Wozniak comments on Microsoft

Posted by Kim Peterson at 9:20 AM

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak tells the Globe and Mail that if Microsoft develops an MP3 player, it had better be gooood.

"If they do it, they better do it excellent, excellent, excellent because the iPod sure is," Wozniak said, according to the Globe and Mail. "Doing something weaker and somehow trying to use your size and market power . . . that's just not good [enough] if you don't turn out something superior."

Wozniak also speculated that innovation *might* be going on at the company.

"Microsoft wants to get out of the whole image of the big, black Darth Vader evil guy," he said. "Innovation is probably going on within the company, because any time you put smart engineers in places eventually they wind up talking and innovating no matter how much you try to hold them back.

"I hope Microsoft improves and becomes more like Apple."
