Google’s Schmidt: Apple’s business practice not “the adult way”

It’s fair to say that Eric Schmidt’s relationship with Apple is complicated. He joined Apple’s board of directors in 2006, but left in 2009 following increased competition from Google (where he was chief) in the smartphone market place. In fact, many think his position at Cupertino is what inspired the sudden change from BlackBerry-like prototypes running Android to the more iPhone-esque designs that we’ve become accustomed to. Read in to that what you will. My thoughts: competition is good.

Having removed Maps and YouTube from iOS’ default apps list, it obviously wasn’t going to take long for Schmidt to respond with some not-so-kind, and poorly disguised digs towards Apple. WSJ quotes:

Obviously, we would have preferred them to use our maps. They threw YouTube off the home screen [of iPhones and iPads]. I’m not quite sure why they did that. The press would like to write the sort of teenage model of competition, which is, ‘I have a gun, you have a gun, who shoots first?’

The adult way to run a business is to run it more like a country. They have disputes, yet they’ve actually been able to have huge trade with each other. They’re not sending bombs at each other. I think both Tim [Cook, Apple's CEO] and Larry [Page, Google's CEO], the sort of successors to Steve [Jobs] and me if you will, have an understanding of this state model. When they and their teams meet, they have just a long list of things to talk about.

He was also asked whether or not Apple and Google had spoken directly regarding any of the lawsuits, but Schmidt didn’t give a direct or clear response. He simply stated that the two companies are aware of each others’ plans, and that he was unsure as to why Cupertino was suing manufacturers instead of Google directly.

    By the way, the Clintons have built up personal grudge on me, that’s for sure, during this war of fascism vs anti-fascism; That’s heartbreaking if so, since I have admired the Clintons since I learned their names in the early 1990s; I’d tell the Clintons : hold up your grudge on me, miscarriage of justice is going on; it’s better when we could learn each other’s opinion with direct communication. my contact caomingpeter@126.com

    Gabriele Scheler’s campus atrocity on me [--- http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj --- attention to the 7 photo evidence], by which Sebastian Thrun and Eric Schmidt started a series of fascism crimes, is a simple case with clear evidence and with serious police investigation.
    But how come Gabriele Scheler could come back and falsely accuse me for sexual assault to molest my life year after year without an end? How come the judicial officer could made up a sexual assault case against me without interviewing me even once? How could they assist Scheler to terrorize/extort Stanford without even showing me any testimony and evidence of such accusations against me? how could this case still not be clarified in judicial system after eight years? Because the crimes are not only coming from those criminals who had committed such crimes, but also coming from certain malicious officers (e.g. a powerful officer namely ZZZ from Santa Clara DA’s Office, and after ZZZ stepped down, another officer YYY, and also officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case, and very likely officer RRR who insist May Zhou’s case is suicide or accident but not murder) who egregiously miscarriage of justice.
    Gabriele Scheler had been rude to Japanese and South Korea Scholars (Asians) in the same office before she assaulted me; Sebastian Thrun collateralled with Gabriele Scheler to trap me while played a role in May Zhou’s case; Eric Schmidt, for Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s sake, had told me “May Zhou is an Asian, police may not even find out who did it …what if it happened to you?” And it did happen as Eric Schmidt predicted that police may not even find out who did it, which is really scary to me

    Q&A about Fascism crimes on land of Palo Alto which Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel had involved and which were covered up by certain malicious officers with miscarriage of justice
    ===============
    Ducatigirl,
     
    Don’t try to fool the public; 
     
    >>>You are obviously very upset.
     
    You said it; as a victim of a series of fascism crimes, I am further victimized for many years by certain malicious officers in the judicial system ZZZ/YYY/VVV/RRR who chose to join this fascism circle; miscarriage of justice is going on
    ……………………..
     
    >>>how is an extremely intelligent and educated woman like Angela Merkel involved? 
     
    — “extremely intelligent and educated” would not guarntee innocent in an extremely secret and extremely intelligently-plotted crime; I have clearly stated how Angela Merkel involved: during their fight with Stanford over Stanford ruling against criminal activities of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt;
    ……………………..
    >>>what does this have to do with online learning, anyway?
    — Such fascism crimes Sebastian Thrun involved into would not be tolerated anywhere in human society, including in this article; do you want to be taught by someone who had caused killing of an innocent student?
    ……………………..
    >>>he has harrassed Eric Scmidt, CEO of Google, claiming that he is trying to kill him and that he killed May Zhao in 2007
    —Eric Schmidt, ex-CEO of Google, and powers behind Eric Schmidt, had for sake of Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler, systematically gone after every private relation I have in this world, and mobbed them to deceive me, condemn me, be hostile to me; Eric Schmidt/Sebastian Thrun/Ed Feigenbaum/Gabriele Scheler/Angela Merkel’s side had almost taken my life; Yes, they had killed May Zhou in 2007, did I make it clear to the public? Why don’t you ask them to deny it to the public?
    ……………………..
     
