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.

Danish is a pastry in the US. Its a flaky pastry with icing and a fruit compote in the center.

Actually those definitely look like a form of Viennese-bread (or wienerbrød as we call them).

Anyway, I'd wish the Dutch language had a proper and decent orthography and a human phonology... that'd make everything much easier ;)

In Sweden it's called weinerbröd.

"Danskt weinerbröd" is said to be weinerbröd with chocolate on top according to Wikipedia. Even though it's sometimes called that even if it doesn't have chocolate.

Supposedly weinderbröd with apple filling:

Actually it is wienerbröd in Swedish. Similar to Danish and Norwegian (also in Nynorsk) wienerbrød, but with German ö ;)
