Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Disagrees with Apple's Patent Victory Over Samsung

Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple and inventor of the Apple I and Apple II, has never been one to bite his tongue, and he certainly didn't when asked what he thought about the patent dispute between Apple and Samsung. In three words, "I hate it," Wozniak explains, and he also doesn't agree with Apple's $1 billion victory over Samsung.

"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," Wozniak told Bloomberg in an interview.

Apple sued Samsung for allegedly ripping off the look and feel of iPhone and iPad devices in creating its Galaxy line, with mixed results around the world. Here in the U.S., a jury ultimately decided in Apple's favor, awarding the company over a billion dollars in damages. Samsung is expected to appeal, but in the meantime, the same battle wages on in overseas courts.

"I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody's technologies," Wozniak added.
