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.

Actually, iPhone is a joke compared to Android: closed, crippled and feeling outdated with each new Android device.

Apple has already lost the sales & market share battle against Android. And this is only the beginning.

Mac Vs Windows history anyone?. Heh, "Those Who Forget History Are Doomed to Repeat It" ^^.


I see you're an expert at stating opinion as fact. Here's my opinion; having had a Droid since launch, a first gen iPod touch, and now a 4th gen iPT, and a Samsung Galaxy S: Android is frustrating, unrefined, and unstable compared to iOS. Additionally, the apps are generally of lower quality.

For the average user not looking to re-compile this and that, Android is only open if you're an OEM, who then apparently feels obligated to throw shitty UI after shitty UI on it in a failed attempt to brand the phone. Blur, Sense, and whatever the hell is on Samsung stuff is just unnecessary.

Furthermore, for all the crap iOS has gotten for security, Android is even worse, and Google doesn't seem to be all that interested in hurrying up and fixing the holes.

Lastly, I don't think Apple really gives two squirts about market share, for phones or computers, since they make more money than any single vendor of Android or Windows out there.

iPhone is a piece of crap, and apple is a bunch of lying scumbags led by an egomaniac! That is my opinion, and I am entitled to have one. You might disagree with it which is fine as long as you don’t try to convince me that it actually “just works”, cause it doesn’t, or that it is a viable commercial development platform, cause it isn’t, or that someone else should think instead of me, cause then I might just loose it. Some idiots here equate apple’s financial results with the quality of their product/service … which would then imply that Philip Morris has also good product/services, same could be said for Pablo Escobar, and so on. Idiots! That only means that median intelligence of modern consumer is well below what used to be average and are willing to part with huge amount of money for a shiny piece of crap.

that it actually “just works”
How can you say if you didn't even tried?
Your opinion is not based on reality.

and are willing to part with huge amount of money for a shiny piece of crap.

And how many users do you support? How many Macs? IOS devices? Until it numbers in at least the double digits, your opinion remains irrelevant to me.
