“In a striking report on Thursday, the Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper reported Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple Computer, had some major differences in vision with Apple CEO and co-founder Steve Jobs. According to the piece written by Peter Nowak, Wozniak asserted that Apple ought to spin off its iPod division and was hesitant in his support of the Cupertino-based company’s switch to Intel processors,” Timothy R. Butler reports for Open for Business. “Wozniak responded in a statement posted today to TheMacintoshGuy.com’s Titanium user list.

I did NOT say that the iPod division should be spun off and I feel used in that regard.’”
