Jobs: "Google's don't be evil mantra is bullshit"
Some much for the friendly way Google and Apple have worked side by side over the past years. When Eric Schmidt was still part of the Apple board you wouldn't hear a single harsh word coming out of either company towards the other. Ever since Google decided to enter the phone business, and with that become a competitor of Apple, however all bets are off.
In a talk after the Apple keynote in which Steve Jobs announced the iPad the Apple boss decided to not take mince and speak his mind. He was fierce about his former partners in crime: "This don’t be evil mantra: It’s bullshit."
Jobs was pretty clear about how he felt about Google launching their Android platform and growing in the mobile market:
"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."
According to Wired magazine Jobs also fired at Adobe while explaining why there is no flash on the iPad:
"They are lazy. 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. The world is moving to HTML5."
