Apple Co-Founder Lands in Israel between the Rockets

Neither, rain, nor sleet, snow nor Hamas can keep Apple co-founder Wozniak from biting into Israel.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is in Israel to take part in Monday’s EduAction Forum scheduled in Holon, next to Tel Aviv, to start off the new school year on the right foot, rockets permitting.

Wozniak will talk at the conference on his favorite subject – teaching – under the title of “The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far from the Tree.”

The co-founder of Apple left the company some 30 years ago and now is the chief scientist for Fusion-io, which specializes in cloud computing.

With a net worth of $100 million, Wozniak also teaches computers to junior high school students.

He did not the let the war stop him from visiting Israel, but the same cannot be said for author Amy Chua, who chickened out of the conference.

Although Wozniak no longer is with Apple, his former company has invested heavily in Israel and recently appointed an Israel Arab, Johnny Srouji, as its first Israeli vice president.
