Why Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Won’t Buy The iPad Air
There are plenty of reasons why Apple’s own co-founder wouldn’t want the iPad Air. Well, actually, there aren’t. After all, he’s the cofounder of the company. But it wasn’t because the design wasn’t up to par, or because it was too heavy, or even because he probably has as many iPads as he could ever need, but because it doesn’t have enough storage to fit every episode of “Big Bang Theory” on it.
I am constantly following the gadget world but I was on a plane and missed all of the keynote,” Wozniak told MacWorld. “When I finally took a look at the devices, the iPads didn’t hit my needs. Yes it’s thinner, but I wanted storage… I was hoping for more storage so I could put every episode of Big Bang Theory on my iPad. So I emailed my wife and said ‘nope, I don’t want one of those.”
So now we know that Woz is a “Big Bang Theory” fan—and that the show is a huge factor in whether or not he will purchase the iPad Air, which has up to 128GB of space, compared to the 256GB that he’d preferred.
I don’t have broadband at home, and you can’t get great broadband connection in hotels, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad,” Wozniak explained.
You might be wondering how a techie genius doesn’t have broadband at home. He blames his “lousy phone company,” but that still doesn’t seem like a good enough reason, because it’s fairly easy to change phone companies. But we’re not one to judge.
The iPad Air is being touted as being faster than previous iPad models, with the added bonus of being much more light—and for the same price. According to several reviews, the retina is still as amazingly clear and sharp as ever. Graphics remain generally the same. In the end, not much aside from the weight and speed has been changed.
