Hi. I'm Rick. I write, advise, and invest.
Currently consulting at Tumblr.
For everyone looking for a good map application that actually knows where Bloomberg is (or, my perennial annoyance, General Assembly, which Google Maps still can’t find), might I recommend Foursquare? It’s pretty much the best map system if you’re trying to find a building, office, landmark or venue.
Android phones aren’t as simple to use as the iPhone, but they’re not that much more complicated, and “if you’re willing to do the work to understand it a little bit, well I hate to say it, but there’s more available in some ways.
Woz often diverged from Jobs. He wanted Macs to be easily upgradable, Jobs didn’t. Same reason he likes Android.
One of the things that drove Jobs nuts was how he thought Google stabbed him in the back with Android, he felt they stole a lot of the iPhone technology from him and would not get into the smartphone business, even at just the OS level. This comment from Woz would have likely set him off if he were still around today because of the anger he carried around with him about Google.
It’s also worth pointing out that to the vast majority of people out there, the notion that they have to “work” at their phone is fairly objectionable. Some people like to tinker on cars. Most want a car that “just works.”
