The great and powerful Woz has spoken. Jeff Engel with the Woz perspective on Samsung’s Galaxy Gear:
That was the only technology I bought to experiment with that I threw out after half a day, sold it on eBay because it was so worthless and did so little that was convenient. You had to hold it up to your ear and stuff.
What does the Woz not want?
I want my smartphone here, but I really want the whole thing. I don’t want just a little Bluetooth connection to the smartphone in my pocket because then it’s just an intermediary, an extra thing I buy to get what I already have and have to carry anyway
What does the Woz actually want?
I look for things that are a little unusual that my friends wouldn’t have. It may not be that useful, just like smartwatches may not be useful enough to get the critical mass they need to really go ahead. But everything I’ve done with Google Glass, I actually kind of liked playing with it.
