Android Does What iPhone Won’t? Steve Wozniak Says Siri…

Steve Wozniak, also known as “The Woz” was on an interview at the Daily Beast in which a discussion around the comparison of Apple’s iPhone with the Android OS based phones. “My primary phone is the iPhone,” Steve Wozniak said. “I love the beauty of it. But I wish it did all the things my Android does, I really do.”

Seems he didn’t like how well Siri, the new voice of the iPhone 4S, is working at the moment either. “I used to ask Siri, ‘What are the five biggest lakes in California?’ and it would come back with the answer,” Steve said. “Now it just misses. It gives me real estate listings. I used to ask, ‘What are the prime numbers greater than 87?’ and it would answer. Now instead of getting prime numbers, I get listings for prime rib, or prime real estate.”



Interesting, however it should come as no surprise that Steve Wozniak still recommends the iPhone 4S – “The people I recommend the iPhone 4S for are the ones who are already in the Mac world, because it’s so compatible, and people who are just scared of computers altogether and don’t want to use them. The iPhone is the least frightening thing. For that kind of person who is scared of complexity, well, here’s a phone that is simple to use and does what you need it to do,” he said. Yes, interesting indeed.
