The Woz took to Reddit to do the ever popular Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) where he was asked a variety of questions ranging from the Apple Watch to Tim Cook. The Woz is generally a straight shooter when it comes to talking tech. While he’s one of the co-founders of Apple, he has given his share of critiques about the company over the years. At one point he sang the praises of Android over iOS and now generally accepts both operating systems as viable solutions to consumers needs. At yesterday’s AMA The Woz shot straight about the Apple Watch and I couldn’t agree with him more.
“I worry a little bit about – I mean I love my Apple Watch, but – it’s taken us into a jewelry market where you’re going to buy a watch between $500 or $1100 based on how important you think you are as a person. The only difference is the band in all those watches. Twenty watches from $500 to $1100. The band’s the only difference?
Well this isn’t the company that Apple was originally, or the company that really changed the world a lot. So it might be moving, but you’ve got to follow, you know. You’ve got to follow the paths of where the markets are.”
“Everything else, I’m very approving of Tim Cook, because every time we have a new iOS update, I’m very happy that it’s doing things that really affect people. Like transferring calls from my phone to my computer, etc. I really love even the Airplay, and all that.”
Point well made Mr. Woz, point well made.
