Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak reportedly told Reuters he would consider returning to Apple. "I'd consider it, yeah," the news service quotes him as saying.

There's nothing indicating that Apple is seeking his return. He's been away from the company nearly a quarter century. Still, the prospect is certainly an interesting one.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has done an impressive job of turning Apple into the force it is in the technology industry today. People will dispute many things about the company, but I don't think many will dispute that.

Jobs is on indefinite medical leave from the company's day-to-day operations, leaving COO Tim Cook as acting CEO. Things seem to be running fairly smoothly.

Another interesting quote from Wozniak: "My thinking is that Apple could be more open and not lose sales...I'm sure they're making the right decisions for the right reasons for Apple."

A more open Apple would certainly alleviate a lot of the criticisms about the company.

Browsing at Wozniak's Twitter timeline, he seems to really enjoy Foursquare, as nearly every tweet this month is Foursquare-related.

Wozniak currently works at Fusion-IO as Chief Scientist. He's been there since 2008.
