Co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak worried Microsoft is more innovative than Apple
The co-founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak was interviewed at TEDx Brussels by TechCrunch, where the technological genius was asked how he felt about the advances Microsoft is making in both the PC and smartphone markets. So how does Wozniak view the new Microsoft? He's worried for Apple, and for good reason.

The Apple guru has previously picked up a Lumia 900, choosing the Windows Phone over Android and stating that the operating system is "intuitive and beautiful". Wozniak also was recorded in revealing he's excited about Microsoft and sees a new company re-entering the PC and mobile markets. This is all leading up to him being concerned for Apple.

Apple has continuously been viewed as the innovative technology giant that surpassed Microsoft in many ways, including public interaction (the Apple stores) and presentation (Steve Jobs and his famous keynotes). The advertisement campaign that Apple launched attacking PC as a boring platform was true in a way - it's how consumers viewed Microsoft. Office, spreadsheets and Vista.

Microsoft has since changed. In more ways than one. The launch of Windows Phone brought something new to the table. Everyone wondered what the then software giant was planning for the future. Then Windows 8 was unveiled with multiple public previews. This is when the game changed, when Microsoft fought back against Apple.

I see iPhones used by children. I see iPhones used by teenagers. I see iPhone used by heavy-metal neandertals. And senior citizens. And all sorts of people in media and marketing that think it's cool.

They are probably all brushing up their Facebook updates and sharing pictures of themselves. In shopping, cooking, holidays, partying.

Make imaginary jump to stone-age. Now give them iPhone and Facebook. Wow, this is cool, they think.

This is what is happening now.

Where are 3d-projecting interfaces? When can I interact better ways than pushing buttons, or entering text, speaking, clicking links, registering into sites, watching endless stream of advertizing, playing games, browsing long list to select, downloading updates?

Digital technology and culture is like a photo-copying machine going mad, making endless repeats. Cool innovations are certainly needed.

Steve Wozniak is one of those guys that most of us just like, regardless of what platform we use or how we feel about Apple. Not only is he one of the founding fathers of the personal computer revolution, he tells things how it is and isn't afraid to be honest, regardless of his affiliation with Apple. When speaking at TEDx Brussels, TechCrunch got a few moments afterwards with WoZ.
While Steve is still a big Apple fan, TechCrunch asked a good question: Does he think Microsoft has become more innovative than Apple in recent years? His answer was interesting. Basically he applauds Microsoft for going in a new direction with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. He also mentions the “universal translator”-like device by Microsoft Research that he says looks very innovative. [link to www.mobilemag.com]
