PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Tablets are the culmination of what Steve Jobs wanted to create at Apple from the beginning", Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has said. During a keynote session at Storage Networking World in Santa Clara, California, Wozniak was asked how tablets would change the computer industry. He compared them to TVs. "The tablet is not necessarily for the people in this room," Wozniak told the audience of enterprise storage engineers. "It's for the normal people in the world."

Once Jack Tramiel said:

"We made computers for the masses, not for the classes!"

(And it seems to me, If i recall it well, that Tramiel said these words right to Steve Jobs.)

Thirty years after these words, it is the time for Wozniak to misquote Tramiel:

"The tablet is not necessarily for the people in this room! It's for the normal people in the world."

Nice try Wozniak.

Maybe dear Woz, you were inspired by Jack when you meet him at 25th Anniversary of Commodore64 in Mountain View, California, in 2007.
