Mr. Wozniak took the stage at the Q & A session of 'Future Transport Summit 2016' held in Sydney. He said most of Apple's success was due to the fact that 'Jobs wasn't an engineer.'

It was said that it was in the interest of Apple that it was required to be concise to make it a human-centered design because it lacked.

In contrast to Jobs, Mr. Wozniak has always dreamed of 'having his own PC' since he was a kid, and he was a true engineer who assembled his own PC. The difference between the two personalities is in the movie ' Steve Jobs ', but due to the engineer's temperament as mentioned above, Mr. Wozniak who thinks that the computer should be an open system that can be freely exchanged parts and modified by the user, and the user Was drawn in the form of Jobs, which does not allow any hardware modifications. As a result, Apple was able to pursue the shape that Jobs wanted and create the iMac, perhaps because of the feeling and perspective that Jobs had because he was not an engineer.
