Steve Wozniak, who together with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne founded Apple in 1976, said in an interview that Jobs deserves recognition as the "greatest technology business leader of our time."
In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Wozniak discussed and applauded Jobs' record of building popular consumer devices and for righting the company, which had struggled after Jobs was forced out in the mid-1980s and was away for nearly 12 years.
"[Steve Jobs] didn't just start Apple," Wozniak said. "He started the music company, iTunes. He started the music iTunes store. He started the retail stores. He has been behind the iPhone. That is the device of our lifetime. He's done Apple computer many times over."
Wozniak said he had no insight into Jobs' health and acknowledged that the two weren't as in touch as they once were.
