Billionaire Steve Wozniak dislikes new iPad Air, doesn’t have broadband internet at homeOctober 25, 2013 3 Email article | Print article
Steve Wozniak dislikes the direction Apple has taken with the iPad Air, and has issues with the iPad Mini. The co-founder of Apple’s main issue with the iPad Air is that it doesn’t have as much storage space as he would have liked.
“Yes it’s thinner, but I wanted storage. I don’t have broadband at home, and you can’t get great broadband connection in hotels, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 258GB iPad,” Wozniak said. “I was hoping for more storage so I could put every episode of Big Band Theory on my iPad. So I emailed my wife and said ‘nope, I don’t want one of those.”
Apple this year had already unveiled an iPad that has 128GB, and the same is true for the iPad Air as well as the iPad Mini. Wozniak also has problems with the iPad Mini, which is 7.9 inches, which for Wozniak is still just a bit too big.
While his problems with the iPad Mini over size seem somewhat ridiculous, as far as his qualms about storage space, Macworld believes that they are also somewhat unreasonable. “We think a 256Gb version of the iPad might be a little bit much, at least for now. Most people won’t need more than the 128GB available, they’re using it like a laptop and carrying around their entire music, photo and video collections,” they said.
While gripping about the iPad Mini, Wozniak revealed he does not have broadband internet at his home. “I don’t have broadband at home because of my phone company, but that is life., and you can’t get great broadband connection in hotels,” he said.
What do you think? Is Steve Wozniak being unrealistic in wanting an iPad that has more storage space? And why the hell does a billionaire techie live in an area where he can’t get broadband access? Let us know in the comments.
