Talk about wishful thinking. In an interview with BBC’s technology programme Click, Apple’s Co-founder – Steve Wozniak suggest that Apple and Google should put aside their differences and team up in the future.
Sometimes I say ‘Go to Joe’s Diner’ and [Siri] doesn’t know where Joe’s Diner is. And very often usually I find out that Android does.
That is actually the future of intelligence probably for computers getting smarter and getting artificial intelligence. I wish to God that Apple and Google were partners in the future.
I don’t know. If I were there, it would be pretty likely. I’m probably wrong, there’s probably an awful lot I don’t know about the business concerns and one thing you’ve got to remember is a company has always got to make money.
I believe you should have a world where you’ve got to license something at a fair price. There are good things I see on Samsung phones that I wish were in my iPhone. I wish Apple would use them and could use them, and I don’t know if Samsung would stop us.
I wish everybody just did a lot of cross-licensing and sharing the good technology, all our products would be better, we’d go further. I do wish they were more compatible.
I love Woz to bits, but seriously? Where has he been for the last six years? In 2007 Steve Jobs invited Google’s CEO on stage to share in the iPhone success. In return, the company copied the iPhone OS and gave it away to competitors for free. And now Steve Woznaik wants Apple to license their intellectual property to the likes of Samsung at a “fair price.” If this happens, Apple might as well close down operations and return the money to investors!
