拉里•佩奇吐槽甲骨文为何无力

拉里•佩奇吐槽甲骨文为何无力

Verne Kopytoff 2013年05月20日
谷歌CEO谴责了充斥于科技行业的各种负面消息。但糟糕的是谷歌的高管们长期以来一直有抹黑竞争对手的历史,苹果和甲骨文就是两大“沙袋”。

    古多塔说:“如果谷歌不行动的话,我们将面临严峻的未来,到时候只有一个人、一款设备、一家供应商可供挑选。所以如果你相信开源,如果你相信选择的力量,如果你相信每个人的创新,那么欢迎使用安卓。”为了把话题引到自家产品身上,他还展示了一份幻灯片,里面提到了乔治•奥威尔的小说《1984》,旁边还写着一句话:“这不是我们想要的未来”。谷歌的“统战宣言”显然获得了很好的反响。

    今年年初,拉里•佩奇在接受《连线》杂志(Wired)采访时谈到了Facebook,这次采访又成了人们的另一次谈资。当然他在谈到Facebook的过程中,也不失时机地表示谷歌也要建立一个出色的社交网络与Facebook竞争。在承认了Facebook的实力后,拉里•佩奇有些轻蔑甚至夸张地说:“他们在产品上做得很差。”Facebook的创始人马克•扎克伯格并未针对佩奇的批评进行反击。

    佩奇之所以对甲骨文表示失望,是因为两家公司刚刚打完了一个漫长的专利官司,甲骨文状告谷歌侵犯了它的Java软件专利。佩奇表示,这种官司会扼杀创新。在台上公开抱怨甲骨文也是需要勇气的,可以说甲骨文手中握着整个科技产业的“兼容性的王冠”——而且甲骨文的CEO拉里•艾里森历来喜欢跟竞争对手打官司然后嘲笑他们。佩奇表示:“我们想和甲骨文建立合作关系,但这看起来不可能。”(财富中文网)

    "If Google did not act, we faced a draconian future -- a future where one man, one company, one device, one carrier would be our only choice," Gundotra said. "So if you believe in openness, if you believe in choice, if you believe in innovation from everyone, then welcome to Android." To hammer the point home, he flashed a slide referencing George Orwell's 1984 alongside the phrase "not the future we want." Google's let's-all-get-along edict apparently had the day off.

    Page's aversion to negativity took another holiday earlier this year during an interview with Wiredmagazine in which he talked about Facebook (FB). His perspective is, of course, colored by Google's efforts to build a credible social network competitor. After acknowledging Facebook's strength, Page dismissively and perhaps hyperbolically said, "They're also doing a really bad job on their products." Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's founder, seems to have weathered the criticism just fine.

    Page's frustration with Oracle follows a lengthy patent dispute between the two companies. Lawsuits, like the one Oracle filed over the use of Java software, stifle innovation, he said. In complaining about Oracle on stage, Page took on a company that arguably owns the tech industry's crown for combativeness. Larry Ellison, Oracle's chief executive, has a history of filing lawsuits against rivals and then ridiculing them. "We'd like to have a cooperative relationship with Oracle," Page said. "It doesn't seem possible."
