Steve Jobs’ Comments on Google, Adobe

Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, has made some provocative comments concerning Adobe and Apple rival Google at a meeting with employees last week, according to reports.

Jobs reportedly made fun of Google’s motto, “Don’t be evil.” He called it “a load of crap,” but some reports have said he used a stronger and cruder term. Tensions between Google and Apple have been on the rise, especially since the release of Google’s Nexus One smartphone, which is meant to be a competitor to Apple’s iPhone. Apple may even be dropping Google as the search engine on the iPhone. Google’s browser and operating system also pose a threat to Apple.

Jobs called Adobe lazy, adding, “They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it.” This comment is really no surprise, considering Apple’s refusal to support Adobe Flash on its mobile devices. Jobs said that Flash is too buggy and is often the cause of crashes on Mac computers.

Jobs said that Apple will work on an “A-plus” update to the iPhone so Android cannot keep up.
