The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs: It's not a phone, it's an alliance

Read the full post (warning: FSJ is into crude mode over the last couple days...)

So I know Google's stock is popping and everyone thinks they're absolutely on fire but let me tell you something. We're not scared about this Google phone platform. Simple reason. Alliances don't work. They never do. The Open Handset Alliance is a joke. But it's classic Google. Announce some big piece of unfinished stuff that may or may not ever be this or that or whatever. Get loads of other idiots on board to say they're going to support this big piece of mish-mash code or platform or apps or whatever. Right now they're all pretending to go along because what the hell they get their names into the press release as being associated with Google and who cares if anything ever comes of it? It's called releaseware. Do you really think all those other companies are really going to come out with anything? You really think they're just dying to help Google come into their market and scoop up all the money for itself?
