Steve Wozniak heads to Australia
Steve Wozniak – the cofounder of the one of the most successful and recognizable global corporations – Apple has joined the large number of prospective immigrants who want to move to Australia. Wozniak started Apple together with legendary Steve Jobs in 1970. He left the company in 1987, in order to start his own enterprises, but remained close advisor and friend of Steve Jobs until Jobs death last year.
“Right now I want to live in some coolish, sort of cool temperature place, I’m actually thinking Melbourne although I’m applying right now for New South Wales just because I don’t know yet,” Mr Wozniak told the Herald Sun.
“I’ve been to a lot of places in Australia but the cooler the better for me.”
Despite being a multimillionaire Wozniak worked as a high school teacher. Teaching turned out to be one of his favourite activities. Wozniak considers the Australian secondary system superior the US system, due to the fact the Australia spends a lot of money on high school education.
When it first became clear that Mr Wozniak wants to move to Australia, there were a lot of rumours on Internet that the reason for this is the country’s National Broadband Network (NBN), but Mr Wozniak disputes that.
“It is not a reason at all. It has absolutely nothing to do with it, I’m a proponent of technology, I’m a proponent of bandwidth, of the changes in our life, of the NBN, I’m a proponent of taking care of every citizen in a country with broadband, considering it a right.”
According to Wozniak the main things that he considers appealing in Australia are the attitudes of the people and the friendliness of the country. He adds that he always enjoyed spending time in Australia and that moving permanently in the country has been his dream for 30 years. Furthermore Wozniak adds that after moving to Australia he will start calling himself Australian as well. Nevertheless he has no intentions of renouncing his American Citizenship
