Google Chairman Eric Schmidt Raps Apple on iPhone Maps, Floats Yahoo! Search Pact

The war for mobile supremacy between Apple and Google is the hottest game in town. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt was in Tokyo Tuesday, and he used the occasion to express his frustration with Apple’s decision to yank Google Maps off the new iPhone 5. That move prompted a minor furor in the tech world, because Apple’s map application is inferior to Google Maps, which is generally viewed as the gold standard for mass-market mobile mapping products. Schmidt, who served on Apple’s board of directors until 2009, when Steve Jobs kicked him off over the obvious Android conflict-of-interest, asserted that Google would like to remain partners with Apple on a variety of mobile fronts, including web search, but acknowledged that the ball remains in Apple’s court. Schmidt also made some eyebrow-raising remarks about the possibility that Google, the undisputed web search leader, might link up with its erstwhile competitor Yahoo!, which is now run by a well-respected Google alumna.

The iPhone 5 maps dustup is just the latest front in an epic battle between Google and Apple for supremacy in the mobile computing market. Apple’s late co-founder Steve Jobs went utterly ballistic when Google launched its Android mobile operating system. He was convinced that Android was ripping off Apple’s iPhone features. So he kicked Schmidt off the board, launching an increasingly bitter rivalry between the two tech giants that continues to this day. Apple’s worldwide intellectual property (patent) campaign against Samsung, HTC, and other Google partners (including the search giant’s newly acquired Motorola Mobility division) is really a proxy fight against Android, which Tim Cook continues to wage on behalf of his departed mentor.

Apple and Google’s mobile models are diametrically opposed. Apple has succeeded with end-to-end control over the iPhone process, from hardware to software to mobile apps. Google’s model is to unleash the Android system for free to the hardware and developer community at large, in order to leverage the power of developers and builders worldwide. The result is that Apple makes vastly more money on each iPhone it sells, while Android has chalked up astonishing market-share gains, growing to lead the global mobile OS market in just 5 years.

Apple’s decision to yank Google Maps off the new iPhone is a classic Apple maneuver — using its market power to favor its own products. Unfortunately, in this case, Apple’s map product is inferior to Google’s, which has caused significant agita in the tech community. Speaking to reporters in Tokyo Tuesday, Schmidt’s frustration with Apple’s map decision was palpable beneath the surface of his relentlessly wonky demeanor.

“We think it would have been better if they had kept ours. But what do I know?” Schmidt told reporters in comments cited by Reuters. “What were we going to do, force them not to change their mind? It’s their call.” Indeed it is. This map flare-up is a consequence of Apple’s ironclad control of its flagship iPhone product. At the end of the day, Apple CEO Tim Cook is responsible for his own company, but the decision to boot Google Maps off the iPhone 5 in favor of its inferior product has triggered a sour reaction from the tech community, because it comes from a company — Apple — that ostensibly values the user experience above all else.

Schmidt went on to say that Google hopes to remain a partner with Apple on mobile web search, but admitted that he has no control over the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant’s decision-making process. “I’m not doing any predictions,” Schmidt told reporters in comments cited by Reuters. “We want them to be our partner. We welcome that. I’m not going to speculate at all what they’re going to do. They can answer that question as they see fit,” he said. Google has somewhat more leverage on this front, because it dominates the web search market. What is Apple going to do? Strike a deal with its mortal enemy Microsoft to make Bing (which powers Yahoo! search) the default iPhone mobile web search provider? I don’t think so.

(MOREApple Planning Pandora Rival: Is Web Radio Ready for Prime Time?)

Schmidt also took a dig at Apple’s mobile strategy, and chastised the tech media for being “obsessed with Apple’s marketing events and Apple’s branding,” and ignoring Android’s success. He added that his rival’s world-beating publicity machine is “great for Apple but the numbers are on our side.”

Finally, Schmidt made some rather startling comments about the possibility that Google might link up with its one-time rival Yahoo! on a web search partnership, as picked up by Eric Jackson over at Forbes. This is not going to happen — regulators would never allow it. Jackson, who is a smart tech-watcher (and Yahoo! shareholder), seems to think this is a plausible idea, and he makes a good point. Times have changed: Yahoo! has largely exited the web search market, thanks to its deal with Microsoft. But it’s not going to happen. Google controls 70% of the web search market. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will never allow a company with that kind of market power to assume control over the search business of the number three player in the space. (At least I hope not.) But the fact that Schmidt raised the possibility of a Google-Yahoo! pact is a reflection of how quickly the big-tech ecosystem is evolving.

