Google CEO discusses relationship with Apple
Apple and Google are clearly competitors on a number of levels, but being two of the largest tech companies on the planet means having to work together at times. In a recent interview with Fortune, Google CEO Larry Page dishes the dirt -- or lack thereof -- on the relationship between the two companies. Unsurprisingly, Page chooses his words carefully regarding one of his company's primary competitors.
"I think it would be nice if everybody would get along better and the users didn't suffer as a result of other people's activities," Page responds, when asked about the state of Google's interactions with Apple on the distribution front. "I try to model that. We try pretty hard to make our products be available as widely as we can. That's our philosophy. I think sometimes we're allowed to do that. Sometimes we're not."
There's no denying that a constant push and pull exists between the two companies, and it's a chess match that neither side is likely to win anytime soon. Page's responses to the Apple-based queries aren't exactly shocking, but it's an interesting read nonetheless.
