With all of the articles talking about life after the PC we were surprised to hear that Foxconn is looking at life after Apple. Apple is an interesting company with a rocky history their two founder Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak were both very talented at what they did and that combination managed to help the fledgling consumer PC market take off. However it was not that long before both of the founders were no longer with the company and it was being run by a business man instead of anyone with vision or personality. That business man tried to embark on a legal campaign to kill off rival Microsoft with not only failed, but also came close to bankrupting Apple.

Wozniak reluctant to use the Cloud

cloud

From the very beginning it was certain that the main concern about Cloud computing would be security. No one can feel comfortable about placing his private data in remote storage, no matter how high of a security level is promised by the service provider. This weekend we could see security issues coming into the spotlight as Gizmodo's twitter feed god hacked, after one of their former writers, Mat Honan, had his Cloud penetrated by a group calling themselves Clan W3. They sent racist and offensive tweets to around 415,000 followers, luckily Gizmodo managed to quickly regain control of it's account.

It seems that he feels Apple messed up the service when they purchased it and tried to make it their own. In an interview Wozniak is actually quoted as saying “A lot of people say Siri. I say poo-poo”
