iPod faces imminent death, Woz said

Posted on Saturday, October 11 2008 @ 04:17:08 CEST by


Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had an interview with Telegraph, you can check it out over here. One of the more interesting things he predicted is the death of Apple's iPod:
I begin to wonder whether he was even briefed by the Apple press office when he predicts the imminent death of the company's most popular product, the iPod.

"The iPod has sort of lived a long life at number one," he says. "Things like, that if you look back to transistor radios and Walkmans, they kind of die out after a while.

"It's kind of like everyone has got one or two or three. You get to a point when they are on display everywhere, they get real cheap and they are not selling as much."
Wozniak also gave Apple the advice to give developers more freedom on the iPhone as Google's Android is much better in that area: Mr Wozniak even speaks out against the iPhone 3G, Apple's latest cult product which caused pandemonium in the West End when it was launched in Apple's Regent Street store this summer.

"Consumers aren't getting all they want when companies are very proprietary and lock their products down," he says when comparing the iPhone's closed operating system to the new Google phone's open source system which allows anyone to modify and adapt the way the phone works. "I would like to write some more powerful apps than what you're allowed," he laments.
