Apple Founder Steve Wozniak Calls For Open iPhone

Apple Founder Calls For Open iPhone
In a recent interview with Laptop Magazine, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak joins the legions clamoring for a more open policy regarding the iPhone. "I'm really for the unlockers, the rebels trying to make it free," Woz declares, throwing down the gauntlet with the camp opposing his old buddy and Apple evangelist Steve Jobs. Woz complains about how Apple is treating the iPhone less as as though it were a computing platform (which it is) and more as though it were an appliance.

He even complains about the just-released Leopard and other operating systems, which Woz says are little more than gradual improvements and not the march towards brain dead user interfaces that even the least computer literate could use.

Why does Woz care, anyway -- he's got a new book out and is on his way to ending up on a reality show if he does indeed end up marrying Kathy Griffin (assuming those rumors are true).
