Jobs Talks About Google - It's Not Good
Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder and CEO, held a meeting with staff to answer questions.
Wired reported on what was said:
On Google: We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won't let them, he says. Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there's no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don't be evil mantra: "It's bullshit." Audience roars.
Was it worth it for Google to enter the phone business? It's not a phone company and it has managed to piss-off all the phone companies not just Apple. For what?
Mr Jobs wasn't very nice about Adobe:
They are lazy, Jobs says. They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it. They don't do anything with the approaches that Apple is taking, like Carbon. Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy, he says. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it's because of Flash. No one will be using Flash, he says. The world is moving to HTML5.
