Steve Jobs’ Epic 5-Minute Anti-Google Rant

Apple had a blowout quarter on sales of iPhones and iPads when they reported after the bell. Steve Jobs went absolutely ballistic on Google during the conference call. His message: "We think Android is very, very fragmented and becoming more fragmented by the day. And as you know, Apple strives for the integrated model so the user isn’t forced to be the systems integrator." Wow. The gloves are off.

Have a listen (hat tip Paul Kedrosky).
