Steve Wozniak may no longer be an active Apple (AAPL) employee, but he’s still a loyal shopper, saying Wednesday that he’ll buy the much-discussed Apple tablet once it’s released next year.

“If there is such a thing,” he said at a conference. “I buy everything Apple comes out with.”

He then added, “There is no such thing,” after which Fusion-io President David Flynn interjected, “You’re talking to a guy who has seven [navigation] systems in his car. So he will definitely be buying it.”

The men were there to announce that Fusion-io’s technology will be used for a new solid-state-disk storage technology offered by IBM’s (IBM) servers, called the High IOPS Adapter.
