Steve Wozniak isn’t interested in picking up the new iPad Air.
To be clear, it’s not that the Apple co-founder is unhappy with Apple’s design, or some new feature with iOS 7. The storage, he says, is just not big enough for him — since he wants to put his entire media library on it.
“Yes it’s thinner but I wanted storage. I don’t have broadband at home, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 256GB iPad,” Wozniak told an audience at the Apps World conference in London, according to a report by Techradar.
It turns out that Woz lives in an area that doesn’t have broadband access, and it’s just not fast enough for him to download a movie from iTunes when he wants to watch it.
“I could wait for it but I get bored by then,” Wozniak said.
