Steve Jobs Vs Google

Steve Jobs. The name draws out very different emotions from  a wide range of people. Some see Jobs as an all knowing deity, who is made of golden ideas and innovation. Others view him as a communist controlling dictator who runs Apple with an iRon (get it?) fist, while at the same time distorting facts to downplay his competition.

No matter what you think of Jobs, you will find it interesting (and perhaps infuriating) that he apparently attacked Google in a town hall meeting with Apple employees.

Apparently someone brought up Google and Jobs said “We did not enter the search business. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake: they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them.”

And then, apparently, he went off. Like an iBomb (ok last one).

According to Wired.com, an Apple employee tried to move on to another question, but apparently Google being brought up had struck a nerve. “I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing,” he said. “This ‘Don’t be evil’ mantra: It’s bullshit.” Woah. Steve. Really?

In this industry there is a certain way to go about proving your the best. With data, numbers, reviews, and customer satisfaction. So why did Jobs decide to call Google’s mantra bullshit? Certainly not because he has seen last weeks data. Definitely not because he is worried that Google is actually slowly but surely succeeding in killing the iPhone. Absolutely not because of the horrible launch the iPhone 4 has seen. And, I can promise you it has nothing to do with how well the Droid X has been reviewed. No. I am sure Steve just said what he said because…….ok I have nothing.

So Google has Apple running scared. Or at least angry. And for that they should be applauded.

    Until I got to the points about recent Android phones/events, I actually thought that this was an old article that somehow got reposted. “Wow” is all I have to say…

    I know this is old, but with everything that has been happening I felt it was a good item to talk about. I was trying to say that jobs may have some of the news i listed above before we did, thus his anger. sorry if i offended anyone
