It's not hard to see why we love Steve Wozniak. Co-creator of one of the largest companies in the world, and there is not one thing phony about him. Even at 62 there is an air of coolness
around him that you could never find in men half his age. Speaking at a forum in Mexico City, The Woz told those attending that Apple remains "a great company," and is merely in a waiting period between innovative products. He chided those who want Apple to produce a game changing device every quarter by saying that you cannot have a revolution in consumer electronics every year. "I think Apple is in one of these waiting periods waiting for the next big direction
," he said.
With Apple in the midst of trying to trademark the iWatch name globally (something that will run into problems for the company in China, U.K. and the U.S.
), Wozniak not only hinted about the upcoming iWatch, he also gave away some of its functionality. Wozniak told the audience in Mexico City that devices are getting smaller. He then said that he wished he had the old version of the Apple iPhone
on his wrist
and could ask it questions like Siri and play music. Sounds like a blatant hint to us as to what to expect the iWatch to be able to do.
"I think, oh my gosh, I just wish I had the old iPhone right here on my wrist and I wish I could ask it questions like a new Siri (voice assistant technology) or tell it to play certain music."-Steve Wozniak, co-founder, Apple
