The Woz Says Microsoft Is Out-Innovating Apple

Most people are quick to associate Steve Wozniak with Apple, the company that he co-founded with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne. However, that doesn’t mean that he always sings the praises of new iPhones and Macbooks. In fact, in a recent interview with Andrew Keen from TechCrunch, the Woz expressed his concern that Microsoft is out-innovating Apple.

Whereas Apple is “just used to cranking out the newest iPhone and falling a little behind,” Wozniak says that Microsoft is producing “more of the type of innovation where you see something and you say, ‘Whoa, they really changed things drastically, whoa, they aren’t really even going in the same direction as everyone else.’”

You could look at a product like the Microsoft Surface and how it could change the way we look at tablets. You could look at the rise of convertible ultrabooks that serve double-duty as both notebooks and touchscreen tablets. And you could even look at what the Surface Phone and how the whole ecosystem ties up together with Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Phone 8.

Innovative Microsoft? That used to be an oxymoron. What would you say Apple is doing to “change things all over again”?
