Google CEO - "Steve Jobs Anger Over Android Was Actually For Show"

Larry Page Shares His Experiences With Apple CEO Steve Jobs

Larry page's interview at bloomberg steve jobs anger against android

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Google CEO Larry Page shared his moments with Steve Jobs and spoke about Steve Jobs rivalry with Android. Here is what the interview was all about

According to the Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, when you became CEO you went to Jobs for advice. I know you had your differences at the end around Android, but what did you take from him as a mentor and a friend?

I think the Android differences were actually for show. I had a relationship with Steve. I wouldn't say I spent a lot of time with him over the years, but I saw him periodically. Curiously enough, actually, he requested that meeting. He sent me an e-mail and said: "Hey, you want to get together and chat?" I said, "Sure, I'll come over." And we had a very nice talk. We always did when we had a discussion generally.

He was quite sick. I took it as an honor that he wanted to spend some time with me. I figured he wanted to spend time with his family at that point. He had a lot of interesting insights about how to run a company and that was pretty much what we discussed.

Wait, the fury around Android was for show?

I think that served their interests. For a lot of companies, it’s useful for them to feel like they have an obvious competitor and to rally around that. I personally believe that it’s better to shoot higher. You don’t want to be looking at your competitors. You want to be looking at what’s possible and how to make the world better.

However, what Larry Page said doesn't reflect any similarity with what Steve Jobs said earlier. Steve said in an expletive tone to Walter Isaacson that Android is a stolen product and that he would spend every penny of his $40 Billion to destroy android. Steve jobs said that Google's actions amounted to Grand Theft and that he would ravage a thermonuclear war to correct what is wrong.
