The WOZ looks out at what Apple has become. He sees how financial and growth oriented it is. He's muted or unheard when speaking up. In his era, Macs were given to schools; by the 1000s. The idea of; anyone should have access; no matter their position in life. Now, it's limited to those those willing to dive deep in to endless credit debt, or have rich parents.

I love Apple. I also know, and recognize, what Apple has become. Hi Tim. Hi Jony.

Any company should be financially orientated and want to grow, otherwise they won't be around for long. Companies are not there to provide a free service, they are there to make money. Apple years ago had a lot less staff, a lot less stores, a lot less to pay out for in comparison to where the company is today.

Macs were given to schools, so that students would grow up using Mac's and thus once becoming working adults, buying Mac's and other Apple devices. It's great business practise, and one where other companies missed a trick.
