Google criticises Apple?s vision

Google’s vice president of engineering Vic Gundotra has slammed Apple’s business model at this year’s Google I/O conference.

In a keynote address, Gundotra recounted a conversation between himself and Android creator Andy Rubin, whereby Rubin warned that “if Google did not act, we faced a draconian future, a future where one man, one company, one carrier would be our only choice.”

Accompanying his words was a 1984-style image that was a clear reference to Apple’s famous ‘1984’ advert, which features a pneumatic blond athlete destroying Big Brother.
