Speaking at an Entel summit in Chile, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke of how impressed he was with the Microsoft Surface, even going as far as saying that it was like something Steve Jobs would have designed, iDownloadBlog reports.
Microsoft’s latest products have such a strikingly good visual appearance which is a lot of what Steve Jobs always looked for, the art and technology; the convergence of art and technology. And usually It was visual appearance of things. So I made a joke that Steve Jobs came back reincarnated at Microsoft.
I’m glad that Microsoft is starting to show maybe they’re a different company than before, I don’t remember this sort of thing happening in a long, long time with Microsoft, so I’m very happy.
I do want to see the Surface. I want to own one, I want use one but I prefer to judge things I really know and not just what I’ve read about.
In the video, Woz also speaks out about the MegaUpload scandal and Google’s Project Glass, but it’s definitely interesting see Woz’s engineer side emerge and that he is open to using a product from a rival of his former company. For the segment on Microsoft Surface, skip to 2:20.
