Steve Wozniak Says Apple loses its Cool

Apple feels the pressure this year on the stock market and also from consumers. Where is the next big thing? That is the question that is in the room for Apple. Is it the rumored iWatch? Even Apple co-founder Wozniak is chiming in the criticism. In an interview with Bloomberg he said:

"We used to have these ads, I’m a Mac and I’m a PC, and the Mac was always the cool guy,” he said. “And ouch, it’s painful, because we kind of are losing that."

Funny enough. Microsoft founder Bill Gates said something similar this week about Microsoft. Bill Gates is not satisfied that in terms of breakthrough things Microsoft is not doing everything possible."

So two founders are not happy with the innovation power of the companies the created decades ago.
