Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple Computer in 1975, said in Tuesday’s issue of Digital Life magazine that The Cranberries are one of his top three favorite bands.
The engineering genius told Digital Life that listening to music is one of his biggest hobbies, with his favorites being Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and The Cranberries: “[My] PowerBook is with me all the time. It’s the high-end version, 17-inch screen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and 2GB RAM. And of course, I have my music in it.”
“I have six iPods including the iPod Photo, the Shuffle and the iPod minis,” the creator of the Apple I and II said. “My favourite is the U2 iPod. Each iPod contains a different type of music.” Apple’s other co-founder, Steve Jobs, used The Cranberries’ “Dreams” in the press conference to launch iTunes in 2003.
Wozniak joins a list of notables including Madonna, Dido, Rufus Wainwright, and Ben Stein, who have all professed their love for The Cranberries in the past. That should flatter a certain Apple-loving friend of ours.
Wozniak’s autobiography, tentatively titled I Woz, is due in 2007.
