Why do we even care what mobile phone someone else chooses? We had a thread here a few weeks ago showing Bill Gates' daughter holding what looked like and iPod/iPhone. Both operating systems have pros and cons and everyone should be able to choose for themselves which is best for them without being scrutinized about their choice. This includes people who work for or are related to people who work for Apple, Microsoft and Google.

Not really to happy about it. I think in the future after Steve's plans are all done for what he kept wanting to see next with Apple, Android and Apple will get together. There strong as separate entities, but will be huge together.... Just my 2cents..

Woz has always been the tinkerer, I mean, that's exactly how he built the Apple 2, to be the tinkerer's dream. All sorts of stuff you could do with it (compared to other machines at the time), and it was a little scary for people who didn't know how to use it or didn't want to learn how to use it. So I'm not surprised, and it's not a bad thing in the least that he likes Android. I really don't like the linkbaiting headline, though. Note that Woz still says, "My primary phone is the iPhone," which completely contradicts the headline.

Because our quest for good writing skills is ongoing and eternal.
Isn't that what eiC was all about? Fine by me, noticed my English is plummeting faster than the global economy? Not that it was ever great.
I like constructive criticism and I appreciate it more than you think.

Or, "Wasn't that what eiC was all about?" Not sure if tense consistency applies to this situation but it's good to be aware of it ;)
I'm gonna quiz every customer that comes in today and see how many get it right. That should be interesting.

true dat but he has to say that ortherwise he risks loosing thoes hefty checks he still receives from Apple. and he also said this "
The Android system also delivers better results, he says. “I have a lower success rate with Siri than I do with the voice built into the Android, and that bothers me,” Woz says. “I’ll be saying, over and over again in my car, ‘Call the Lark Creek Steak House,’ and I can’t get it done. Then I pick up my Android, say the same thing, and it’s done. Plus I get navigation. Android is way ahead on that.”
Another gripe involves battery life. “With the iPhone, something happened with the new OS or the new phone, and it just started running through the battery so fast,” he says. “I’ve had a lot of issues with things I have to turn off just to save the battery life.” in laymens terms that translates to if you want a phone that just works get an Android:) he also says what i have been saying for awhile is that my andoid phone gets better battery life than the iPhone. so much for all the peeps who said Apple didn't put things like flash,led notifier,bigger screen,4g etc... because it kills battery life. seems that some Android phones don't have thoes issues. if they can do it why not Apple?
