PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless ...and finally it pays off for OSNews to have a Dutch editor. Yes, I knew this glorious day would one day be upon us, the day upon which the rest of the technology world would be struggling with Google Translate to decipher a Dutch article with news in it. But not for OSNews, oh no! Anyway, Steve Wozniak, Apple founder and still technically an employee, gave an interview to a Dutch newspaper (the worst we have, but still) in which he made some interesting remarks. Update: Told you it's the worst newspaper we have.

... targets the folk. To do this, the editors have to simplify topics in a way that "normal people" have the impression: I grasped it.

Well, at least for me, it is hard work to break down IT related topics to a level "normal people" -- e.g. my customers -- understand it. And newspapers like De Telegraaf even target people with much less background than my customers. So, I really honor the work of these editors.

On the other side, most "IT experts" rate articles in such newspapers as oversimplified or even simply as bullshit. But these "experts", in my personal experience are not able to target "normal people".
