Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is excited about Microsoft.
Yes, even more excited than when he happened to wonder
whether Microsoft had re-incarnated Steve Jobs in order to create its new Windows Phones.
I am grateful to Cult of Mac
for spotting footage of the Entel Summit in Chile in which Woz waxed lyrical about recent developments in Redmond.
"I do see a lot of stuff coming out from Microsoft in the consumer arena. A lot of people like to say that Microsoft's had no successes in the last so many years, but the Xbox
is a success, and certainly Kinect."
He's certainly right. And he's certainly enthusiastic about Microsoft's phone output.
"They have such a striking visual appearance, which is a lot of what Steve Jobs was always looking for -- the art and technology, the convergence of art and technology," he said.
