Eric Schmidt: Apple and Google are Like Competing Countries, Not Kids With GunsIn an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Eric Schmidt was quizzed about the relationship between Apple and Google, among other things. His take? They’re like countries trying to get along politically—not teenagers brandishing guns at each other. Right.

In response to the question “How has Google’s relationship with Apple changed in the past year?”, Schmidt answered:

His view is, arguably, idealistic. Managing relations between two companies like Apple and Google might feel like running a country—but often time to outside observers, things certainly can look a little childish. Elsewhere, Schmidt talks about the success of Windows 8 (he’s not used it!), keeping Samsung on-side, his take on patent litigation and a future in government. It’s well worth a read.
