    Get a life and go back to teaching grade 5 kids.
    You are the definition of a crazed fanboy. You attack his position, but even the most simple minded folk can understand that he's right.

    Apple really needs to get their **** together before I even consider buying another product.

    I agree. Tim Cook isn't a leader.

    There are only a few things that Android excels... Airdroid and it's screen. Even with the same apps on each platform, the iOS app is always ahead and it has to be because of the underlying foundation.

    For everything else we have the iPhone. Hopefully they will reinvent quite a few things...
    I had the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 before I traded it for the iPhone 5. The Note 2 is very fast but the screen resolution is bad for it's screen size. I like the AppStore better than the Google Play Store because of its interface and more apps and games in it.

    Your completely wrong!! If apple bought cydia you really could kiss good bye to the tweaks and things you like! What really needs to happen is apple to accept that people other than apple know how to make apps and tweaks that work great on the iPhone! And embrace cydia and help make it a standard part of their iPhone range!

    Maybe what he means is that we know they already have far more advanced equipment to make the iPhone faster and the hydrogen battery that only needs a charge maybe once a week, but for some reason they are holding back.. Megapixels of a camera, a millimeter thinner, a tiny bit lighter and a little bit bigger screen?.. These don't really seem to be big leaps in progress.. If they aren't ready to to a quantum leap how about a giant leap by bringing the Dev team aboard to show them what we really want in our iPhone..

    Apple hasn't always been behind, after all the iPhone revolutionized cell phones. At this point Apple may not have all the features that some Android devices have, but usually that's because Apple is perfecting the feature before release. It doesn't really matter when it gets released, it's how well it works with the device and the user. I do agree that Apple could be in trouble when the, "Jobs well" runs dry. I have faith in Ives though, so it won't be so bad hopefully.

    I am a geek. I used to love to tinker so I used windows and Linux a lot. I would have loved an android back then. Now I am too busy with other things and I want it to work without having to explore all the options and menus. So I use OSX, Windows 8, and an iPhone. They all work and play VERY well together, and they work like they should. I have had to show some of my friends how to use their Androids (granted, not running Ice Cream Sandwich which I hear is far better) and the experience was pretty painful. Slow, glitchy, and nothing was where (at least to my way of thinking) it should be. Just not intuitive enough for me.

    Bottom line stock iPhone hardware is elegant and on par with current tech. Software and features apple lags way far behind the competition. Thats where the jailbreak community comes in. I have always believed there are better phones out there than an iPhone, but nothing & i mean no phone can beat a jailbroken iPhone.

    Great iPhone hardware + 100% Customization via Jailbreak = CELLULAR BLISS!!

    .
    how is iOS "much simpler to use its ridiculous"? is it easier to text? make a call? share a photo? send an email? browse the web? give me a few examples please as I own both platforms and couldnt disagree with you more.

    "There are only a few things that Android excels... Airdroid and it's screen" lmfao at the lamest fanboy excuse Ive read all week.

    HE should be the one in charge of Apple and the iPhone as he would know how to release the smartphone that everyone would want.

    I would like to hear his side of jailbreaking and what he thinks about it.

    I 100% agree. Both are pathetic and bad for the iPhone.

    So they made a so called widescreen iPhone but they couldn't make it 16x9? HOW STUPID....

    You are the definition of rocked. I didn't attack his position; my first words actually were "I agree". I don't agree with Wozniak's constant need for attention by pretending to be relevant with what Apple does since when he was working there Apple was still selling the II.

    I didn't know the Woz had fanboys like you hanging around.

    It doesn't matter if Woz works at Apple, he's a user and that's who these gadgets are for.

    A very apt saying which we can apply here is, 'You don't have to be a Cook to complain about the cooking.'

    Woz baffles me, is he still relevant? I mean he sounds like any other android fans we have here. What he just spouted out is what I read here almost every day lol.

    This is news? Apple always lags behind in terms of features - its what they do. Its a double edged sword: on one hand yes, your Apple device is left "wanting"; but on the other, Apple does not want to dive into a technology that is not going to firmly establish itself in the market.

    What Apple needs to do is start expanding iOS - Ok, so don't open up the OS... but at least make 1st party extensions that expands on what the OS allows you to do... or just give everyone root access. Heck! I'd pay for Apple issued root access!!
