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.

Yes Apple also played a huge part in killing JavaME. But having a Java-like environment that was good and free didn't help keep JavaME afloat.

There is no single redeeming feature of Java ME whatsoever.

Even if Android was all Qt, Java ME would be dead.

+100 if I could...

I dabbled in JavaME back in the day - both "naked" and the "extended" version that Blackberry called their API...

It was horsesh*t, there really isn't a nice way to put it. Compared to to Cocoa Touch or the Android SDK it was like programming in QuickBasic. Horrible...
