Steve Jobs warned Larry Page Google (GOOG) is turning into another Microsoft (MSFT): an unfocused giant whose resources get wasted on also-ran products.

    If one were to read the Rosoff article he would agree that Google is turning into a Microsoft and that its a GOOD thing for Google. SA seems to be comparing apples to oranges here in articles.

    Android alone makes Google a serious contender to the iPhone. Jobs was trying his best to dirty the public image of Google by comparing them to Microsoft. Let the product sales speak for themselves.

    It's time for MSFT to, perhaps, break down its company to a various, more manageable and more creative components.
