Apple's co-founder, Steve Wozniak, spoke at a broadband conference in Australia. In a Q&A session with journalists, Wozniak spent some time relating his thoughts about some of Apple's newest products.
In general, he had similar thoughts and concerns as many readers have had on Apple's iPhone and MacBook Air. Specifically, Woz found that lack of 3G on the iPhone to be surprising:
I dont understand why it would be a battery issue. I get as much life on my 3G phones as I do on my non-3G phones. Maybe Im wrong, maybe Im not paying close enough attention. But I dont think thats it though.
On the MacBook Air, while he likes the design, he remains uncertain if it will fit into his lifestyle:
The MacBook Air actually I like it. At first, I thought, its so feature-missing, and I use I burn DVDs a lot to pass files to other people. I watch movies on airplanes. I need one that will go an entire flight and switch batteries, when theres sometimes no power on the plane.
Ironically, Woz also relates how his comments on Apple may get taken out of context:
[Jobs] calls me and he says he doesnt like something that I was reputed to have said. But he gets it out of context. A reporters seized on a comment and strung along with that. Im very positive on Apple, but Ill also point out things that could be better, or arent the way Id like them to be.
To that point, several journalists have picked up this story with a very negative slant:
