Steve Wozniak appears to bash his former company more often than not. The Apple (AAPL) co-founder has previously claimed that Microsoft was out-innovating Apple, that Android had leapt ahead of iOS, and most recently that the iPhone has fallen behind the competition. In an interview with German magazine Wirtschafts Woche, Wozniak said that Apple has fallen “somewhat behind with features in the smartphone business.” He noted that other companies, mainly Samsung (005930), have caught up and that is because they are “currently making great products.” Wozniak, who frequently waits in line in anticipation of new Apple products, went on to explain his affection for Apple and said that “one thing is certain… if Apple made lousy products, I would not be in line.”
