今日科技:谷歌前首席执行官为何“搞砸了”

JP Mangalindan 2011年06月03日


谷歌公司(Google)前任首席执行官艾里克•施密特(Eric Schmidt)

    “当时我很清楚,自己应该有所作为。但不幸的是,我没做到。首席执行官应该勇于承担责任,但我把事情搞砸了。”—董事长艾里克•施密特谈谷歌的社交功能引发的风波 [数字化大会(All Things D)]

    * 谷歌公司(Google)前首席执行官、现任董事会主席艾里克•施密特(Eric Schmidt)出席了周二晚上举行的D9数字化大会(All Things D's D9 conference)。其发言涉及很多话题,其中包括:谷歌为在其现有服务中融入社交因素而付诸的一系列努力;如今成长最为迅速的四家IT公司(施密特戏称为“四人帮”)——亚马逊(Amazon)、苹果(Apple)、Facebook、当然还有谷歌;此外,他甚至老话重提,对IT业老掉牙的争论:Mac系统与PC机孰优孰劣的问题进行了探讨。当论及系统安全时,他说:“应该用Mac系统,而不是PC机。”原因在于病毒不太可能攻击Mac用户。此外,他还建议,Mac机用户搭载谷歌浏览器(Google Chrome),再加上Gmail的两步验证特性,那简直就是绝佳组合了。[《下一代网络》(The Next Web)]

    * 今年的苹果全球开发人员大会(Worldwide Developer's Conference ,WWDC)将于下周一举行。该公司计划届时进行一系列闪电发布:不仅推出iOS 5移动操作系统和狮王(Lion)台式机软件的升级版,还有引起市场广泛猜测的基于云计算技术的音乐服务iCloud。其中大部分内容由史蒂夫•乔布斯(Steve Jobs)本人亲自宣布。(This is my next)

    * During his appearance at All Things D's D9 conference last night, former Google CEO and current chairman Eric Schmidt covered a number of topics including the company's attempts at integrating social elements into its services, the fastest-growing technology companies -- Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and of course, Google -- which he dubbed the "Gang of Four," and even that age-old technology argument: Macs versus PCs. When it comes to security, "you could use a Mac instead of a PC," he said, arguing that viruses are less likely to affect Mac users. He also recommended pairing that Mac with Google's Chrome Browser and Gmail's two-step authentication feature. (The Next Web)

    * Apple's planning a blitzkrieg of announcements at this year's Worldwide Developer's Conference (WWDC) on Monday, including the proper unveiling of its iOS 5 mobile operating system and Lion desktop software update, as well as its much-speculated about iCloud cloud-based music service, most of which will likely be discussed by Steve Jobs himself.
