Man, Steve Wozniak Carries a Ton of Random Crap in His Backpack

As my mother would surely say: He's definitely going to have back problems if he doesn't already. I mean, one laser pointer sure, but multiple laser pointers?!

Via Gizmodo, Apple co-founder, gadget-lover, and all-around character Steve Wozniak gives an accounting of the contents of his backpack. The list, provided here in part, is stunning:

  • Droid RAZR
  • 2 iPhones
  • Galaxy Nexus, unlocked
  • spare Galaxy Nexus
  • Garmin for his car
  • Garmin for his backpack
  • 2 mutewatches
  • Mophie
  • Kindle
  • Verizon battery supplement
  • iPad
  • iPad keyboard
  • MacBook Pro
  • Jambox
  • 3g MiFi and spare
  • 4G MiFi and spare
  • iPod Nano
  • AirPort Express and MacBook Pro 85W magsafe adapter
  • bluetooth mouse (this, Wozniak says, doesn't get very much use -- implying that everything else does)
  • binoculars
  • multiple Gameboy Lights (a Gameboy sold in Japan but never in the U.S.)
  • foreign AC adapters
  • prism glasses for watching movies in bed
  • sunglasses
  • earplugs for concerts, separate earplugs for flights
  • pencils, pens, Sharpies, etc.
  • laser pointers (red, blue, purple, yellow, and green)
  • Square
  • cigarette lighter dual USB adapter
  • toiletries
  • eyedrops
  • batteries of all types

And this is a pared-down selection! A picture of just some of the contents laid out on a table, in addition to the list in toto, is available on the Gizmodo site. Wozniak says this all comes to about 50 pounds, and, needless to say, airport security is a nightmare.
