He didn't explicitly lie but he said to ask Apple about the approval. Why would he say that unless Google submitted it already? Why would Apple know about any unsubmitted app?

He said that they would need to discuss it with Apple. Since Apple didn't have the app since Google hadn't submitted it what exactly was there to discuss with Apple? Your argument that "Schmidt never said the exact words we submitted to Apple and they haven't approved it" are just as duplicitous and smarmy as Schmidt's

In essence it is absolutely lying, he chose his words extremely carefully, but his intention was to make people believe something that is completely false, and direct blame to another party who bears absolutely no responsibility. If you can't see that, I don't know what to say.  

 

It's like asking me how I did on my assignment, then I respond by "I don't know, ask the prof", when I haven't even done or submitted the assignment at all.

He didn't say that either. He is just mentioning that Apple will be a key component in bringing "Google Now" to iOS.

- they don't have one because they don't have an app so he is wrong.  They would need to ask Google.  

Schmidt could have been much more accurate by saying "I don't have a precise answer since one is still in development (which I assume one is).  We also don't know how long Apple's App approval process will take so there is that."

He could have said million different answers. But what he didn't say is that they have already submitted the app.

He could have been far more accurate and made the same app store dig he was trying to make.  By just mentioning Apple they imply that Apple has information they do not.  Google knows this which makes them dishonest.  They lied.

They didn't.

It is a general reply. The "when it will be available" depends on "if apple will approve".

You'll have to ask Apple
is a general statement, not that today you have to check with apple. If you see the video is a more informal interview (where he lauded Apple for its technological innovation and said he has both an iPad and iPad mini). It is the article here (and other places) that added the "app already submitted" statement based on their own comprehension.

Exactly.

Student 1: When will you finish your masters?
Student 2: You'll have to ask my prof. He approves some and doesn't approve some others.
Student 1: Have you submitted your thesis?
Student 2: Not yet.

I don't see any lying in the second sentence. Remember Schmidt didn't say "Ask Apple", he said "You'll have to ask Apple".

Because he didn't say "Ask Apple", instead "You'll have to ask Apple". It is a general statement implying the app coming out in iOS depends on Apple's approval.

Nonsense.

 

Interviewer: Will there be an iOS version of Google Now?

Schmidt: You'll have to ask Apple.

*goes*

I: Will there be an iOS version of Google Now?

Apple: No.

I: Why?

A: Google hasn't submitted it. There won't be one unless they submit it.

*comes back*

I: They said no.

S: Okay, we won't submit it then.

The distinction is so subtle that it isn't even there in the first place.

I would expect someone with Google to stretch the truth to make their product look good, but when they spout out-and-out lies, they can be accurately labelled as liars. (In addition to his label as an industrial spy.)

Well, if you submit it like that...
