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.
