Steve Wozniak has never been shy about needling his former company, even if it means praising the efforts of Apple’s (AAPL) longtime nemesis Microsoft (MSFT). And in an interview with TechCrunch’s Andrew Keen, Wozniak is at it again and is expressing concerns that Microsoft may now be out-innovating the company he co-founded. Specifically, Wozniak said that Microsoft has produced “more of the type of innovation where you see something and you say, ‘Whoa, they really changed things drastically, whoa, they aren’t really even going in the same direction as everyone else.'” Wozniak also worried that Microsoft may have spent the past three years coming up with bold new innovations while Apple “was just used to cranking out the newest iPhone and falling a little behind.”
