Apple CEO Steve Jobs: Google’s “Don’t Be Evil” Pledge is BS

For those of you who doubt the severity of the animosity between Apple and Google, noted this weekend’s story from Wired, which got the goods on comments Apple CEO Steve Jobs made during a Town Hall meeting after the launch of Apple’s iPad:

On Google: We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them, he says. Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there’s no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.” Audience roars.

Priceless. Classic Jobs, not one to mince words. He also said Adobe was lazy, but the clash between the iconic Flash maker and the iconic computer maker is boring compared to the Apple Vs. Google.

Forget about Google Vs. Microsoft (and Yahoo). Google Vs. Apple is bound to be a title fight for the mobile Web over the next decade.

This could get very interesting but I’m not sure as big as Apple is that they have the funds or pull to take on Google which seems to have an endless supply of funds. I could see Google covertly removing any Apple references from their search results, or at least moving them to the second or third page.  How long till Google makes a play to buy Apple? Nah I don’t see this ever happening. Sure would  make things interesting though.