    >>>Peter, I promise you that Eric Schmidt does not even have a German accent.
    — Schmidt is a surname of German origin; Schmidt fought for German scholars Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler, and Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel tried to reinstall Eric Schmidt’s power by setting up coups in Stanford and Google;
    ……………………..
    >>>He has also filed some false police reports,
    — Stanford Police wrote the report after serious investigation in 2004; It is Gabriele Scheler who filed false police reports, I did not; and that’s why in police report, Gabriele Scheler is clearly defined as a criminal suspect while I am a victim; [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler]
    Gabriele Scheler must have recanted her testimony and gone to another place to file further false reports such as ‘sexual assault’, but the officer ZZZ/YYY/VVV who’s handling Gabriele Scheler’s accusations had made up the case on Scheler’s recanted testimony without even interviewing me once; so in Gabriele Scheler’s case, ZZZ/YYY/VVV had collateralled with criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler to file false police reports;
    ………………………..
    >>>PAPD has been kind enough not to prosecute him for, as in the case of Gabriele Schiele, a German student.
    —Such a shameless claim from you. Though I didn’t know the case is handled at PAPD, would you tell me the name of the officer “who’s been kind enough not to prosecute” me? What’s his/her contact? from which agency?
     
    I always heard there are officers who tried to prosecute me on Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun’s accusations, and they had actually molested my life underhandedly, and I had challenged such officers to show me their real identities and bring them on directly to me, and let’s clarify the case with confrontation; my contact [caomingpeter AT 163 DOT com] , but they never dare;
     
    I am open and eager to learn real identities of such officers who try to prosecute me; I have a lot to say about Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel and miscarriage of justice from officers ZZZ/VVV/YYY/RRR, etc.
     
    Do you mean such figures like Gabriele Scheler and Sebastian Thrun would still be allowed to live around Stanford after their misbehaviors had caused so much crimes which had cost life of an innocent Stanford student as May Zhou is and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me? Would Stanford police/PAPD allow them to still be there? Who’s going to be responsible for the dire consequences of their fascism crimes?
     
    Do you mean, even though such malicious officers didn’t fulfill their responsibility to prosecute criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler for years, now they want to turn back and prosecute victim as I am? I mean, come on, and bring them on directly to me
    ………………………….
    P.S. Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler--- http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj --- attention to the 7 photo evidence to see how cruel these fascists are]

  • PeterCaoAAA

    The problem with Gabriele Scheler’s campus atrocity case [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ---http://t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence]  is that Gabriele Scheler’s side had recanted their testimony after Stanford police investigation in 2004; there are certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ mentioned above) who chose to stand on this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler’s side and collateralled with Scheler to conspire victims(e.g. Stanford, May Zhou, me, and later on Google as well) in order to cover up their crimes while applying retaliation on victims, but Scheler’s side dare never show me any of their evidence nor testimony (mine were post on the web) which they used to molest victims for years, and most of all, such malicious officers do not want to see this case from being clarified
    But without clarification of this case, more and more retaliatory crimes were committed from Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side, which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, and I bet more would come if this case remain unclarified as it is now
    So the point at this time is, who is this officer, namely VVV, in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s accusation of sexual assault? (Is VVV from FBI?) and who had underhandedly made up numerous accusations against me at authorities trying to intimidate me from clarifying such fascism criminal cases, and to terrorize others from ruling against those fascism criminals; VVV is miscarriage of justice and I hereby publicly challenge VVV to bring on details of Gabriele Scheler’s accusations direct to me and clarify the case with confrontation at authorities.

    Q&A of flaws in the handling of Stanford student May Zhou’s death by certain police officers, which served a big role in a series of fascism crimes, in response to Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun’s side of their argues at  
    [i.doubt.it/tag/sebastian-thrun/]
    =====================
    “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, would 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 with the death of May Zhou for sake of Thrun during their fight with Stanford. I said they killed May Zhou to intimidate me and to terrorize Stanford; 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?  
    ———————
    “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

  • PeterCaoAAA

    Here is a real problem at this stage: who is the officer responsible for May Zhou’s case?
     
