I am Jobs, hear me ROAR

We all thought that Steve Jobs was the friendly face of technology, what with his cuddly corporate image and personal unveilings of gadgets that he had basically no hand in making. But it turns out that Jobs is just as capable of unleashing the rage of a thousand angry bees at his rivals. Take Google for instance, at whom Jobs is furious because of their foray into the market that iPhone calls its own with the Nexus One.

Jobs is alleged to have said in a private meeting for employees that: ‘We did not enter the search business. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them. One more thing. This don’t be evil mantra. It’s bulls**t.’

Ouch. But not content with lashing out at rival tech behemoth Google, Jobs has also found time to badmouth the makers of Flash, Adobe, who recently bemoaned the iPad’s lack of supporter for their software.

‘They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it,’ he counter-wibbled Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy. Whenever a Mac crashes, more often than not it’s because of Flash…the world is moving to HTML 5.’ What a bitch, eh?
