Google's Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg talk about the company's culture, Apple, Amazon, Samsung, and Alibaba
Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt and former senior VP of Products Jonathan Rosenberg were co-authors of the book “How Google Works” - a piece, aimed to entertain and educate readers, while detailing everything the two authors have learned about corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption, for the 10+ years that they've spent in the company.

The duo sat down for a 15-minute interview with Bloomberg TV, to talk about Google's culture and ideology on products and innovating. The talk branched out to discussing Apple's new iPhone 6 (spoiler – Schmidt said that Samsung had the same products out a year ago); market shares, strategies, and competition between iOS and Android; Amazon as a simultaneous competitor and partner to Google; Alibaba's potential move towards western markets; and others. Watch the full interview below.

I'm glad "adult supervision" for the two founders are over. I felt Schmidt would've held back Google's potential if he stayed. But I do agree that "mobile has won". In my original country people use Android phones as their primary computer from Lenovo, Samsung, ASUS, etc.

"spoiler – Schmidt said that Samsung had the same products out a year ago" Very true.

I like how he repeated it again when asked again. lol Great things the other guy said in response to a question about Amazon being a partner and competitor: "As a competitor they keep us on our toes, as a partner they advertize of Google" "collectively we work together to grow the pie to build the industry instead of fighting over smaller portions." Wish more companies felt this way.. One thing Eric pointed out is that Amazon is an Android user.....which is right because the OS Amazon uses on its phone and tablet is Android. So even if Amazon is a competitor in the end it helps Android as a whole....which is Google's baby. About Alibaba: Lady: Jack has alot of money to buy businesses in the US" Eric: So does Google...." Brilliant...lol. Eric was asked which product changed the world the most. Eric says the Internet ....and this is something I have been saying for years....It might be up there with electricity, the wheel, etc. This lil clip is worth watching.

And over at appleinsiders's article of this you can read all the hateful drivel comments showing just how pathetic their readers are. Oh, I doubt their moderator cares about that. But he'll sure moderate my comments on how wrong his (Daniel Dilger) articles are.

why are you over there? AppleInsider is well known to be the most anti-Google tech site on the internet. Everyone from the commenters to the authors have always something negative to say about Google/Android/Samsung. Yet they never say anything about Apple's flaws. Ironically, they also create more Google-related articles than most Apple tech sites. And i'm an iPhone 6 user.

I agreed with you that AppleInsider views are mostly unbalanced.
