Although ever part of Apple, Steve Wozniak apparently did not think the company can bring a new breakthrough in the field of technology. Instead he chose Tesla as the company that will bring technological changes in the future.
The statement was expressed during an interview conducted by Wozniak with Bloomberg Canada. In the interview, Woz – Wozniak familiar call – explains, Tesla breakthrough is also not separated from Elon Musk figure behind him.
“They (Tesla) make many breakthroughs, including for things that are risky,” he said as quoted by CNET, Monday (29/05/2017).
These efforts are shown Musk by developing electric cars, autonomos cars, including a more efficient transportation system.
One of Tesla’s successes can be seen from the presence of the Tesla Model S. According to Wozniak, the car may technically be difficult to develop, but Tesla in fact has succeeded in developing and selling it in accordance with market desires.
“The product is developed from Elon Musk’s life, what kind of car he likes and what comes from yourself, including everything he likes and the ability to control it, that’s when you are able to produce the best product,” he said.
However, it does not mean that Apple is not included in the list of companies that successfully bring a breakthrough in the field of technology.
Together with Google, Facebook and Microsoft, Wozniak also calls Apple a company that has changed the world. But with the current scale, it is very difficult to develop new things that are quite risky.
To note, this is not the first time Wozniak threw a pessimistic statement about Apple. Previously, he never commented on the issue about the iPhone 7 is called present without 3.5mm audio jack.
Not only that, he also had commented about the presence of Apple Watch is perceived as a mistake Tim Cook as CEO of Apple. He reasoned, the device is no longer viewed as a technology device, but luxury jewelry that is sold at very high prices.
