In recent interview with CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo, Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt spoke out about his biggest concerns. Most pressing issue is the possible merger of Microsoft and Yahoo – which could happen as early as next week. Then there’s the problem of how to make money off YouTube – which is costing the company millions a year in hosting costs.
First, the tale of good (Google) and evil (Microsoft) and the fight over struggling Yahoo. In the interview, Schmidt talks up Yahoo’s strengths and warns about Microsoft’s evilness.
- Microsoft can’t be trusted. They have a history of antitrust issues. They take away freedom of choice and that’s the very essence of evil.
- Google likes Yahoo and Yahoo likes Google. There are mutual benefits. Together they can combine to fight against the evil forces of Microsoft.
