  • Woz Wasn't Wowed by Apple's New iPad Air


    Always candid and never pulling punches, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is at it again.

    According to a string of new reports, Woz simply wasn't wowed by Apple's announcement Tuesday. In particular, the iPad Air didn't make the "other Steve" get up and cheer.

    "I am constantly following the gadget world but I was on a plane and missed all of the keynote. When I finally took a look at the devices, the iPads didn't hit my needs," Woz said in a new interview.

    So what was missing that would have otherwise excited Woz? Lots and lots of storage.

    "I don't have broadband at home, and you can't get great broadband connections in hotels, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 256GB iPad [...] so I could put every episode of Big Bang Theory on my iPad. So I emailed my wife and said 'Nope, I don't want one of those'"

    A statement of "I don't want one of those" from the co-founder of Apple is probably not something the company wants to hear today. But nothing can be done about a man who loves to speak his mind whenever invited to do so.

      I'm pretty sure he was joking.

      Woz probably dislikes how Apple isn't as innovative as it used to be.
      We have all been disheartened by the small jumps they have been making as each device is upgraded.
      But keep in mind that they are still the company that makes electronic devices that are the measure that everything is compared to.
      IF Apple does release an iWatch or iTV, it will be better than the competition, although more expensive.
