Josh Gad to Play Steve Wozniak in Jobs Biopic

Josh Gad and Steve Wozniak

Josh Gad is set to play Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in Jobs: Get Inspired.

The Book of Mormon star is in talks to join Ashton Kutcher - who has been confirmed to play technology mogul Steve Jobs - in the Joshua Michael Stern directed indie biopic which will follow the Apple corporation from 1971 to 2000, when Steve became the full time CEO of the company for a second time. While Wozniak and Jobs were close, they had a fractious relationship as the engineer grew frustrated with Jobs' increasingly single-minded behavior.

Bill Gates speaks about the past, present, future of the PC

The most significant innovation in personal computing over the last 30 years has been the evolution of natural interfaces, with the GUI, speech recognition, gestures and touch receiving equal weight, according to Bill Gates, a co-founder and the former chief executive of Microsoft.

As the PC turns 30, we asked Gates, as well as other industry leaders, for their thoughts on the most significant innovation in personal computing, and how PCs have changed people's lives for the better – or worse. Finally, we wanted to know what the future holds for personal computing – and maybe whether the "Personal Computer" would exist in its current form.

While Apple's Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak arguably invented and popularized the personal computer, Bill Gates, Paul Allen and later Steve Ballmer at Microsoft crafted and shaped the Windows operating system which became synonomous with the term "PC". The Apple Macintosh and Windows pushed the graphical user interface into the mainstream, driven by the increasing performance of microprocessors from Intel Corp., and later from chips designed by Advanced Micro Devices, Cyrix, Via Technology, and others.

DWTS’ Steve Wozniak Injured Again

Steve WozniakSteve Wozniak’s problems have just moved up his leg.

According to E! Online, the Apple co-founder is now dealing with more than just a foot fracture. Earlier this weekend, Wozniak pulled a hamstring during rehearsals.

Although host Tom Bergeron says Steve is “determined to be there on Monday and dance,” one source claims the injured celebrity has been “limping pretty badly.”

So what would this mean for should her partner be permanently sidelined? “The only thing it will impact is if there is one week we were going to have a double elimination and we wouldn’t do that. But we’d still eliminate someone. So if [he] can’t dance this week, we’re still going to knock somebody else out anyway because that’s the way we roll,” Bergeron explained.

DWTS’ Latest Injured Stars: Steve Wozniak and Steve-O

Steve-OSteve Wozniak

The Dancing with the Stars benchwarmers might want to start warming up.

Less than a week after replacing two of the program’s female celebrities, the producers are now facing several injuries on the male side.

Although he surprised audiences with a Jackass-less waltz last Monday, Steve-O is struggling to make it to Week 2. “A physical therapist has told me that nerves are being pinched in my back, and it is in spasms because of inflammation related to torn muscles. I’m doing everything I can to let it heal—icing it, taking Advil, drinking water, visiting a chiropractor and continuing to be worked on by the physical therapist. I’m still rehearsing every day, but walking through my salsa routine rather than practicing the physical stunts and tricks that are incorporated into it. It is going to be a risky routine that I hope to pull off,” the 34-year-old said in a statement.

Steve Wozniak Cha Chas

We admit that we occasionally watch reality shows, especially when we hear that Apple’s co-founder is appearing on one. Steve Wozniak first appeared on a Segway to meet his partner Karina Smirnoff for his stint on “Dancing With the Stars.” We guess that was so he could convince her that he had some physical ability. We really like that he tried to turn his performance into something mathmatecal during rehearsal. The two performed a cha cha to the tune “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and unfortunately got the lowest score of the evening, a 13 out of 30.

I never f——d him or anything!” She went on to say that they were never really a couple in the traditional sense. “The truth is, we really were friends the whole time.”
