Even though many people still relate Apple's early success to Steve Wozniak, the tables have turned and it has been uncovered that he prefers Android to iOS now. If you remember Woz landed a Samsung Galaxy Nexus a bit early but he actually prefers his Motorola Droid Razr over the Galaxy Nexus.
“if you’re willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there’s more available in some ways…"
This statement is huge, Woz understands that there is so much untapped potential from the OEM's and that the development community can do some wonderful things. Sure on iOS you can jailbreak and change some things, but who wants to wait months for the jailbreak to come out when you can wait a few days and any major Android device is rooted.
In addition Woz says that Apple's flagship new feature, Siri, has become far less useful since being purchased by Apple, and that he would much rather use the Android speech recognition. While he still recommends Apple products strongly for purchase it is great to see his love for Android surface.
