Famed Apple engineer/cofounder and living teddy bear Steve Wozniak said that, if he does plan on buying, he would purchase coveted shares in Facebook when it goes live this week, no matter the cost. When Facebook's IPO goes live on May 17th, the company will offer 337.4 million shares to the public at $28 to $35, putting it somewhere in the $96 billion range, market value-wise. "I would invest in Facebook," Wozniak said in an interview with Bloomberg on Sunday. "I don’t care what the opening price is."
Woz goes one step further and compares Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, saying, "I was thankful to have a partnership with Steve Jobs and I see Mark Zuckerberg closer to the combination of us...When he speaks he speaks with a lot of idealism for the users and a lot of good ideas for the product overall."
