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.

Android mainstream

I think in reality the iOS is the better option for mainstream i.e. non-technical users who don't really care about this Android openness we keep hearing about. It's a simpler UI and generally easier to live with.

In comparison, Android features like the app upgrade process that makes you confirm permissions is a bit much for the average joe.

But stupidly high iPhone prices and large range of Android devices means that many mainstream users will end up with an Android machine even if is perhaps not the ideal machine for their needs.

The odd thing is that more of the tech community don't go with Android, on the dev team I work on the split is about 50/50 between android and iPhone.
