    What If... Steve Jobs Was Google's CEO

    [​IMG]

    That is not actually a question for you, but the original request by Google when they were searching for a CEO. This question was obviously answered with a capital NO by Steve Jobs, but my question is what if he said yes.

    Here is what I think of Steve Jobs:
    He is an okay guy. He wants what he wants, and gets what he wants. He is always doing everything he can to get his objective done regardless of the cost.

    Now here is what I think of Google:
    Google is an innovative company and they really do some great stuff with the software that comes out their offices. I think they are one of the most creative companies out there and they work hard to earn that title with hit products like Android, YouTube, Gmail, Google Docs, and more. With all that success, they obviously are doing something great.

    I would put my opinion of what I think would have happened if this was true, but to be honest I don't want to change your response.

    Tell us what you think would happen if these two were to have joined baths?

    Also keep in mind that if that would have happened, Apple would not be anything significant at this point. Michael Dell's statement "Apple should just give up" would have been came true.

    Well, instead of iOS or iDevices, it'd be gOS and gDevices... running gOS which would be today's iOS 4. So, in the end, it would suck. ;)

    The reason for my thinking is because either way, he would've thought the same as he does at Apple and he most likely would not have bought Android.

    Steve Jobs has always been hardware guy and Google a software company so it wouldn't have been a good fit for either. I'm glad it never happened.

    I'm glad it didn't happen, Apple has too much control over there products and that's not good for the consumer.

    Glad that never happened . . there's alot of reasons not to like any company but with Apple products being overpriced for what they are then to throw Steve Jobs' arrogance in the mix . .just bad all around!

    It means we will have Apple or Windows. Because Google will be locked down and Apple will be open!!
