Apple "Most of the stuff written about Wozniak portrays him as an amiable buffoon. By most accounts, Woz is a talented engineer who got lucky in his early career and became fabulously wealthy. Then he dropped out to be an unsuccessful concert promoter, launch a couple of go-nowhere startups and teach school. It appears Woz has bounced from one thing to another without much commitment or direction. Along the way, he squandered much of his fortune and was a soft touch for every charity and cause under the sun."

I think you are missing one huge fact, Wozniak as a person, he personally has no desire to gain huge amounts of money, you will see that alot of what he has done is to try and give people who arent as fortunate as him self a chance of making their lives better be it through education or just through giving someone a chance of having an enjoyable time, and to him if that means he lost all his money, as long as it made a difference to their lives i think Wozniak wouldnt have mind the loss of his money.
