Steve Wozniak In TechCruch: Is Microsoft More Innovative Than Apple? [VIDEO]
He explains that Microsoft's newest voice recognition advancement (where you can speak into a phone in one language and have it speak back to you in another) is an example of the type of innovation companies need to be doing in order to win. Rather than simply making improvements on old products, companies (Apple included) need to be coming up with out-of-the-box ideas that are astounding and different. He says that improving is not the style of innovation Apple should be following; rather, that they need to go back to what put them on top—inventing. While he's a loyal Apple lover, Wozniak also said that he will use different products from different platforms to be able to get a holistic understanding of all the new technology out there. Similar to other tech-savvy consumers, he will buy the product that does a task the best—and if Apple doesn't step up their game, companies like Microsoft may be plucking up Apple customers.
An in-demand speaker, Wozniak's insights are highly sought after. His views on technology and its intersection with society are intriguing and extremely candid. He helps audiences keep up with the trends of today and opens their imaginations to what the next big thing might be tomorrow.
