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.

I wonder if an ever deeper alliance with Apple might have been a better bet, but I understand that maybe Google thought it too risky because a rampant and dominant Apple might have screwed them eventually. Tough call.

Apple has a history of sidelining successful developers in its community (although they tend to be smaller scale than google), by taking their products and integrating a (better) clone.

And MS was completely out of the question, as they seemingly screwed over all their mobile partners by malice and by accident.
