    Like that will ever happen. His thought process is so far outside of what Apple does.

    Perhaps its a strategic move. Get back into the company and when/if Jobs doesn't come back (dies), Woz would try to take the helm.

    What makes Woz the primary candidate to take over?

    Sure, he co-founded Apple....20+ years ago. It is a different company now and there are others that would be alot more qualified imo

    I don't know. Maybe Woz is thinking that, or maybe (most likely) he's not.

    Woz is hardly qualified to run Apple and last I checked, there were no openings on the Apple Segway Polo team.

    As important as Woz was at the beginning of apple, I don't think he would be a good fit for where apple is now and its direction.

    Yeah, he doesn't seem to like the closed in cash cow approach ;)

    Woz would be great for the consumers, but the almighty dollar rules. I'd love to see him back.

    Woz and leadership don't go together.

    And it might be a good idea for him to take a refresher course on design.

    Actually, it might be best if he stays as far away from Apple as possible.

    He doesn't. Technically he's employee #1 and has a work badge but that's more ceremonial thing. He doesn't really interact with them on a work basis.
