lousy phone company, but that is life.”

Wozniak didn’t elaborate on whether broadband is simply unavailable where he lives, or if there’s another reason he doesn’t have it. He lists his hometown as Los Gatos, California, which is one of the most affluent towns in the US and part of “Silicon Valley”, so it would be ironic if he really can’t get service.

Hey Woz, maybe you could try the cable company. Or maybe he'd rather just carry his files with him than deal with cable. I can't say that I blame him.

I grew up in Saratoga and now 2 of my brothers live in the mountains above Los Gatos, actually right on the summit on Skyline Blvd. Water from a well, septic system, backup generator, water storage tanks for fire fighting. Basic phone service available. TV via satellite. And, if you are standing in the right spot, cell service.