Ultimately, we’re watching an epic war between two tech icons — Apple and Google — over control of the smartphone market. Everyone agrees that the locus of competition in the Internet space is shifting to mobile devices. This is the next great battle in the war for the Web. The recent iPhone maps flap is just one front in this conflict. Intellectual property is another. Competition between these two powerful tech companies has been a huge boon to consumers — innovation in the mobile phone and tablet market is proceeding at break-neck speed. This fight is incremental, global, and increasingly bitter, as Schmidt’s thinly-veiled jabs at Apple illustrate. Both companies are sitting on massive stockpiles of cash, and pouring billions of dollars into research and development. As we head into the fall, the war between Apple and Google is the hottest game in town.

Why can't everyone just all get along :)  People like all of the companies for at least one product they have.

Also, other than Angela Merkel of Germany

Chancellor, it seems there exist a power center of anti-authority in Stanford

Computer Science department in this fascism circle to support unruly behaviors

of Sebastian Thrun's side

 

Someone (e.g. Sebastian Thrun, Thrun's boss in

Stanford Computer Science Professor Emeritus Ed Feigenbaum, and a big donor CCC

and more, etc.) from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer

Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes which is

highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as

an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.

 

But would anyone from Stanford Computer Science

department be willing to live under its shadow of such fascism crimes? or would

anyone from this department give moral or spiritual support to such fascists

who's misbehavior had caused cold-blooded killing of an innocent student from

their own school of Stanford? Can anyone take place of these fascists to

clarify their legal responsibilities and face legal consequences of their

fascism crimes? Can anyone in this department answer the question: what's the

motivation behind May Zhou's death?

 

For sake of their own fame, Stanford Computer

Science department has the responsibility to go after those fascists to make

them pay for their crimes

Obviously, certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ, YYY, VVV, RRR) do

exist and I believe they had abused their judicial power to further victimize

victims in reward to those fascism criminals. Something fishy is going behind.

I also believe that, by law, I have the right to request to see the testimony

and evidence they used against me along with their real identity, to clarify

the case with confrontation, and that’s what I am requesting.

How much credibility would an officer have, if he/she

underhandedly made up cases to curse you while hiding their evidence/testimony

and their real identities from your eyes?

Also, I’d tell whichever officer, especially officer VVV who’s in

charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case, who put me on the “wanted list” that I want

you, too. Bring them on directly to me. Let’s clarify the whole case with

confrontation

"Dr. Kelly Arthur of the Sonoma County

coroner's office, is reported to have reviewed it and said she stood by her

original finding that there were not any signs of trauma." --- that still

would not gurantee a suicide conclusion, wouldn't it? where/when/how did those

trauma come into being, then? Can Dr. Kelly Arthur explain? or would it be

wiser for the officer who drew conclusion of suicide to make sure

where/when/how did those trauma come into being before drawing conclusion of

suicide?

-------------------

“Except Peter Cao, who asserts that Mengyao Zhou

was murdered by or with the

help of Schmidt and Thrun, in order to intimidate him personally.” --- Schmidt

did threatened my life for sake of Thrun during their fight with Stanford

people. I said they killed May Zhou to intimidate me and to terrorize Stanford

people; you omitted the serious part. My statement is far more reasonable than

police can give, don't you agree?

--------------------

"...

and an email that Zhou sent to her 16-year-old sister as “consistent with a

goodbye note.” 

--- can we see such an email before we could believe it? How much good-bye is

there in it? How to explain the fact that May Zhou had transferred money to pay

off debt before her disappearance? digital messages could be unreliable, by the

way;

---------------------

 

“But then you can’t expect someone killing

themselves to make choices that appear rational to others. If it’s not

tasteless to speculate, perhaps she felt ashamed and wanted to hide herself.”

--- Is that the way you describe death of an

innocent girl as May Zhou is? Shame on you!

