Google and Apple: Top Google Official Talks about Apple

Google and Apple: Michael T. Jones, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s technology ambassador, recently sat down with Australian Broadcasting Corporation to film a segment for its well known show “One Plus One.” During his time on the show, Jones talked about a variety of topics including online privacy and the use of mapping apps. Of course, both of these topics gave him the opportunity to bring Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) into the conversation.

Google Inc (GOOG)Over the past few years, privacy has been a major concern for both Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). This is something that the tech giants take seriously, despite the fact that they have not always performed as such in the past.

When talking about privacy concerns, it is nice to see Jones giving Apple some respect. Here is what he had to say:

“I certainly trust Apple, and I trust Google, and I trust Microsoft, for that matter. These are not corrupt organizations; these are nice people trying to serve you. In the case of Google, everyone does it voluntarily. You do a search, you could have gone to somebody else; you came to us. If you thought we might betray you, you wouldn’t come to us. So we stand to lose $30 billion or more the moment people lose trust in us.”

Of course, there is no way a Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) official like Jones was going to make it through the entire conversation without taking a dig at Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

“I think you should be worried about getting where you want to go if you use Apple Maps. If you want to be honest, you’re taking your life in your own hands there.”

Of course, he was referring to reports last year that motorists in Victoria, Australia using Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app were being taken into a remote national park due to an error with the app.

If you take the time to watch the entire interview with Michael T. Jones, be sure to stop back to let us know what you think. There are plenty of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) mentions.
