I think that's a very nice thing Google is doing. To anyone speaking against Google's decision: it is just a phone, and Jobs was just a man. However, you must remember Jobs was the man, an industry titan and visionary for as long as personal computers have existed!

Besides: The phone isn't delayed.

Don't worry, there's a great amount of morons within OCN who think Steve Jobs did nothing, had zero impact on anything, and was just a marketing man.

You're in the right. He was the Henry Ford of our generation, no doubt. Not a God, not like Einstein, but nonetheless important to the development of PCs and mobile technology.

I respect Google for their decision.

I don't think Google has done this on humanitarian grounds, its more of an informed business decision.
But still it's the thought that counts.

post #47 of 121
as said above

and though I detest the products that Apple pushed out
clearly the driving force behind those products; Steve Jobs influenced alot of electronics we use each day now

ie. the ultrabooks vs MBA
Android Tabs vs iPad
Android Phones vs iPhone

etc etc
post #48 of 121
Am I the only one that thinks this is a bogus excuse? While I'm sure google and Samsung respect Jobs, they just didn't want their Nexus debut overshadowed by news coverage of him, iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S. I don't think it's about respect, it's about media attention and google and Samsung need as much as they can get. Just my two cents.

So true - Jobs and his crew were doing stuff that other's had ignored. Other makers simply skipped on stuff, like small computers for the home because they were fixated on raking in huge profits by selling giant computers to banks.

I don't think he came out with anything that was spanking new, but brought out the right combination with the right features. Like others has MP3 players - but only Jobs came out with a machine that could play real, high quality audio because he wasn't fixated on low quality, massively compressed MP3 garbage - but supported real formats that were CD quality.

The MBA was an unique machine because, even with it's massive weakness (weak processor, incapable graphics, lack of usable expansion and worthless ports) - it did turn people onto the fact that for ultramobile, one did not need optical drives and a massive, energy gobbling, heat spewing think lump of garbage that weighted ten tons like the IBM ThinkPad. It also came about because even though WiFi had been around in industry - Jobs was the first to offer it in a machine, and Airport was a slow seller only because people were slow to respond - but now, I can't imagine a maker trying to peddle a portable machine that doesn't have WiFi.

So one can say that certain Apple products are deficieint, for whatever reason (like weak keyboards or low quality mice or cell phones that are overstuffed with low quality gizmos or other weaknesses) - but they do come out with those combinations that capture people's imaginations and lead to other products.

It's like the iPad - which in my opinion is a lump of trash because it has the weakness of a sub 10" screen, proprietary ports and weak OS that is dependent upon Apps downloaded from a proprietary web site - but then, the tablet format drives not only the mobile computing industry (like when Samsung comes out with theirs that overcomes the main deficiency of the iPad by having a real 10" screen) - but also in other devices, like in medicine where the tablet format for patient monitoring and for imaging is starting to emerge because the format itself is convenient.

Google is finding it convenient to hide behind this excuse, because their product is not ready for prime time yet - it was only a day in which they were going to announce a day when they were going to make an announcement - not one device is ready and in stores anywhere - and no providers are ready at all except in the minds of marketing, where they are thinking about getting a chunk of paper to design a proposal for a poster for the stores that do not have the product.
