The new iPad Air may be thinner, lighter and faster, but for Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, that doesn’t mean it’s better for him.
"Not every Apple product makes a big enough difference to me to get instantly, although many do," Wozniak explained in an email to The Huffington Post. "For example, I also did not get the iPad Retina when it was introduced."
Wozniak, who left Apple back in 1987, explained that he was hoping for an iPad with 256 GB of memory to store TV shows and movies on the go. The new iPad Air and iPad Mini, both introduced by Apple on Tuesday, come with at most 128 GB of storage.
"I was hoping for more storage so I could put every episode of 'Big Bang Theory' on my iPad," he said on stage in London. Wozniak admitted that part of the problem is that he doesn't have broadband at home so prefers to keep his media saved on a hard drive.
Wozniak told HuffPost that while he eventually planned on upgrading his iPad, he is "not getting one right away." He also said that he was indeed buying one new Apple product.
"I immediately ordered the new MacBook Pro, which is more central to my own computer life," Wozniak said.
Wozniak has a history of critiquing the company he helped launch with Steve Jobs 37 years ago. In the past, he has pooh-poohed Siri and complained about the battery life of the iPhone 4S.
"Although I receive a small salary from Apple, I do virtually no real work at the company," Wozniak disclosed in a 2010 interview.
