Woz: In 2075, we’ll use iMacs on Mars

The future of Apple will be bright throughout the rest of this century, according to co-founder Steve Wozniak, who says he sees the company lasting well past 2075.

If the Apple legend is right, we’ll all be using iMacs on Mars before the end of the century.

While promoting Silicon Valley Comic Con, which he helped create last year, Woz gave his two cents on where humanity is headed in the future.

“Apple will be around a long time, like IBM (which was founded in 1911),” Wozniak said in an interview with USA Today. “Look at Apple’s cash ($246.1 billion, as of the end of its last fiscal quarter). It can invest in anything. It would be ridiculous to not expect them to be around (in 2075). The same goes for Google and Facebook.”

Wozniak ruminated on the theme of this year’s Silicon Valley Comic Con, “The Future of Humanity: Where Will We Be in 2075?” Along with predicting the immortality of Apple, Woz is convinced we’ll have a colony on Mars by that time. He says Earth will be zoned for residential use, while Mars will be set aside for heavy industry.

Deserts will supposedly be ideal locations for cities of the future, the Apple co-founder says. New cities could be built from scratch, solving housing problems.

Woz’s Jetsons-esque vision of the future also calls for people being shuttled among domed structures. Don’t worry, though — he says some genius will invent a special wearable suit so you can venture outside from time to time.
