Steve Jobs talks about the new products presented at Keynote, Google, Amazon

Steve Jobs, after his presentation yesterday at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, spoke for half an hour with several journalists commenting on the different products and services made public, in addition to calling Google attention for its software for Android mobile phones and giving a harsh review of Amazon for its book reader Kindle.n

nThe Cupertino company made over 100 MacBook Air designs to find the right format. Both he and his chief designer, Jonathan Ive, were not sure that they would be able to fit a computer into the designed format.

nIn fact, the MacBook Air is the flip side of everything Steve Jobs had said about laptops in the past, as he had always insisted that a laptop without all the features was “undesirable” at best.n

nSpeaking of Kindle, the book reader that Amazon recently launched, Steve considered it a mistake since “Americans have stopped reading“.n

n”No matter how good or bad the device is, the fact is that people no longer readSteve said. “40% of people in the United States read a book or less a year. The entire conception of the device is useless because people no longer read“.n

nCurrently I think Google has achieved its goal with Android and I think Android is going to do them more harm than good. It’s going to divide Google and the people who want to partner with them.

Equally skeptical was Steve Jobs of Google’s decision to develop software for smartphones. Google bought a startup company a few years ago called Android and now he’s putting the finishing touches on an operating system open source for mobile phones designed to compete with Mac OSX on the iPhone and Windows Mobile.n

n”Having to design a phone is much harder than it seemsJobs said. “We’ll see how good your software is and if consumers like it and adopt it“. Steve added that “Currently I think that Google has achieved its goal with Android and I think that Android is going to do more harm than good. It’s going to divide Google and the people who want to partner with them.“.n

nSteve also talked about Apple TV 2 and that the solution is “in the movies“, but indicated that they are not going to extend to the cable television market, since for Steve Jobs the market is too fractured and for Apple, the business model is similar to that of DVD.n

nJobs also had words for Bill Gates on his retirement from Microsoft: “Bill’s retirement from Microsoft is a big deal“, said, “It is a significant event and I think he should be honored for the contributions he has made.”.n
