Google Google CEO Larry Page was interviewed on Charlie Rose recently, and there was certainly some interesting stuff in there. Sadly, the interview suffers from the curse of modern journalism in that it was all a bit timid and civil (no truly harsh and confronting questions), but despite that, it's still a good watch. Two quotes from Page really stood out to me.

Not Oracle, but sun was a major player in the mobile space. There is a reason why Sun wouldn't bless the apache harmony project as Java. Sun had licensed JavaME (Mobile Edition) to dumb phone makers. They have zero market now, due in no small part to google's actions. I totally understand why they *feel* like they've been screwed over. However they weren't in a legal sense.
