1. It's Woz, not Waz

2wolves: 2. That man doesn't do suits and they don't do him.


Yeah, I was thinking along the lines of "Woz, buddy, your net worth allows you to buy at least one suit that fits well. Pay for it in $2 bills if it makes you feel better."

This, of course, automatically means that every iPhone will immediately turn to dust in their owners' pockets, and Tim Cook will be arrested in Shenzen next week after being caught in bed with an eleven-year-old Foxconn employee. And then Android-based tablets will suddenly not suck.

He's a portly dude but that doesn't excuse the jacket sleeves being 2 inches too long. It always surprises me when the ultra-rich can't dress themselves - which is pretty much all of them who aren't rich from acting. Woz could spend what he makes in a few hours and get a stylist hired for an entire year. He could still keep the whole King of Nerds look but not look stupid doing it.

That's not what the article says at all. He says that The windows OS is by far superior TO ANDROID, but he still prefers iOS.

Why is news or posts about apple, either for or against, always so bad?

Woz suffered brain damage in an airplane crash.
He was relieved of all responsibilities at Apple shortly after.
He has not been relevant to Apple in 20+ years.

It starts with a gap in a persons character. The obsession with someone else's accomlishment fills the viod.

Even though "He did note, however, that the iPhones - one from AT&T, one from Verizon - remain his preferred mobile devices. "

Because we've reached the point where we could no more have a reasoned discussion about Microsoft vs Apple (or Apple vs anything else) than we could Israel vs anyone. No matter what the facts of the case the passions of the adherents of the opposing sides turn it instantly into a flame war. This new MS phone could be the best ever but (a) you would never convince the Apple fanbois of that any more than Zionists would give up the West Bank, and (b) it's a freaking phone. Do you really care so much about a fancy toy you'd spend your time getting pissed off and abusing people you've never met?

FTFY, but the foundation was solid.

Anyways, he still likes the iPhone best, as expected, but it does show that Windows Phone is a viable contender and that Nokia can still make a good product. It's really hard not to like Woz. When someone makes a good product, he gives them credit.

theurge14: Kell Bartok: And what exactly has Woz done in the last 20 years besides give interviews and eat cake?

Yeah. I mean, there's a certain range of net worth and lifetime achievement where it's okay to make fun of a guy for his weight. Wozniak, on the other hand, is one of the fathers of the personal computer, has a few billion in the bank, and won an Atari competition to reduce the number of ICs on the board by proposing a design so small and tight, the production lines of the time couldn't replicate it. So yeah, he's fat, but it's only because the average human build couldn't contain the amount of awesome he possesses. Bill Gates might be King of the Nerds, but Woz is the King of the Hackers.

So?
 
2012-04-29 04:36:52 PM
Doesn't matter. MS didn't care about phones and Apple and Google stepped in while Ballmer was still laughing at the iPhone. By the time they got their shiat together it was too late. They even dropped the ball with development. You can develop in Silverlight (that no Windows developer is trying to learn) or XNA (which seems like it may not work fully on Windows Metro). I know a lot of Windows devs, and not one of them has given it a go (in fact, Xamarin which allows MS devs to develop for iPhone and Android is more popular).

And fighting open source, once it gets traction is really hard. Android just hits so many different types of customers.

Actually.... Jobs would most likely have agreed with this. He hated Android because he thought it was a poor copy of iOS.

Silverlight isn't too bad, really. XNA seems to work fine on my phone, but then again, I haven't been gaming much in these past few weeks.

Android isn't insurmountable. The HTC One and Droid Razr Maxx are anomalies in the market, in many ways, due to their high quality. When you get down into the middle-range and budget handsets, quality control begins to suffer, and Android begins to suck. Microsoft and Nokia have given at least some stabs at the budget segment, and if I were given the choice between the Lumia 710 and your run-of-the-mill Android device, I'd far prefer the 710 in terms of quality.

However, they really, really need to get Verizon and Sprint on board. Windows Phone won't be a real competitor until then.

/prays they don't let the carriers and OEMs fark with Apollo too much.
//make handsets and provide the service. Let Microsoft make the software, you morons.

No.
I just don't understand why "news" organizations run to Woz for his reaction to anything involving Apple.
He has not been involved with them or had anything to do them in decades.

You want stories about blue boxes, lasers or carrying around sheets of uncut money-talk to Woz.
 
2012-04-29 06:04:20 PM
Jobs would only be rolling in his grave because he can't figure out how to screw the real innovator, Woz, out of more money.

I had an Iphone 3gs which was ok, but I liked the new Windows OS. Switched over, and other than the occasional missing app or game, I really like it much more than the iPhone.

/Would like a bit more customization in the color scheme, but that's a minor complaint.
