Yes what you are reading is right. AppleInsider’s recent post took me by surprise and so I thought why not share this with you and see how you react to this. Steven Levy’s recently released a book on Google, entitled “In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes Our Live. In this book, he reveals that Google wanted Steve Jobs as their CEO.
Yesterday’s iPad 2 launch event went in a fashion we have become accustomed to. Steve Jobs took the stage, which was a surprise given he was on a medical leave, and as expected he shared some sensational statistics – iPhone sales crossing the 100 million mark, 15 M iPads sold in 2010, and so on. But one thing which caught my attention was Steve Jobs comparing iPad apps count (65,000) to that of Honeycomb (100). More on this in the coming paragraph.
Are you laughing hard as you read this or are you in complete shock? Both situations are valid and justified. My reaction to this is the later one. I mean come on, Steve Jobs would have known that the President is coming from Russia and he still presented him with an AT&T locked iPhone 4.
