Wozniak: Apple should bring iTunes to Android

Wozniak: Apple should bring iTunes to AndroidIt’s been a while since we featured Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on our hallowed pages. Last we heard, Siri was better before Apple, and Wozzer was quite fond of Windows Phone.

Now the typically outspoken Wozniak is saying he thinks it’d be a good idea for Apple to bring iTunes to Android. Not bloody likely, but an interesting thought.

The story comes from a Q&A session on Slashdot, where readers are invited to ask the big man anything they like. One chap asks: “How do you feel about Apple?”

Steve replies: “Apple's real rise from the small market-share Macintosh company to the iProducts of today began with iTunes and the iPod. This turned out to be a 2nd huge business which roughly doubled Apple's 'size'.

“If you remember, we ported iTunes to Windows. We now addressed 100% of the world's market with this integrated system (iPod/iTunes) and it began the era of Apple that we are now in.

“So why don't we port iTunes to Android? Did something get closed up? I love Apple products and iTunes and wish it were on my Android products too.”

And with regards to all this tedious litigation stuff, Wozniak adds: “I wish that instead of all these lawsuits Apple was sitting down and cross-licensing with the other players.” Yeah, you’re not alone there, Steve.

I would, iTunes (and the iPod Classic [+ older Nano's]) are about the only Apple things I actually like.

iTunes is a pain in the derrière but it's much more compatible with iOS devices and less opportunities of rogue apps getting through.

Android is good but with the potential of rogue apps slipping through and compatibility issues between devices, it can be a pain. (All those permissions are annoying too!)

Gee... about 100 million people or so? Advantage: vids, TV, music all payable by credit card or prepay voucher from the supermarket
