I will collect all the articles about how Woz was anti-Apple inside Apple itself, so I will prove his media function is to be the oppostite, rational side of Apple, because those articles make for a strange turbulence between fanboys/haters.

I did expect the iPhone 5 to be different; not drastic changes, like a changed shape or new layout, but they could have at least expanded the screen outward as well. Making it taller doesn't change too much. If you look at the Galaxy S phones, they changed the size with each one. Starting with 4.3" for the original S, 4.5" for the S II (Sprint and T-Mobile models), and now 4.7" for the S III. Is it so hard for Apple to do something like that?
3GS, the 4, and the 4S kept the same size. Now the 5 went about a third of an inch taller, and it still looks the same as the other iPhones. Woz is right; they are arrogant.

So basically Apple is sticking to their guns and saying they were right even when they messed up? Sounds like basic Apple MO to me. They never admit fault untill it's their only option left.

Come on everyone knows Apple is afraid its core buyers will not buy a tablet if the screen is larger.

If Apple ever releases a "phablet", Jobs will really roll in his grave. He would have been incredulous at the success of the Galaxy Notes.

Steve Wozniak had always been a technical guy, not a marketing guy, certainly not a marketing genius like Jobs. I'm not an Apple product owner (yet), but you have to give credits where it's due. Apple's unprecedented success is largely due to Steve Jobs' vision and personality. Steve Wozniak is probably a nice guy, but if he was running the company, Apple probably wouldn't be in existence now, let alone the most valuable tech company in the world. If you agree with Wozniak's assessment, you're probably not Apple's target customers, and it looks like they're doing just fine without you.
