sold my new car and got a 2000 dollar toyota. doing ok with work but I definitely do not buy shit I do not need and spend most of my money on airplane tickets or on meals for my girlfriend. I dont spend money on junk is the main thing. and yeah, i've been lucky to have family and good jobs that have supported me.

Woz, what's the right balance for young people in terms of buying new gear and having experiences (like travel, theater, lessons)?

Woz, you are one of the most honest people I have come across in technology. Sometimes, you say things like "Android is ok!" or that you're hoping the hackers win when it comes to jailbreaking. (Not sure these are the exact phrases but you know what I mean.) Does apple ever get upset when you say things that are
