In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Google CEO Eric Schmidt talked a bit about its competitors. He said that Google is looking at Bing as a competitor, not Apple.
As quoted detiINET from Neowin, Saturday (25/09/2010), Schmidt said in the interview that Bing is a search engine that is very competitive. He also said that the media has forgotten that Microsoft is also playing in the realm of search engines.
Along with all the innovation that was developed at Google Labs, Google's CEO also explained that they would continue to monitor the development of Bing as the competitors.
And what about Apple as a competitor of Google's Android platform? In this case, Schmidt was actually looking at Apple rather than as competitors. Google considers Apple as a partner. "Google does not publicly consider Apple as a competitor, even though they claim that the giant consumer companies (Apple-red) is a great partner," wrote a description Neowin.
Before the interview Schmidt could explain briefly that there are agreements in which the Apple iPhone includes Google as the search engines. Obviously this is a distinct advantage for Google, before they actually head to head in a new battle.
Over time, in the end the two companies will market the same clashing. Yes, with the presence of Google TV, Apple TV practically got a new rival. We'll see if Google bosses still think Apple is not their rival. (Detik.com)
