Apple's Steve Jobs calls BS on Google's 'Don't be evil' motto
If for some reason you still think Apple and Google are all buddy-buddy when it comes to accepting your dollars, well, CEO Steve Jobs just put an end to that when addressing his employees at a town hall-style event later in the day. Speaking anonymously to Wired, a tipster says Jobs flat-out called Google's "Don't be evil" motto BS while going on the defensive.
Some of that's likely just rallying the troops. But it starts to make you think that possibly Jobs does see Android in his rear-view mirror. [via The iPhone Blog]

Basically they're both evil. Power corrupts. Companies want your money. That's what they're in business for.
Google lulls you with lots of freebees while monitoring everything you read see and search for, to be used against you for profit when it suits them.
1- They only need one more version of Android to have a better product (hopefully 3.0 will be it)
2- They could (should?) go out of their way to help other smartphone owners download and install Android on their device. Even through third parties like XDA-Developers. You know, some innocent little tips, nods, pushes. :-) I've been enjoying booting Android 2.0.1 on my Touch Pro2. It's not useable yet, but I keep hoping that within a couple of months, I'll be able to flash an Android ROM and ditch WinMo for good.
What has Apple done to YOU?
If not for Apple, there would be no iPhone, and probably NO ANDROID either.
Apple does inovate - maybe not to every persons desires or needs- but they sure do inovate - and they are in-fact far ahead of any one else in this business - else WHY does EVERYBODY COPY APPLE!
But random apple bashin not based in fact is just as bad.
Some folks here are embarassing. Apparently some folks are here simply because they don't like apple. :(
WRT whose evil, no company is going to be completely not evil so its a choice betwee whose less evil and i'd have to go with Google as being far less evil than Apple.
I have lost all respect for Google and Bing is my new default search engine.
