Working together in perfect, haaarmony

Last week we gave you the story of how Steve Jobs is taking on his former friends at Google with renewed vigour by saying mean things about them (‘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.’), showing the world that he is not on good terms with the search engine giant. This a problem for gadget and tech consumers, especially those using smartphones like the Nexus One, Symbian or the all-conquering iPhone.

Why? Well it means that certain apps won’t get approval for the iPhone’s App Store just out of spite, meaning that we have the exact same divisions that we do in home computing – Apple products for people who love not being able to use things because Steve Jobs says so because it look so purdy and every other product on the market for normal people who want to be able to add things to their machine as and when they like. Apple recently blocked a Google Voice app, for no particular reason at all, for instance.

However, this needn’t be the case. Take a look at this video for instance, which shows users of both an iPhone and a Motorola Droid (powered by Android) playing the same game against each other wirelessly; take note Jobs, you killjoy. It’s almost enough to make us play Ebony and Ivory, but we won’t, ‘cos it’s cack.
