We already know Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak uses both iOS and Android devices, but this week we learned that the former evangelist who helped create the original "cult of Mac" has left iOS behind and gone all Android.

It's been decades since Guy Kawasaki preached the gospel of Apple in the '80s, but only about a year since he jumped ship as an iPhone owner for an Android phone with 4G LTE -- the Droid Razr Maxx . Kawasaki was quoted in ReadWrite saying he no longer uses any Apple mobile products:

"I fell in love with Android on the smartphone, and then I got a Nexus 7 and started using Android on the tablet as well... To me the great irony is that Apple's slogan was 'Think Different,' but today if you think different you're looking at Android."

Kawasaki says he sees no reason to switch back to iOS now that the iPhone 5 has LTE and the iPad Mini offers a similar form factor to the Nexus 7.

Today he says he uses a Samsung Galaxy S3 and loves the fact that he can use the same cable interchangeably between his Nexus 7 and GS3.

"What a concept! A standard cable," Kawasaki said.

Ouch. That's got to smart, Apple. With so much changing teams going on, someone better call Stephen Sinofsky to see if he's now become a Linux guy.
