Steve Wozniak says complexity of Apple Watch lineup ‘worries’ him, sides with Apple in FBI fight
Steve Wozniak today has done an ‘Ask Me Anything’ on Reddit, taking questions HP0-J67 from users on variety of topics. Wozniak, who also gave a video interview for Reddit’s new Formative series, discussed things such as Tim Cook, Apple’s battle with the FBI, Apple Watch, and much more.
One of the most notable questions centered on Wozniak’s C2150-537 approval of Tim Cook as Apple’s CEO. Wozniak explained that overall he thinks Cook is doing a great job. He praised Cook’s attitude of putting the customers and employees of Apple first, a tradition that Steve Jobs worked hard to set. Specifically, Wozniak pointed out that Apple is willing to delve into the C2140-839 advertising game of “knowing you and advertising to you” in order to make money, something Tim Cook has spoken about in the past.
One thing that Cook has done that Wozniak worries about, however, is the complexity of the Apple Watch lineup. Wozniak points out that there are “twenty watches from $500 to $1100” where the band is the only real difference. Wozniak is quick to remind us though, that he “loves” his Apple Watch.
I worry a little bit about – I mean I love my Apple Watch, but – it’s taken us into a jewelry market where you’re going to buy a watch between $500 or $1100 based on how important you C2150-537 think you are as a person. The only difference is the band in all those watches. Twenty watches from $500 to $1100. The band’s the only difference? Well this isn’t the company that Apple was originally, or the company that really C2150-533 changed the world a lot. So it might be moving, but you’ve got to follow, you know. You’ve got to follow the paths of where the markets are.
Building on that, Wozniak pointed out that these days he is wearing an Apple Watch almost daily and that he has a steel model, noting that he enjoys being able to quickly reply to texts and C2150-596 communicate without taking his phone out of his pocket. Wozniak also noted that one of his favorite hands-free devices, however, is Amazon’s Echo as it allows him to “not even have to get out of the sheets in bed to use it.”
I had some other smart watches, and I C4030-671 got turned off. One of them I kinda liked actually, called the Martian Watch. It was a very very simple one, but you could talk Siri commands into it. But I had the first Galaxy Gear, and after half a day, it just turned me off that it was separated; it felt C2180-188 between me and my phone. Whereas, the Apple Watch does some amazing things with Apple Pay, boarding passes for airplanes, and all the Siri commands that work. I do wish the speaker were louder.
Wozniak was also asked about his opinion on Apple’s battle CA0-001 with the FBI on whether or not the company should unlock the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino gunmen. Wozniak says that, as someone who grew up in “a time when communist Russia under Stalin was thought to be, everybody is spied on, everybody is looked into,” he greatly appreciates personal liberties. He also notes, much like Cook has C4040-121 done, that once Apple creates that tool to access the iPhone in question, it’s out in the open so someone with harmful intentions could get ahold of it:
If you tell somebody, “I am not snooping on you,” or, “I am giving CA1-001 you some level of privacy; I will not look in your drawers,” then you should keep your word and be honest. And I always try to avoid being a snoop myself, and it’s rare in time that we can look back and say, “How should humans be treated?” Not, “How can the police run everything?”
I was brought up in a time when communist CCB-400 Russia under Stalin was thought to be, everybody is spied on, everybody is looked into, every little thing can get you secretly thrown into prison. And, no. We had our Bill of Rights. And it’s just dear to me. The Bill of Rights says some bad people won’t do certain CCA-470 bad things because we’re protecting humans to live as humans.
So, I come from the side of personal hp0-j67 exam preparation guide liberties. But there are also other problems. Twice in my life I wrote things that could have been viruses. I threw away every bit of source code. I just got a chill inside. These are dangerous, dangerous things, and if some code gets written in an Apple product that lets people in, bad people are going to find their way to it, very likely.
