Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak sat down for an interview today with CNBC.
In the interview, he touched on several topics, including what he thinks of Apple today.
Woz started out by saying that he loves that Apple is continuing to put people above technology, noting that Steve Jobs would be “very happy with Apple today.”
I believe that he would be very happy with the company today and its concern more with end users and putting people above technology. Steve always acted that way. The users should be more important than the technology itself. You should not be a victim of the technology and what it can do. You should get to live your human life in the most human way possible.
He goes on to say that other smartphone manufacturers aren’t really innovating. Instead, they are just creating fun features. Meanwhile, Apple is focusing on innovations that “literally affect everything we do all the time in life.” He believes that new features aren’t inherently innovative. For example, on various Android phones you can smile and the phone takes a picture. Woz says it’s a “fun feature”, but it’s not “innovation.”
