Wozniak Would Consider Return To Apple

Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak , has said he would consider a return to play an active part with Apple, the company he left in 1987.

Wozniak is still actually on Apple’s payroll, even though he doesn’t hold a working title or walk many of the corridors at Cupertino.

It’s not known how serious he is about returning to Apple. When asked by Reuters would he consider a return, he answered “I’d consider it, yeah”.

“There’s just an awful lot I know about Apple products and competing products that has some relevance, some meaning. They’re my own feelings, though,” said Wozniak,

When questioned about Apple’s perceived closed operations, Wozniak said he would prefer a more open Apple. “My thinking is that Apple could be more open and not lose sales,” but he also continued to say “I’m sure they’re making the right decisions for the right reasons for Apple.”

Apple have suffered a number of key losses in senior staff in the last few months with Bertrand Serlet and Mark Papermaster the most prominent to recently leave Cupertino. The continuous health concerns surrounding CEO Steve Jobs and the rumors of Jony Ive’s intentions to leave the company, may make a return of one of Apple’s founding fathers a welcome re-addition to Apple Inc.

Wozniak is currently chief scientist of Fusion-io, a data storage and server services company based in Utah.
