• More Fallout from Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak "Misquote"

    Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has turned the blogosphere upside down twice this past week. First, in a recently published interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Wozniak was quoted saying that smartphones running Google's Android mobile operating system will likely have a better and brighter future than Apple's very own iPhone. It's a comment that got everyone in the tech space talking, including PC World, which published the following on Thursday:

    Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak thinks Android will eventually beat the iPhone as a mobile-phone platform in much the same way Windows computers squeezed Apple's market share in the PC market.
    As word of Woz's comments spread like wildfire, the Apple co-founder soon reached out to various media sources to set the record straight. According to Woz, he was "misquoted." And everyone ran with the "misquote." So what did Woz really say? More importantly, what did he mean? Assuming he isn't being misquoted again, Wozniak now says he would "never" make such a sweeping statement about Android being better than iOS.

    Wozniak is clearly backpedaling from this "misquote", likely feeling the backlash from Apple-bashing. Wozniak now says that his comments about Android devices becoming more popular than the iPhone are simply based on what he's reading. His reiteration of those comments was not a statement of personal belief. Wozniak wants the world to know that he doesn't necessarily think that Android is superior to the iOS. Naturally, the latest round of comments from Woz leaves many Apple fans to believe that the Apple co-founder was simply misquoted by a publication looking to stir the pot. Others, however, feel Woz simply stated his beliefs too liberally and is now busy with damage control.

    So was Woz really misquoted... or did he simply say too much? You be the judge.
