Steve Wozniak is one of those guys that most of us just like, regardless of what platform we use or how we feel about Apple. Not only is he one of the founding fathers of the personal computer revolution, he tells things how it is and isn’t afraid to be honest, regardless of his affiliation with Apple. When speaking at TEDx Brussels, TechCrunch got a few moments afterwards with WoZ.

The short interview talks about the cloud and how he feels about it. It also talks about what Steve Wozniak might have done differently if he could go back to the early days of Apple. He seems to say he has no regrets for how and why he did things when developing the early Apple PC.

While Steve is still a big Apple fan, TechCrunch asked a good question: Does he think Microsoft has become more innovative than Apple in recent years? His answer was interesting. Basically he applauds Microsoft for going in a new direction with Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. He also mentions the “universal translator”-like device by Microsoft Research that he says looks very innovative.

Basically, he says that Microsoft was thinking to the future by trying something new, while Apple has been simply cranking out new versions of the iPhone and other existing iDevices. Like WoZ says, there is a big difference between “improving” a product and creating innovative ones.

Anyhow, check out the video interview, it’s worth the watch:

What do you think of what Woznaik had to say? Agree, disagree?

    Basically, Apple don’t have time to innovate. They spend all their time suing better companies like Microsoft and Google as well as small companies who don’t have the money. They also spend their time making overpriced and awkward devices and making map software that just fails. Android and Windows are awesome, Firefox OS looks good, and BlackBerry are making a comeback. If it weren’t for the fanboys, Apple would be ruined. If only Steve Wozniak was in charge of Apple, not the idiot known as Tim Cook. They have to learn that they are not cool anymore, just an unpopular, faceless corporation that has no fun. That is why the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 sold out within hours all over the world.
