Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, in town for a speech at Florida International University, tweeted Saturday that he and his wife Janet were in room 1725, the Grand Presidential Suite, at Turnberry Isle and that he had checked into the resort’s spa. The mogul clearly has no qualms with publishing his whereabouts on Twitter, also tweeting that he was part of a party of seven Sunday at Aventura Mall’s Cheesecake Factory. He broke from vacation mode to visit the Apple store at The [Palm Beach] Gardens Mall, tweeting, “The manager called me this morning so I decided to visit the Apple Store.”

Tech twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were seen getting in on the spirit of Winter Music madness Sunday afternoon at the Delano Beach Club. The venture capitalists who sued Mark Zuckerberg for $140 million, claiming he stole their idea that led to Facebook, spent the day poolside at a cabana.

Lionel Richie had dinner Saturday night with country rock singer Michael Simmons and friends at db Bistro Moderne. Richie spoke with the chef about his dietary needs — he was overheard saying he couldn’t have things that were too acidic and said he’s trying to be healthier. He ordered the pumpkin soup for an appetizer and duck confit for his main dish. After dinner, he mingled with fans.

A chunky Bobby Brown and his fellow New Edition pal Michael Bivins (later of Bell Biv DeVoe fame) were seen hanging out Friday and Saturday at Bella Beach Club. The following day, R&B star Ne-Yo lounged at the swanky Sunny Isles swim club.

Olympian Ryan Lochte is on a guy’s-only getaway in Miami for a few days. He kicked off his spring break in typical South Beach style Sunday, hitting the Shore Club for the hotel’s St. Patrick’s Day bash. Lochte juggled the attention of numerous bikini-clad girls throughout the day, drank vodka and champagne and, of course, swam.

In town to DJ at Mansion, reality star DJ Pauly D and friends spent the late afternoon sipping cocktails Friday at Highbar at the Dream South Beach. The former Jersey Shore phenom took photos with fans and hung out at the rooftop bar to watch the sunset.

Ludacris, spotted Friday night at BLT Steak at The Betsy, was also seen spending Saturday night with friends at Zuma. There on Sunday, rapper Azealia Banks, with three girlfriends. Also spotted there over the weekend was Olivia Culpo, Miss Universe 2012.

Snoop Dogg — er, Lion — spent Sunday night at Bamboo with Ne-Yo, who arrived with 60, yes, 60, women. According to our spies, Snoop, who performed, was “badass, walking in all swag with his entourage.” Ne-Yo, says our own snoop, had a long chat with the rapper. Joining the conversation and party later were the ubiquitous Flo Rida and Pleasure P.
