VIDEO: Woz Lines Up Overnight for iPad 3 at California Mall

As the co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak is a technophile with some serious connections. However, just because he can call in a favor at Apple and get an iPad delivered to him without having wait outside at all hours of the night, that doesn't mean he will. Steve has made a bit of a habit out of lining up for Apple launches and he doesn't want to let the tradition die with iPad 3.

While Steve usually queues in San Francisco, this year he found himself in LA, so he hit up the line at Westfield Mall in Century City, CA. Steve got in line at noon yesterday and was number two, second only to his wife. He said that while he certainly doesn't have to wait in line (indeed, no one does, thanks to pre-orders), he wants to be genuine and wait with everyone else.

"I'd rather be there genuine like the real people. I want to be one of the people lined up and wait all night. Apple's just that important to so many of us, so you know, why not?"

Why not, indeed, Woz, why not indeed. What's Trending caught up with Wozniak as he waited in line early this morning. Check it out below:

    Apple is so amazing. They've revolutionized the entire industry, and they are simply the best company out there. My MacBook Pro and iPhone and new iPad 3 are just the most amazing products I've ever used. Steve Jobs is the best human being to ever live.

    He wanted to feel like a moron and wait in line. I guess we all like to be moronic now and then. Hows that for an apple bash? I could go on and on and on and on.

    ^While Apple's products aren't as bad as people say, Steve Jobs was not in any case the best human being ever to live.

    So what's the deal with The Woz, is he trying to set himself up as an unofficial heart & soul of Apple now that Satan has reclaimed his favourite?

    Tab54oHe wanted to feel like a moron and wait in line. I guess we all like to be moronic now and then.I feel the same for the people like this just after noon on Thanksgiving Day. Difference is that it blows my mind that these people do what they do on a day that is supposed to symbolize and represent family. With relation to the Woz for waiting in line, perhaps that is like he said just a tradition, and so be it. I'm more interested in the fact that he chooses the route your average Joe must if they wanted the said device, rather that being express shipped one due to inside connections (even if it is an Apple product).

Also to seels himself, if you are saying what you believe you realize you're on Tom's right? 95% of us dislike Apple products, and I would say at least 20% of us hate them with a burning passion. Also, Wozniak is the only Apply fanboy I respect. Most of them are just trying to be hip. Steve (not Jobs) actually has a real reason to like the products.
