Steve Wozniak is sure the iPod will die soon

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, despite his company moving millions of the things, is sure that the iPod will be dying soon, as consumers move on to some other technological fad.


“The iPod has sort of lived a long life at number one. Things like, that if you look back to transistor radios and Walkmans, they kind of die out after a while. It's kind of like everyone has got one or two or three. You get to a point when they are on display everywhere, they get real cheap and they are not selling as much,” Wozniak said.


Wozniak also asserts that the reason why they keep changing things up with every generation is that it keeps things fresh. But I can’t see the iPod going away yet, especially since they’re still the hottest item on the block. The other products Wozniak mentioned (the Walkman, the transistor radio) were replaced when something better came along and due to their own deficiencies. I can’t really figure what will make the iPod seem like a piece of crap, but then again, when the Walkman first came out, it seemed pretty awesome too. [Daily Telegraph via Gizmodo]

Gotta love that picture! Wozniak's lack of eyes symbolizes how he can't see the future clearly.

Swapped the pics to one from Wikipedia that doesn't cut the top of his head off.
