Steve Wozniak thinks of current Apple

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple and one of the greatest innovator, was dead. But the other Steve is still alive.

Steve Wozniak is a co-founder of Apple. He is also a talented engineer. If he had not been cooperative to Jobs, Apple would have not existed. He left Apple in 1985 because the target of the company was shifted from Apple II to Macintosh.

Nonetheless, Wozniak seems to have been gazing at the Apple. And the media is also willing to take his comments occasionally. Recently, Wozniak criticized iWatch as it lacks innovative ideas.

On the other hand, Wozniak approves recent effort of Tim Cook. He is also supportive of the Apple's attitude against FBI's demand to disclose the privacy of iPhone users.

After quitting Apple, Wozniak has been engaged in education so that elementary school children would acquire the knowledge of computer science.

You may wonder why such a genius man is involved in the region of basic education. Especially in Japan, the activity of education is not adequately admired. But, it can be deemed a crucial contribution in the US, as Obama emphasized the importance of computer programming even for adolescents.

On the other hand, I think there is limited opportunity for a person to make a change in the world. The ability of imagination is declining as aging. It is hard to create new values continuously even for Steve Jobs. Perhaps, Wozniak is aware of this fact.

Of course, it may be my pity image. Wozniak is a trick lover. I expect he will surprise us some day.
