Steve Wozniak predicts death of the iPod

Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, has spoken about the "death" of the iPod in an interview with the Telegraph.

"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", Wozniak said.

"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."

He also criticised Apple for its closed developer culture, comparing it to Google's more open Android OS:

"Consumers aren't getting all they want when companies are very proprietary and lock their products down. I would like to write some more powerful apps than what you're allowed."

The last snippet from "Woz" comes in the form of a future iProduct, with the Telegraph reporting, but not elaborating on: "he let slip that Apple's future could lie in an 'iWatch'".