    On 2012/02/21 StanfordDaily article “virtual-learning” [http://www.stanforddaily.com/2012/02/21/virtual-learning/] 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).”
    ————————————————
    Before the officer who’s responsible would contact me for a serious discussion, how could you know there is no such PHYSICAL evidence to say May Zhou’s death is definitely a murder but not a suicide? As a matter of fact, 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 responsible for May Zhou’s case, whom I should talk to? Could you have me connect with this officer? I have serious stuff to report
     
    Meanwhile, why don’t you help us to figure out what’s the motivation behind May Zhou’s death

  • PeterCaoAAA

    Also, someone from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes ((e.g. Sebastian Thrun’s boss in Stanford Computer Science Professor Emeritus Ed Feigenbaum, who had peeked my emails, manipulated my friends and relatives to deceive me/condemn me/be hostile to me, which police told me is crime; and a big donor CCC who manipulated the handling of this case with discriminative favor of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun in Stanford, and more, Thrun’s student and colleagues had for sake of Thrun (possibly with guidance of someone as Feigenbaum?) falsely accused me at police which I believe is another set of crime … professor teaches students to commit crime … professor Ed Feigenbaum of Sebastian Thrun’s boss in Stanford Computer Science department is a crime supporter… details later … )) which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.

  • PeterCaoAAA

    Sebastian Thrun, a Germany Scholar who had got Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit when she visited Stanford in 2010, had partially left Stanford Computer Science department because he is in debt to Stanford people with his involvement into Stanford student May Zhou’s death, he is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by powers from Sebastian Thrun’s side for many years. Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public his involvement into such fascism crimes till today and I am still waiting to see why he dare not
    I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel had monitored and involved into Sebastian Thrun, Gabriele Scheler and Eric Schmidt’s fight against ruling from authorities of Stanford and authorities of U.S. over their unruly criminal behaviors on campus of Stanford, and which ensued a series of crimes, including killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, all on land of America, etc.

  • PeterCaoAAA

    Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, had provided political support for a series of fascism crimes which related to a cold-blooded killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou (a girl of U.S. citizen, Taiwan origin, MIT alumnus and Stanford Ph.D. candidate) as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler  ], in which an extremely irrational Germany lady named Gabriele Scheler had bitterly assaulted me. Chancellor Merkel might as well back up a coup in Stanford after she visited Stanford in 2010, though it was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. It is an interesting question of how much Chancellor Angela Merkel had involved into such series of fascism crimes on land of America. I bet with the intervention of Germany power into these cases, such series of fascism crimes would never be clarified and such fascism crimes on land of America would never be concurred by U.S. Authorities. A very serious offending to the dignity and sovereignty of people of the United States as well as to the whole world of humanity

  • PeterCaoAAA

    Google’s era under Eric Schmidt had involved into multiple crimes in Stanford which is fascism by nature.
     
    Google’s Eric Schmidt had abused Google resources to financially and politically support a criminal suspect named Gabriele Scheler, along with a Stanford Computer Science faculty Sebastian Thrun, against ruling from Stanford and police authorities. During their fight with Stanford, Eric Schmidt’s side had murdered an innocent Stanford student May Zhou in 2007 to threaten me and to terrorize Stanford. When they found I would not compromise a bit but actively tried to clarify the case, Eric Schmidt’s side did plot a murder on me as well. The only reason they didn’t make it a reality is because they were closely watched by police and they are afraid of leaving evidence (not because they have any mercy on me as a human being, fascism by nature.) Eric Schmidt lost his CEO position because of his involvement into these crimes.   
     
    These accusations stand still which Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public. Eric Schmidt and Sebastian Thrun had not paid for their crimes and they would have to.

    Didn’t Google deny Apple turn by turn directions? Where were the adults when that decision was made?

  • raster

    Rewind to 2007, the original intent was Google software services running on the iPhone. Unfortunately when Google also shifted to hardware that changed things.
     
    See excerpt of Schmidt in the 2007 keynote. I wonder if he already envisioned Google producing hardware during this talk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vtdamKEcH8

  • superbowlpatriot

    Business is War.

  • EdRoss6

    Call me credulous, but I take Schmidt’s comments at face value here, and the way this article dramatizes his comments seems to bolster the point he was making:
     
    Big business is big, technical, and complicated; so Google and Apple have a big, technical, complicated relationship.  A good news story is concise, personal, and simple to grasp, so news coverage of this relationship is often a distortion into a dramatic, ad hominem, conflict.

  • JoeyMcCoy

    The problem with running 2 companies like countries is – they aren’t countries. And if you want your maps to stay on the iphone don’t deny apple turn by turn because you don’t want them to have what’s on an android phone.

  • Hans Novac

    Interesting last sentence.  Looks like Schmidt would prefer Apple sue Google vs. Samsung, HTC, etc.  
     
    Add me to the list of suspicious people who things Google’s adults routinely route iOS clients in a manner to slow them down when accessing YouTube,  in searches, etc.  Run your own test where you have a stable connection.  Sometimes it takes foreever to load, followed by a 5-10 minute wait when things load rapidly, then slowly…not the same on vimeo, or other streaming sites/services and never with Yahoo search.

