Well, I hate to shiat all over your dreams, Jay Leno style, but this isn't exactly a surprise from Woz, history and career considered.

Yes, I love him, too.

"iPhone fangirls" do it different, right?
They have an AP for "That?"

Purchase the "Garfunkel" AP.

I always hoped I'd meet a fangirl and fall in love. We could discuss what we read on macrumors and engadget over dinner. Instead I've got a Bravo loving fool :)

At least The Woz is less of an iDouche than all the Apple iFans.

Why are we sobbing again?

Because a guy who was associated with Apple twenty years ago likes a phone from a different company?

/and they say Apple people are fanatical cultists...

Actually the guy is still considered an Apple employee and shareholder so he has some associations.

I thought I read that Wozniak had a stroke, was taken over by aliens, preferred New Coke or some such
 
2010-01-15 03:56:34 AM  
Is anyone surprised? Woz was well along the road to enlightenment long, long ago.

You can walk that road if you want. But first you must trade your love of the shiny for the love of the truly elegant.

snakespm: Anyone care to compare there experiences with Google's OS(either droid or nexus one) vs the iPhone?


I own the mytouch and the iphone, both of them I think work great. Both are also unlocked,rooted, and jailbroken so I get a lot of abilities to install everything I want. Ironically my current theme on my iphone is to mimic the HTC Hero Sense UI because I find it easier to deal with. I wish I could get my hands on the Nexus One it has a lot faster processor and a lot better screen which make it more of a good iphone vs android battle.

For me the Nexus One and the Xperia X10 are some of the best Android phones and honest to god solid efforts to try and compete with Apple. They both have the 1ghs snapdragon processor which is considerably faster than the Iphone3gs and they both have a lot better cameras. In the case of the Xperia x10 it has a very solid 8mbp which takes incredible pictures. I know my next phone will be one of these Android is just starting to grow and become an extremely nice platform to use and these phones have so much to offer.

It's funny watching people who can't afford a decent computer making fun of those who can.

If you think PCs are better than Macs, you either:

A) Have never owned or used a Mac

B) Can't afford a Mac and enjoy crying sour grapes

C) Are farking delusional

D) All of the above

Really got some nice toys here.

The Nexus One will be good for about a year. The iPhone 3GS has about six months. They have a lot in common. Similar problems. Accelerated decrepitude.

I want more life, farker.

It's "fanboi" so "fangrrrl" surely?

Wozniak has always been pure nerd - his Android fandom is not surprising. Jobs just had the acumen to employ enough nerds to make him unnecessary :)

Thanks, honestly I enjoy the hell out of both of them. Both serve a good purpose and get a lot done. It is nice to see the whole Android OS size being as small as it is and do so much. the app stores for both phones are starting to mimic each other so finding an app that is exactly the same on both is very very easy or one that at least does the same is not hard.

For me though I have used an Iphone pretty much exclusively since it was launched in 07 and it's refreshing to see a new OS that isn't Windows Mobile or Blackberry based. I have had every flavor of OS you could put on a mobile phone and I was glad to see Android show up and will be anxious to see how it matures and grows up since it is still pretty young. I am all for a cellphone and cellphone service price war I say bring it on.

Fair enough, as long as you admit to being a part of the whiny, malcontent, PC user image!

"I don't like treating it like a religion," said Wozniak. " I don't like telling people that they're bad or wrong [for picking a particular device]. The right computer for you, based upon your family income and your type of work, might be a PC and not a Macintosh."

I'm eyeballing that Nexus, my current phone is still a dumb Razr.

Yeah, you're the one still using a computer that requires a tremendous amount of "figuring out" on a near daily basis, I upgrade to a comuter that requires ZERO figuring out, and I'm the stupid one. Riiiight... Shouldn't you be updating your virus protection or defragmenting your hard drive right about now?

No dude, I'm not nerdy, which might be the reason why I'm not willing to put the time and effort into farking with PCs anymore. I just want my computer to run because I don't enjoy farking with them at all. I have to fark with these dreadful things here at work while debugging RS Logix all night long, I'm well aware of what they entail. It's just that I refuse to put up with that shiat in the comfort of my mom's basement, that's all.

Maybe using a PC is a problem if you're computer illiterate/don't know anything about the internets, because my dad does have a lot of problems with his computers, probably because he clicks links he shouldn't. I play it fast and lose with the antivirus and most of the time turn it off so as not to hog resources, and I almost never have problems with those things.

Also, everyone talks about how Macs never crash, but I've had to force quit stuff every once in a while. Not as much as I had to with the initial release of Vista, but almost a little more than with XP Pro.

I totally know what you mean, man. That's why all my shoes have Velcro instead of those complicated laces. I'm not some nerd with no life, so I don't have time to learn all this string crap. Strings are dangerous anyway. I nearly hanged myself once before I switched over.
