iPad for the people, was the message when Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs, spoke at the Storage Networking World in Santa Clara, California.
“The tablet is not necessarily for people in this room. It’s for the normal people of the world,” said Wozniak, who now works for storage company Fusion-io.
It had always been a dream of Steve Jobs’ create a computer that was simple enough for everyone to use, said Wozniak, “but it was just hard to get there. Because we had to go through a lot of steps where you connected to things, and [eventually] computers grew up to where they could do … normal consumer appliance things.”
Wozniak remains loyal to the company he founded, brushing off the prediction that Android tablets will overtake the iPad: “On the subject of tablets, I read today that Android tablets are expected to surpass iPads, and I hope that never happens.”
