Wozniak and a Fledgling Woz

The man who helped found Apple is a new player in the wireless game

Stephen Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, is back in the startup game. After more than a decade on the sidelines, Wozniak has unveiled a new venture, dubbed "Wheels of Zeus" and based on his own nickname, "Woz." The Silicon Valley fledgling, which will focus on developing new wireless technologies for the consumer market, raised $6 million from venture capitalists.

Wozniak says he hasn't put up any of his own cash so that he will be a more disciplined manager. "When my own money goes into something, I start to become careless," says Wozniak, who will serve as CEO of the startup.
