Steve Wozniak to Apple: Make a 256GB iPad Air
Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) latest flagship iPad failed to impress Steve Wozniak, one of the original co-founders of Apple. “Woz,” as he is affectionately known by Apple fans, recently offered his frank assessment of Apple’s iPad Air at the Apps World tech conference in London, reports Macworld.
“Yes it’s thinner, but I wanted storage. I don’t have broadband at home, and you can’t get great broadband connection in hotels, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 256GB iPad,” said Wozniak. “I was hoping for more storage so I could put every episode of Big Bang Theory on my iPad. So I emailed my wife and said, ‘Nope, I don’t want one of those.’”
It should be noted that Wozniak’s need for more memory is largely due to his unfortunate lack of broadband. “I can’t order a movie from iTunes and watch it straight away,” said Wozniak via TechRadar. “I could wait for it but I get bored by then. It’s because of my lousy phone company, but that is life.”
Apple’s iPad Air is currently only available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. Rather than expanding the memory capacity, Apple’s latest iPad refresh focused on the inclusion of a 64-bit A7 processor and a thinner and lighter design.
