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.

You open a web site that is slow while checking emails while playing music while video chatting on skype, moving quickly from app to app.

So what is the problem?

I expected to see something spectacular.
Not to how to save 2 seconds while waiting for website to load. I prefer to be sure what apps will not crash inexpectedly because of memory allocation failure or affect the smoothness of foreground app scrolling.
LOL, while writing this message my Android system freezed when I pressed submit button, forcing me to retype the entire post. Wish them burn in hell.

I didn't tried videochatting yet, but I hardly see myself playing music and videochatting at the same time.
If web site loading is slow, why should I consume extra bandwidth to check emails or videochatting(!) ?
Web site loading on WIFI typically takes only a few seconds.
Maybe I can switch apps faster, but there is no advantage.
Just tap "home" twice to see a list of running programs and select or kill them as you wish.
How much faster you can do it in Maemo?

waiting in front of your browser for youtube to start.
Ohh! 2 seconds? Not a big deal.
