Apple "I think that Apple could be just as strong and good and be open, but how can you challenge it when a company is making that much money?", Wozniak told a crowd in Sydney, according to ITNews. They'd score so many brownie points the internet would explode.

The modern Apple takes a dump on Woz

Modern Apple is a Jobs company, it is all about marketing and design. Engineering and openness are not important anymore. Macs are just PCs in nicer cases etc.

They don't give a rats ass about what Woz is saying.

Yeah, Apple doesn't engineer anything. All their computers, iPhones and iPads create themselves.

Those unibody Macs just fell from heaven. Those A5X processors just appeared on the ground like manna!

When Apple, and Next for that matter, manufactured their own hardware, they couldn't compete with other companies. They just didn't have the economies of scale.

Jobs learned that the hard way. What differentiates Apple now is Design and Software and the (relatively) seamless integration of value added services (namely iTunes - which for all it's flaws is still better than the competition). Apple has ZERO marketing presence where I am and it's products' usage has mushroomed in the last 10 years.

It's an unfortunate fact that what we as geeks want, and what makes a company (with profit seeking shareholders) profitable are not often compatible.
