Steve Wozniak says he doesn't agree with the verdict a California jury found in favor of Apple during its patent infringement trial with Samsung, according to a Bloomberg report.

"I hate it," Wozniak said when asked about the battle between the companies. "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.

"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."

When asked about what his thoughts on the new iPhone 5, Wozniak said, "I am always excited about every iPhone product because there are always good advances.

"A better quality on the pictures will mean a lot, because when I show people pictures on my iPhone 4 and my Galaxy S III, they always say the Galaxy S III, or even the Motorola Razr, pictures look better."

"I think they took some very important steps. I'd like to get a product, use it myself before I judge it and compare to others. I'd like to have it myself and tell what's good and bad about it."

Love you Woz, but your statement is disappointing and downright strange. Dozens of companies copy Apple, right down to the way products are PACKAGED, including even the way in which the plastic comes off. THAT's RIGHT. That's shameful and LAME and why shouldn't Apple try to defend itself. The jury has spoken. The verdict will hold. No Supreme Court will deny the irrefutable facts in this case.

We love you WOZ!

Yep, Steve Jobs stole all Apple's good ideas. Fuck Apple.

You guys are such losers! If it wasn't for guys like Woz, we wouldn't have ANY high tech devices.

Russelll, with all due respect, if we continue to let Samsung stealing Apple's idea, they will rip off Apple and we will then no longer have these high tech gadgets anymore. Pls rethink again.

How can you come to the conclusion that Woz does not believe in patent laws? In the article there was only 1 sentence where he expressed displeasure with the Apple vs Samsung verdict, "I don’t agree with it -- very small things I don’t really call that innovative." He felt apple's patents were not that innovative or technologically substantial to deserve protection.

...because he said he'd like it if they all just gave up on patents, give access to each other, let anyone build anything they want. Did you miss that bit?

Not quite, you are twisting his words. He said he wishes everybody would exchange patents. He did not say abolish patent laws. "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."
