The Woz uses Postfix Enabler
Category : Commentary
One particular PayPal notification came in last week that made me do a double-take.
This email confirms that you have received a Payment from Steve Wozniak (firstname.lastname@example.org)".
How about that for a collector's item?
I took a look at woz.org and in it he writes :
When you call Apple to order stuff and you give them your name, do people recognize you and say "Hey, your that dude that created Apple!"
Woz: I order Apple stuff online. I doubt that any human ever sees the names. But once I ordered a gigabit ethernet option. Apple noticed two months later that only two of these had been ordered, both by me! I do get noticed every time I buy shareware, and that brings me a lot of T-shirts that I get good use out of.
We would love to send over a tee-shirt one day.
But that just proves how you'll never know who's going to be using your software, one day. And I was just talking about how there's a lot of responsibility putting out a piece of software that a lot of people will use. I really, really hope it worked for him.
