In case you were wondering, the old lanyards for the 1st-gen iPod nanos work with the current 3rd-gen (aka "fatty" or "video") nanos.

Certain people prefer to prank call Woz

Leander Kahney has some odds and ends at his Cult of Mac blog, stuff that didn't make it into his column.

ITConversation with Woz

Steve Wozniak is the Steve that everyone likes. Sure Jobs gets most of the attention; he's the flashy in your face one.
