Imagine a world were Apple and Google are partners. No, you have not stepped into the Twilight Zone, but have instead caught a glimpse inside of Steve Wozniak’s mind.
The Apple co-founder told the BBC that “I wish to God that Apple and Google were partners in the future.” Wozniak likes how Google’s search engine fuels Android speech recognition, especially when compared to Apple’s Siri. “Sometimes I say ‘Go to Joe’s Diner’ and [Siri] doesn’t know where Joe’s Diner is. And very often usually I find out that Android does.” So he basically wants this partnership because it would make his life easier. We can all get behind that. However, in business, it isn’t just about what the consumer wants.
Wozniak believes that an Apple/Google partnership could produce improvements in wearable tech, like smartwatches or AR glasses too. We can see that. “For about three or four years I’ve been talking about organic LED displays that could be theoretically printed on plastic, wrapped and folded. It could be on the inside of your arm and then when you flip your arm up it could actually flip open into your own hand. I want a full smartphone-like capability on my wrist. The trouble is the more I think about it, I don’t want the small size.”
Well, that is his two cents and frankly we would all love it, but sadly it will probably never happen. Competition is a pretty good innovator at any rate.
