Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder, talked about some of Apple's recent products in an interview. He says the switch to Intel is like consorting with the enemy, and advised to spin off the iPod business as soon as possible to focus on computers.
In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Wozniak recalled Apple's long tradition of "saying the enemy is the big black-hatted guys." That tradition will be difficult to maintain, he asserted, when Apple computers run on the same chips as Microsoft. From an engineering standpoint, however, Wozniak admitted that the move to use Intel chips could be beneficiary, though he said he still had lingering questions about whether or not the move was truly necessary.
