During the course of a candid Question & Answer session with Gizmodo on Tuesday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak - who founded Apple, along with its legendary CEO Steve Jobs, in a garage way back in 1976 - revealed that he was once a Tetris champion.
Wozniak told Gizmodo that when he ended his stint as a full-time Apple executive in 1987 - while technically continuing to remain an employee of the company till now, and drawing an attractive salary package -, he started keeping himself busy by playing Tetris.
Gradually, he became a Tetris champion, and had a fairly long reign as the top ranker. He revealed that it was in 1988 that he began his term as the top-ranking Tetris player in monthly rankings of Nintendo Power magazine. His tenure at the top apparently continued for so long that Nintendo felt it somewhat like the proverbial pain in the neck!
Wozniak said that Nintendo officials told him that his name had been right at the top, as the top-ranked Tetris player, for such a long period of time that the company had decided that his name will not be printed in the magazine again.
However, Wozniak was not the one to be bogged down by Nintendo's decision, and he - according to the information shared with Gizmodo - racked up yet another high Tetris score, telling the company that his name was "Evets Kainzow" --- Steve Wozniak spelled backwards!
