    Sounds like Larry Ellison and Oracle are saying the same thing.



    Good luck in court, Google. The 'doing evil' thing isn't going to pay off for you.

    I don't worship the ground anyone walks on (although I do worship myself). I simply think that insulting a dead person is crass (especially followed by bragging on your oh so awesome parental skillz).

    You're a sick individual. Even those people that had "run-ins" with SJ or those that prefer alternative products recognize what an amazing person and human-being he was. It's despicable that you make claims like this. What an insanely rude, hurtful, and offensive claim you made (that is completely false by the way).



    I will personally work to educate others about Apple's iOS versus Android so that there are fewer people like you around and so that people choose to reward the companies that truly innovate and create something wonderful (as opposed to repackage an idea with a couple new tricks and call it their own=Google's Android).



    When you are on your deathbed, I hope there are things left that you still want to accomplish and are unable to so that you have a moment of reflection and remember what a terrible comment you made here.

    No bragging, simply pointing out that Steve'o is a despicable human being, anyone that dis-owns his own child and makes every attempt to deny paternity is pathetic. Just the fact that you can comment on my parenting "skillz" puts me 5 steps ahead of him, regardless if you approve or not.

IMO. if anything Steve Jobs knew people, thus Tim Cook was the only person that Steve Jobs would trust with the job.



    I'm curious what evidence there is that Tim Cook is the wrong guy for CEO or that Scott Forstall is CEO material. In Walter Isaacson's book Steve was quoted as saying Jony Ive had more operational power and understood Apple at its core better than anyone else. But I think it's well known he has no interest in being CEO. Quite honestly I could see Eddy Cue as CEO before Scott Forstall. In Adam Lashinsky's book "Inside Apple" he said the only Apple executives who attended Steve's burial service were Tim Cook, Jony Ive and Eddy Cue. That leads me to believe those three were the closest to Steve and probably have the most clout at Apple.

    Didn't Larry Tesler work for Apple for most of the 80's?

    Google thought it up it up all on their own. Apple wasn't a factor at all...right?







    Larry Page is a douche, and android sucks balls.

    The rest I can agree with for the most part.



    Thanks island - it was pointed out ... "A year before Apple went to Xerox they started working on a powerful graphics engine (later became known as QuickDraw).

    Learned a little bit more about the Xerox history...

    Yeah, I think Steve Jobs was doing was keep your friends close and your enemies closer to find out what they are doing. I think Android is going to be doomed to failure and it not soley based on my bias towards Apple. It is based on observations.



    Apple has consistency, higher customer satisfaction, customer service, more control over a MUCH better ecosystem, better able to attract and please the Corporate and K-University market, which are VERY important.



    Is there a reason why Mercedes Benz dealerships have switched from Dell/Windows to Apple desktops, iPads, iPhones and create a bunch of free download apps for their products?



    How about 25% or so Cisco employees use Macs/iPhones, etc.?



    How about GE starting to let Apple products for their employees, various banks, Nordsrom, other long term High Profile corporate customers.



    Go to www.google.com and they don't even have a tab that says ANDROID. Google's own website looks like an amateur made it. It is just a joke to me.



    Corporations want to rely on a company that has a COMPLETE solution rather than a fragmented one. I think that Dell and HP, being big Microsoft partners are going to abandon Android altogether once Microsoft releases Windows 8.



    Now, here is an interesting observation. Based on Market Capitalization Apple is worth more than Microsoft, HP, Dell, Sony's Computer Division, Samsung's Computer Division, ASUS, Lenovo, Acer and probably Toshiba's Computer division COMBINED and they have more upward momentum than all of them combined. Google Market Cap has been fairly flat. If things go as they have like the past 2 years, you can throw Google into the group. Nuff said.

    Despite the fact that you are clearly here to provoke and infuriate, I have a question for you regarding Steve's paternity shortcomings:



    Do you have ANY information as to WHY he refused (if he did) to assume paternity of that child? Any at all? Or are you just playing judge and jury? Like the perfect Dad you are?

    Only because they stole the basis for their code from Java instead of Objective-C. Which brings up the other lawsuit...

    Do you think a big corporation is going to do a quality presentation to the CIO that will compete against Apple's story?



    Yeah, the Google rep might tell the CIO in an Executive Briefing - "Well, the top apps sold for our tablets are games, game, social network, games, and oh, we have this Google Doc app which looks like a child created the GUI and we promise we won't give out personal information. And you can have ADs on your internal applications so we can make money since our OS is Open Source." And while the Google rep is being kicked out of the account, he yell back to the CIO, but Sir, WE HAVE ANGRY BIRDS!! And Facebook apps!



    Nuff said.

    Actually, Steve screwed up by allowing Eric $_h_it onto the board of directors without having himself on Google's board of directors during the same time period.