--- Would the officer in charge of May Zhou's

case agree? How to get connect with such an officer? I have serious stuff to

report

Google's Eric

Schmidt had lost his title of CEO and Sebastian Thrun partially left Stanford

in 2011 because of his involvment into a series of fascism crimes which related

to the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an

unsuccessful plot on my life.

Powers from this fascism circle had since then tried to reinstall Eric

Schmidt's control power over Google, and they had set up several coups in the

past but without success.

My observation is that they are plotting another round of coup recently: if

they could not reinstall Eric Schmidt's control power in Google, the best bet

for this fascism circle to get tighter control of Google is to alienate the two

Google founders, and install the one who would choose to take this fascism

circle's side while eliminating control power of the other one over Google. And

by getting tighter control of Google, this fascism circle would get a power

resource to further cover up their involvment into fascism crimes in the past,

which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou

and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me as well, and apply retaliations on

victims easier.

So did those from this fascism circle find that Sergey Brin would be the one,

between the two founders, who tends to take side with this fascism circle and

who tends to compromise with with powers on Angela Merkel, Sebastian Thrun,

Eric Schmidt and Gabriele Scheler's side? Would Sergey Brin fall in the trap of

this fascism circle, like Eric Schmidt did to himself? Or would anyone count on

powers on side of Angela Merke, or even lend hand to Angela Merkel's side, to

plot a coup to Google recently, like what they did to Stanford in 2010, though

the 2010 Stanford coup was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in

time. Is such a plot from this fascism circle over Google close to make it at

this moment? That's interesting to learn.

My advise to powers in this fascism circle: stop playing tricks or you will

always loose; face the facts, clarify the case, and assume legal and moral

responsibilities

The only thing Apple can do to beat this is to not come out with the Mini or charge too much for it this October.

If they screw that up you'll really get to watch the stock plunge.

It's not just a furor in the tech world.  I have owned Apple products since 1982, and have never let a PC into the house because I didn't want the hassle (or the viruses). Apple products usually gave me a better user experience.

But I found myself looking at Android listings for the first time, due to this. When Apple removes the tools I use MOST, I can't help but look elsewhere.

Even if Apple fixes its maps, it can't make up for the loss of streetview. Flyover is not a substitute. Apple, I tend to navigate my world by walking or driving, not by Cessna.

Here is a real problem at this stage: who is the officer responsible for May Zhou’s case? Suicide theory in May Zhou’s case remain unbelievable until the officer who said so had a direct discussion with me who’s life had been threatened by Sebastian Thrun, Eric Schmidt and Gabriele Scheler’s side with the death of May Zhou

On 2012/02/21 StanfordDaily article “virtual-learning” [http://www.stanforddaily.com/2...] in Comments part regarding to a murder case about a Stanford student May Zhou with which Eric Schmidt had threatened my life for sake of a stanford professor Sebastian Thrun and a criminal suspect named Gabriele Scheler during their fight with Stanford:

================================================

@concernedNetCitizen,

About your ARROGANT question “If you think you have evidence (and i mean physical evidence) to the contrary why do you not take it to the police, or at least post what evidence you have (and I mean PHYSICAL evidence like fibres, DNA, fingerprints and the like).”————————————————… such PHYSICAL evidence already exists and that’s what I am going to tell.

The point at this time is, who is this officer who’s respnosible for May Zhou’s case, whom I should talk to? Could you have me connect with this officer? I have serious stuff to report; my contact caomingpter@163.com or peter_vista@yahoo.com

Meanwhile, why don’t you help us to figure out what’s the motivation behind May Zhou’s death

Apple is a Bully and they have forgotten how interact with there customers. I know millions and millions of people world wide love apple products. I agree they are excellent products.  BUT I have been in retail and wholesale sales for over 30 years. One thing I have learned, is YOU CAN'T TELL people what they want and expect them to buy it.  Good or bad unless you listen you will lose in the end. After all that is what it is all about.

A job might help someone losing his/her home.  I just heard a report that Apple stock might get hurt because demand for their I-phone exceeds supply.  Gee, I wonder if they might hire more people to provide more supply in order to sell more to make more money increasing their share price and benefiting their stockholders?  Nah, they'll let the 1% job creators do the hiring, that's why they get the big tax breaks.
