APPLE COFOUNDER Steve Wozniak has slammed Apple's $1bn victory against Samsung, saying he wishes the two companies would just get along.
Last month, Apple won a $1bn victory against Samsung in court, after a jury ruled that the Korean firm infringed a number of patents held by the company. This ruling means that Samsung could be forced to remove many of its devices from US shelves, including the Galaxy S3 smartphone and Galaxy Note tablet.
While Apple applauded the decision, Steve Wozniak has slammed the US jury's verdict saying that he hopes it isn't upheld.
"I hate it," Wozniak said to Bloomberg. "I don't think the decision of California will hold. And I don't agree with it - very small things I don't really call that innovative.
"I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use [with] everybody's technologies."
Making us wonder where his loyalties lie, Woz has also said that he hopes the Iphone 5 camera will be as good as the one on the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is his current smartphone of choice.
"A better quality on the pictures will mean a lot, because when I show people pictures on my Iphone 4 and my Galaxy S III, they always say the Galaxy S III, or even the Motorola Razr, pictures look better."
He will be getting an Iphone 5 though, and likely will queue for the device on launch day in traditional Woz fashion. He added, "I'd like to get a product, use it myself before I judge it and compare to others. I'd like to have it myself and tell what's good and bad about it." µ
