苹果公司的共同创始人Steve Wozniak报怨苹果的产品策略,相信iPod正退出市场,并表达了他对iPhone某些方面的不满
Wozniak 说,iPod成为世界最受欢迎的媒体播放器的时间已经够长了,由于供过于求它将走向衰落。Wozniak还评价了iPhone的私有属性和锁定的服务供应商,且与Google开放的Android平台进行对比。“当公司占有性过强,限制产品的使用,消费者得到的不是所想要的,”他说,“我愿意写一些比你允许的更强大的应用程序。”
在广泛领域,Wozniak看到日益恶化的经济形势对技术市场产生的不利影响。他提醒道,用户会延长更换其IT设施的周期,这将损害硬件和软件产业。
Wozniak还警告说,许多Web 2.0公司正在高估,这可能导致第二次技术坠毁。
 
Wozniak also commented on the iPhone's proprietary nature and locked service provider, and compared it to Google's open Android platform.
"Consumers are not getting all they want when companies are very proprietary and lock their products down," he said. "I would like to write some more powerful apps than what you're allowed."
On the broader front Wozniak said that he could see the technology market being hurt by the worsening economic situation.
He suggested that companies would extend their IT equipment's replacement time and that this would hurt the hardware and software industries.
Wozniak also warned that many Web 2.0 companies are being overvalued and that this could lead to a second technology crash.
 
听起来有象中国人说的“满招损,谦受益”的味道。
 
昨天看到一篇好文《三个把自己玩死的公司》,讲美国次贷危机原委的,不就象追尾巴的狗吗?其实兽医说那是先天性的脑垂体残缺,最好的方法是幼时断尾,不然它会一直追尾到累倒昏迷,醒了继续追,直到力竭而亡。
 
去年谁忽悠长尾理论的?剁了还长,壁虎吗?
