Apple's Jobs disses Google Android

Tools

Attendees of an internal Apple company meeting CEO Steve Jobs held after unveiling the iPad tablet last week, say the CEO discounted the progress of Google's Android mobile platform and disparaged Adobe's Flash technology, which is not available on the iPhone or iPod Touch.

According to reports from Wired.com and Macrumors.com, Jobs said Apple will surpass Google with its own aggressive updates to the iPhone and noted that there are elements within Google, most likely those working on Android, that are seeking to "kill" the iPhone. Jobs also reportedly disparaged Google's "don't be evil" motto.

The chief executive also took aim at Adobe. Jobs reportedly said Flash is buggy and that the world is moving toward HTML5 technology, which will help render Flash obsolete.
