Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Makes Shocking Comments About the iPhone

steve wozniakIt's no secret that Steve Jobs hated the Google Android phone -- a blatant "stolen product" from Apple -- with the white-hot passion of a 1,000 suns. But Apple's co-founder, Steve Wozniak, begs to differ. In fact, he likes it better than the iPhone.

Wozniak recently said, "My primary phone is the iPhone. I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do." Wozniak admitted the iPhone is easier to use, but the Android just offers more. He continued, "If you're willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there's more available in some ways."

What is happening here? Did Wozniak really just say that? Out loud? He did! And then he bashed Siri!


Wozniak complained that Apple's super-hyped voice assistant had patchy service, and that its reliance on an Internet connection was annoying. He said, "With the iPhone 4 I could press a button and call my wife. Now on the 4S I can only do that when Siri can connect over the Internet. But many times it can’t connect. I’ve never had Android come back and say, ‘I can’t connect over the Internet.'''

Look, I get that Steve is no longer an employee of Apple -- and, don't get me wrong, he's made his love of the brand well-known, camping outside Apple stores to get the latest gadget and whatnot -- but if he really thinks the Android is better, why say it out loud. Also, why does he have two phones?

There's no doubt in my mind that if Steve Jobs were still here, he'd be pissed at his former colleague. And, come to think of it, Steve Wozniak probably wouldn't have said those things during an interview were Jobs around. So, it's actually a little disrespectful to boot.

I appreciate Steve's honesty -- and I'm sure Google does, too -- but, wow, way to be a traitor, dude. iReallyJustDon'tGetIt.

Do you think Steve should have kept quiet about the Android?
