With the iPhone already having done quite a bit of business in the United States and internationally over the past few years, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke up this week about how the company should - but probably won't - delve into Android. Suggesting that there's nothing holding Apple back from creating an Android device technically, Wozniak speaks with Wired on how Apple could enter a secondary market alongside the iPhone.
Steve Wozniak has been vocal about the new iPad Air, and while he wasn't critical of the device in general, he did say that it isn't a slate that is applicable to him. He went on to explain why, and in doing so revealed the perhaps more surprising detail about his home Internet, namely that he doesn't have broadband and it makes the iPad Air of little use.
During Ford’s Trend Conference at the company’s headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak sat in during a panel about driving distractions in vehicles and what solutions we could see in the future to limit these distractions in the car. Are touchscreens in the dashboard really the way to go? Do wearables like Google Glass cut down on distraction? We ended up getting to speak with Wozniak personally about in-vehicle technology, Google Glass, and even the new Mac Pro.
Ford CEO Alan Mulally took the stage today during the opening presentation of the company's Further with Ford conference and answered questions about going green and electric vehicles. As for what Ford has planned for its future, Mulally says that the company is "really committed" to electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as alternative fuels.
We're just two months away from the theatrical release of JOBS, the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher as the Apple man himself. After being screened earlier this year to a limited audience, the movie is getting its first trailer released unto the public, and it gives us a glimpse as to what to expect come August 16.
The highly-anticipated biopic on the late Steve Jobs will see a nationwide theatrical release on August 16. JOBS, as it's called, was initially shown at the Sundance Film Festival back in January with a release date later in April. However, the film was eventually delayed with no rescheduled date disclosed. However, it seems we'll finally get to see the movie later in the summer.
When we think of computers the thought of a 37 year old handmade system from 1976 doesn't sound too exciting. However, today that's exactly what was just auctioned off for charity and hit a record breaking price. One of the very first Apple 1 computers, which still works by the way, was sold this morning for $671,400.
Today several bits of a couple of speeches made by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and another Macintosh legend have surfaced via a friendly holder of several VHS recordings of a 1984 meeting of the Apple Pi computer club. These tapes recorded Woz and Apple Employee #6 Randy Wigginton speaking at the Denver Apple Pi computer club back on October 4th 1984, and are being digitized and cleaned for your enjoyment this weekend. Don't miss the "Pledge of Apple Allegiance", whatever you do.
Apple may be referred to as the house that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built, but it's not the only house that the Woz built, actually. He also designed a modern home in Los Gatos, California in 1986. However, it's been for sale off and on for the past year, but it's back on the market now with a $4.4 million price tag.
File this under "Steve Wozniak says the dardnest things." The co-founder of Apple is at it again and is criticizing Apple over its cool factor. Wozniak says that while the company is good at "setting a standard with a new device," Apple is ultimately starting to lose its cool vibe that they've been going after for so many years.
This isn't the first time that Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has given the company a hard time, and it probably won't be his last, but today the co-founder said that Apple has fallen somewhat behind in the smartphone market with their iPhone, which is allowing competitors -- namely Samsung -- to catch up.
