Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Catfight! Get out your mobile phones and start filming, because two important personalities in the mobile world just got into a catfight. After the presentation of Apple's (once again) stellar quarterly results (what's with the low iPad sales, though?), Apple's CEO Steve Jobs went on a bit of a tangent regarding Android (among other things). Google's Andy Rubin, the father of Android, responded in a pretty fun way via Twitter.

You mean the tiny keyboard that's still got bigger "buttons" than most portrait format mechanical keyboard our there?


And kangaroos make for great electricity spaghetti whoop whoop diggidity jam joomba.

Classic Jobsian statement there - true, but entirely besides the point, so you can deflect from the obviousness of the argument. Apple claims that both a 3.5" as well as a 9.7" touch interface is possible - but then Jobs says you cannot do a touch interface on 7" because it's too small? Lolwut?

That was an idiotic statement, and a major fail on his part - like the TweetDeck comments which aren't sitting well with TweetDeck's CEO.
