Woz showers Android with praise

Written by

iLove it


Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak is an avid iPhone user, but unlike fanboys spawned by the company he helped create, the great Woz seems to be rather objective and down to earth.

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Woz had some words of praise for Google’s Android, although he admits he still loves the iPhone.

"I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do," he said.

His main beef with iOS seems to be Siri. Woz argued that Siri had gone a bit daft, making itself quite useless for the geek on the go.

"Now it just misses. It gives me real estate listings. I used to ask, 'What are the prime numbers greater than 87?' and it would answer. Now instead of getting prime numbers, I get listings for prime rib, or prime real estate," he said. So it seems Siri is slowly becoming a bit shallow, which comes as no surprise as it’s learning from average iOS users.

Woz says he still recommends the iPhone, but Android has superior GPS navigation and battery life. Well, to be honest, neither iOS nor Android have much to brag about in the battery department. Woz adds that iOS is easier to use and not as complex as Android, so it’s a better choice for novice smartphone users or people used to the Mac ecosystem.
