Future of Apple: Google CEO Larry Page Discusses Apple, The Future

Larry PageFuture of Apple: It is common for CEO’s of large multi-national corporations to keep quiet for long periods of time. There is no doubt that Larry Page, CEO of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), subscribes to this school of thought.

Page recently broke his silence in a Fortune Exclusive article published on CNN Money online.

While Page discussed a variety of topics, none were more intriguing than his thoughts on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Despite the fact that many CEO’s keep their lips closed on matters of the competition, Page broke out of his shell just a bit during the interview.

When asked about competition among the biggest tech companies, including his very own Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), he gave an answer that will surprise most people.

“I actually view that as a shame when you think about it that way. All the big technology companies are big because they did something great. I’d like to see more cooperation on the user side. The Internet was made in universities and it was designed to interoperate. And as we’ve commercialized it, we’ve added more of an island-like approach to it, which I think is a somewhat a shame for users.”

Maybe this is why Google and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) decided to partner on a deal to purchase Eastman Kodak’s patents out of bankruptcy for a reported $500 million?

But Page wasn’t done discussing how he views the competition:

“Obviously we think about competition to some extent. But I feel my job is mostly getting people not to think about our competition. In general I think there’s a tendency for people to think about the things that exist. Our job is to think of the thing you haven’t thought of yet that you really need. And by definition, if our competitors knew that thing, they wouldn’t tell it to us or anybody else.”

As you can see, Page is well aware of the competition but is not focusing too much time and energy on trying to figure them out. Instead, he is looking forward – always trying to uncover the next big thing.

Investors often wonder what the future will bring. After all, there was a time when Yahoo and Research in Motion were top dogs. Here is a brief look at his vision for the future of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG):

“What does Google look like five years from now? What are we doing? Who’s doing it? How are we organized? What people do we have? And I think we have some answers to those questions. But I think, like I said, what I’m trying to do is to get a technology company that continues to scale its impact and aspirations in its everyday. We’re at a certain scale now, but I don’t see any particular reason why we shouldn’t be much bigger, more impactful than we are now.”

Wouldn’t it be nice to hear from well known CEO’s, such as Larry Page and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s Tim Cook (interview here), more often? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
