Woz: ‘Arrogant’ Apple should have made a large version of the iPhone
posted by Victor H. / Oct 11, 2012, 9:12 AM
Woz is one of our favorite people in tech not just because of his legacy, but also because of his honesty to speak out what he sees right even when it could turn out to be harmful for his company.
What about you? Do you want a bigger iPhone?

apple would be very smart if they were to bring woz back. they need a face and voice for the company. i think woz would be perfect. he really seems to understand the landscape as well. that might truly make them an inovating company again, instead of a profit hungry one.

M y niece an iPhone fanatic could not be told about any thing other than iPhone. That is until she played with my GS3 a few months ago, and after having the new iPhone for a week sent it back in exchange for the new in coming note 2. I asked her what made her change her mind, and she said it was no different than her iPhone 4, and was boring when compared to my GS3. She said the note pen and stats were better spec'd than my GS3, and the "phablet" appealed to her more than the new iPhone. The funny thing is that she said she liked how simple the iPhone was to use when compared to my GS3 and that it was her phone of choice since its introduction when she was playing with my GS3 back then. She said the new iPhone fell behind Android based on the iPhone 5 functionality over all.

The sarcastic way of saying it: "Apple arrogant? Noooooooo..........." and you could than add "sarcasm" not to confuse 50% of the readers:)

Apple is notorious for making grand, adamant statements about their products, and other's products too. Instead of living in a world of absolutes that come back to haunt them, they need to open their eyes to how the world and tech is changing, then embrace it. Their "we know what's best for you" attitude isn't cutting it, Woz nailed it with statements on making two phones. Android is dominating in sales because one size doesn't fit all approach.

The main problem is Apple wouldn't be able to maximize profits if they made 2 sizes of phones. That would required 2 production lines and the amoun tof profit on each device would be lower. They are simply too concerned with profit margins. Conversely, every other phone maker's profits per device pale in comparison to iPhones, but there's a trade-off each way you look at it.

That silly commercial they run about the laws of physics and your thumb.... I mean, seriously apple. It's nice to hear someone with so much authority calling them out on that for what it truly is: arrogance.

If apple had two concurrent iphone models they wouldnt be able to post those big sales figures. Why make split sales between two products when they know everyone will buy the singlular model? Ugh I'm going to stop reading these apple articles. I'm perfectly happy with my sgs3.

Actually apple lumps all their iphone sales figures into one, they don't differentiate between OG, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, and 4Stretch, whereas other OEMs will, i.e. Galaxy S2 vs Galaxy S3, and then total sales figures for the entire Galaxy line

No they don't. Whenever Apple releases sales figures, they specify by model. Some news agencies may group them, but their quarterly earnings report breaks them up by model. The only time Apple lumps all models together for comparison is if they are talking about iOS adoption rates. In those cases they will say this is how many folks are on iOS 6 versus the latest version of Android.
