BRISBANE, Australia, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak said Saturday he has applied for Australian citizenship.

"I'm going to live and die as an Australian," Wozniak said in remarks at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane. "That sort of isn't well known yet."

Wozniak also said people may have deeper relationships with computers than with other people in 40 years, the Brisbane Times reported Saturday.

"The computer's going to be our best friend," he said. "It's going to know me so well, I won't want you humans (anymore)."

Wozniak, who founded what is now the world's move valuable company with his friend Steve Jobs, said his passion was programming, while Jobs had the touch for turning ideas into money.

Once Wozniak learned programming, "for the rest of my life I was going to love those ones and zeros," he said.

He said he was preparing for the brave, new world of computers in the future.

"I feed my pet dog really good steak every night because I might be a pet dog one day to the computers," he said.
