    Wisdom from the Woz: Doesn't Agree with Cali Verdict; Doesn't Think it Will Stick


    Photo Credit: AndroidAuthority

    It's easy to like Steve Wozniak. The former co-founder of Apple and famous tech-guru seems to always have something interesting, relevant and useful to say about today's evolving technologies. The Woz (as he is affectionately nicknamed) was recently interviewed and he had several interesting things to say regarding the iPhone 5 and the Apple vs. Samsung California trial. Rather than wax poetic with our version of his opinion, we have included several quotes directly from the Master himself.

    In reference to the iPhone 5:

    I am always excited about every iPhone product because there are always good advances. A better quality on the pictures will mean a lot, because when I show people pictures on my iPhone 4 and my Galaxy S III, they always say the Galaxy S III, or even the Motorola Razr, pictures look better.
    I think they took some very important steps. Id like to get a product, use it myself before I judge it and compare to others. Id like to have it myself and tell whats good and bad about it.
    In reference to the Apple vs. Samsung Trial and other ongoing Patent Wars:

    I hate it. I dont think the decision of California will hold. And I dont agree with it -- very small things I dont really call that innovative. I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybodys technologies.
    So, there you have it. Wisdom from the Woz. It's too bad he isn't still working at Apple, and every tech company should ponder his perspective.

    I don't mean to be picky, but "The former co-founder of Apple..."? Just because he no longer works there doesn't go back in time and undo the fact that he helped start the company. Maybe this would work better: "The co-founder and former chief technologist of Apple..."

    Looks like the pedantics have taken over the forum...

    Next thing you know we'll be overrun by the semantics & romantics & we'll have nowhere else to run...

    Pedantic | Define Pedantic at Dictionary.com


    It's called creative writing...
    Pedantics
    Semantics
    Romantics

    Not only do they rhyme, but they all end with ICS.

    But you did make me laugh...
