Who else thinks things would be so much better if Steve Wozniak was running Apple?

iPhones would be sold unlocked, jailbreaking wouldnt be stopped, the App Store would be less restricted, Macs would be cheaper or more cheaper options would be available... The list goes on.

What do you think?

if iphones would be sold unlocked, they wouldnt be making as much money as they are today.

apple's portable devices (namely iPod) have saved the company

If Woz were ever the CEO, this forum would be about fruit.

I think all except for your first point are bad reasons.

Woz, although a GREAT guy, would be a terrible CEO. Hes stated that he has absolutly no interest in business because he loves being an engineer. The company would spend TOO much time innovating and wed be hit with something new practically every other week.

I do reallly like woz tho.

Read his book, it was fascinating. iWoz

Yeah, spose your right about that one.

I do wish he had a high-up position at Apple designing all the new products and software... Not managing anything coz yeah I forgot he hates that.

iWoz is a great read for any Apple fan... Its my favorite book! :)

Apple can innovate, they did a lot of it and created orphaned technologies on a massive scale. The developers said, nice, cool, what are we going to do with it.

Need somebody up top that can cut those down a bit by showing the developers what can be done with the tech and letting them scream bloody murder to be let in on it.
