I find it somewhat odd that you managed to spell Palo Alto just fine but couldn't spell important.AoWolf said:I have heard his a kind of odd. My uncle who is a in palo alto (sp?) cop has pulled both him and Steve jobs over. He said that woz went off on him screaming about how importuned he was and how much money he had in the bank.
Of course, he's just angry because they won't load on his Apple IIgs since there is no optical drive.wordmunger said:As someone in the slashdot thread pointed out, Woz only uses Apple products. No wonder they're the buggiest products he uses.
No, it's the wacko Apple cult press. In the full interview he goes on to say that Apple are overall doing things better than anyone else, but if MacDailyNews quoted that part there wouldn't be an opportunity for the cult to express righteous indignation.yellow said:It seems to me that sWoz is ALWAYS ****ting on Apple. Is it just me?
Read the whole article. Woz still loves Apple, he's just very critical.yellow said:It seems to me that sWoz is ALWAYS ****ting on Apple. Is it just me?
Stafford: Is it difficult having started this phenomenon of a company any maybe not agreeing with some of its decisions?
Woz: Oh no, I agree with it so much. There's just a few areas that are my own values cause me to be a perfectionist, but I do not go criticizing Apple very much at all. I mean, no, I love every part of the Apple world. You can look with your eyes and just see that it always has - every version of Macintosh, including the PowerBooks - the most beautiful product quality and they generally tend to lead the others in terms of qualities you like -- thinness, size of screen, pixels on the screen. The whole world of Apple works together.
It's not just this article. It seems every sWoz article I read, he's ultra-ultra-critical of Apple. It's good he's no fanboi, but would it kill him to just once say "iPhoto is teh ****!"? I guess I shouldn't believe everything I read.Chaszmyr said:Read the whole article. Woz still loves Apple, he's just very critical.
All he is saying is that Apple turns out some bad software, not any good software. And last time I checked, I use Adium and NetNewsWire far more than I do any of my other apps...I get the worst, worst software almost always from Apple.
... and OS X, Logic and GarageBand, Final Cut, Safari, AppleWorks, iDVD, Filemaker ...swingerofbirch said:In fact, a lot of Apple's recent innovations have been adaptations or acquisitions from the third party market (Sound Jam MP, Konfabulator).
rosalindavenue said:Woz is a great inventor. However, he needs to go buy a dell and load it full of windows apps-- his opinion on what constitutes the "worst, worst software;" should change in a hurry.