  • Chen

    Run business as countries?  Brilliant.   
     
    That would have made Schmidt head of the spy agency of Google while he served on the Apple board.

  • pjc

    “many think his position at Cupertino is what inspired the sudden change from BlackBerry-like prototypes running Android to the more iPhone-esque designs that we’ve become accustomed to.”
     
    Really? What sane person thinks that? Google purchased Android in 2005, where Andy Rubin had been developing the OS since 2003. That would have been well before Schmidt joining the Apple board. Not much is known about the early days of development but what is clear is that the first version to see the light of day was intended to run on a variety of handset designs and had full support for both physical keyboards as well as touchscreens. There were two prototypes released and one did look much like a Blackberry but the other decidedly did not, and the SDK that accompanied them provided equivalent levels of support for both designs.
     
    Note that development on the iPhone did not begin until 2005, two years after Android. Being developed at more or less the same time, it isn’t surprising that there is a family resemblance as they draw on the same predecessors as well as the same contemporary hardware environment.
     
    Many people should perhaps read Wikipedia before writing historical fantasy.

  • Dimli

    @ElectricGuy No Google offered them to extend their contract for Google maps with turn by turn.  This new contract would require a Google icon to be present on the maps though.  Apple refused the deal.  Not saying it was good or bad for Apple to do so, but it definitely wasn’t Google denying Apple turn by turn.

  • Jay Arr

    I am a big fan of Apple products.  But Apple is acting more like a spoiled child, by ranting and suing everyone.  Tim and company are taking their eyes off innovation and devoting too much time to legal.  Pretty soon Android will be seen as more innovative and smarter.  Samsung has a better phone that iPhone 5 at the moment.  The real contest will be played out in the next 18 months.  Unfortunately for Apple my bet is that Android will be more dominant, unless Apple seriously gets back on track by developing superior software.

    In the real world of “big business” and “complicated relationships”… as everyone describes this relationship.
    Did you ever imagine that the “offer” you credit Google as making, had extra conditions that made it unfair for Apple. Google was not only asking for additional money (i.e. Google increased the license fees they were charging Apple) AND Google expected Apple to cross-license other Apple-owned technology.
    That was too much for Apple to take. So they went on their own. And I’m glad they did. Yes, Apple’s new Maps software isn’t as good as Google’s….. but it will be. And I believe Apple has the potential to innovate more than Google.

    @EdRoss6:
    You said that any news coverage of complex relationships often becomes personal attacks. Not sure I agree.
    As far as Schmidt’s quote, he didn’t say much. The only thing he said was his wanting companies to behave as countries — cooperating on some things even if they disagree on others. This is obvious and I’m sure all CEOs will agree. The problem occurs when companies (like countries) do subversive/underhanded things to their competitors. THAT is what Google has been accused of (and not just by Apple). I see Schmidt’s quote as an attempt to over-simplify a complex relationship — one in which they must claim some fault.

    @pjc:
    Are you claiming Wikipedia is a reputable source for facts? If so, you are showing a bit of naiveté.
    Regarding the quote you have a problem with… many people think that Google’s designs for a mobile phone were originally simplistic and just an evolution of the “BlackBerry” model. Their early designs didn’t have a buttonless all-touch design. After Schmidt got wind of Apple’s design (while he was on the Apple board of directors), all of a sudden (in months), Google’s designs magically transformed.
    Lastly, your point that “development on the iPhone did not begin until 2005″ is patently incorrect. If you know the history of Apple’s development on such devices, they had an early patent on an iPad-like device (which uncannily looked just like today’s model) many years BEFORE 2005. Apple decided to not create a large device at that time, but rather to shrink the design to make it a handheld design. If you knew REAL history (and not the kind on Wikipedia), you’d know Apple had extensive (a decade) of research and development in such devices during the 1980s — remember their “Newton” PDA. It was decades ahead of the competition. So no… Google’s design doesn’t draw on the “same predecessors” since much of the Newton development & findings never made it to the board room (where Schmidt was intently listening). Google only had the BlackBerry as a “target”. In those days, there was no concept of a smartphone, as we think of today. Apple created that concept of a multitouch device with a multitude of user-loadable apps through the “air” — allowing it to do nearly anything. In 2005, BlackBerry’s did NOT have a GPS receiver (they used triangulation for E911), they didn’t have an accelerometer, no WiFi transceiver, and definitely no user-loadable apps. That is what Google was copying in 2005 — until Schmidt heard about Apple’s ideas.
    Of course you won’t believe anything I’ve said. So I suggest you go to REPUTABLE sites to research the facts.
