Apple 的共同创始人 Steve Wozniak 一直都是个有趣的话题人物,每次苹果的活动他都冲在第一线。还时不时的搞件 “I WENT DRINKING WITH GRAY POWELL AND ALL I GOT WAS A LOUSY IPHONE PROTOTYPE”T 恤。

不过作为 Apple 创始人的他也是出了名的苹果粉丝,所以今天 Engadget 一篇 Woz 说 Android 将会成为手机市场霸主的文章让人觉得有点吃惊,也引发了大量的点击。

事情起源于一家荷兰报纸 De Telegraaf 对 Woz 的采访,这家荷兰报纸在采访文章中写道 Woz 说 Android——而非 iPhone,将会成为手机领域的霸主。文中说 Woz 认为 Google 的系统将会像 Windows 统治 PC 一样统治手机市场;他同时说 iPhone 几乎没有缺点,没有真正值得抱怨的问题,在质量方面 iPhone 是领先的,但是他说 Android 手机的功能更多,给用户更多选择。他认为 Android 最终将在质量、稳定性和用户满意度上追赶上 iOS。

这篇文章迅速引发了十分热烈的讨论,很多 Android 的支持者称赞 Woz 是个聪明人,很诚实。能够听到苹果的创始人说 Android 将会战胜 iOS 当然是件不同寻常的事情。Engadget 也迅速与 Woz 联系上寻求证实,结果 Woz 说这家荷兰媒体错误的引用了他的意思

他回复说:

Rather off the mark. The reporter took notes by hand. I barely commented that I expect Android to have a greater market share, only from what I have read. I then elaborated on how it was similar to Microsoft with PC’s and how much junk came from it and I praised the iOS platform as the best and nearly ideal one. I did not say that Android has more features, only that it has some features that the iPhone doesn’t have, like being able to speak “Navigate to Joe’s Diner”, but I pointed out things I can speak into my iPhone that I can’t yet into my Droid X. So don’t believe the headlines.
As for an Apple phone, I probably said something like “suppose that Apple had…etc.” to illustrate that Apple only releases products when they are incredible enough.
I don’t read dutch but I hope most of the long interview came through well. I kept giving the reporter time to write things. I have complemented features of Android phones but never have said that they are better than iPhones, to anyone, so don’t misread that.

结果证实 Woz 只是说 Android 手机的语音导航只需要说一句 “Navigate to Joe’s Diner” 就行了,而苹果需要收购 Siri 或者 Poly9 才能实现这一功能。他说他从来没说过 “Android 比 iOS 更好” 或者 “我装的每一个软件都比 iPhone 上的好”。他说他确实提到 “基于他的了解” Android 可能更流行,Woz 说 “Android 与 Windows 很类似……不是要贬低 Android,我认为怎么想也没办法说它比 iOS 更好。Android 就算依然糟糕,也能够取得较大市场份额”。

当然想更好的了解来龙去脉,不妨看看 Woz 在 Engadget 回复了些什么,听听他就这件乌龙事件跟 Engadget 说了些什么。
