  1. @ Sanity: I feel that the I-phone hype is a great campaign to confuse and stress out competitors..behind the scenes they might work on secret really breakthru technologies. I remember being surveyed about the I-phone in Q 3 or Q 4 last year.Back then it really sounded like a killer toy. Gotta admit I´d buy one though(maybe for the good looks only ;-)..luv big displays in a way.. ).
    Cheers

  4. @10. A percentage of that 500$ goes to the factory worker in China, and he/she buys a meal with it.

    One empty stomach less – one of the world’s problems solved.

  6. To the guy who was complaining about how the video was more than 10 minutes, all you need to do is become a director on youtube. I’m sure that you have seen the little gray bar at the top that says director. It’s not the google has special rights.

  8. Poverty is a relative condition.
    So the only sure way to eliminate it is for ALL wealth to be eliminated. (Even a slight amount more than your neighbor would make you, relatively, “wealthy”.)

    So I call on all of you “relatively” wealthy as well as truly wealthy people to go out and destroy all your wealth. $$, homes, cars etc. You can’t give it away as that would just cause someone else to be – relatively – wealthy, not eliminate “poverty”.
    I call on you.
    Do it now!
    Go on, I’m waiting!

    You go first! :)

  10. Jon Bell: It’s called people being haters. They want an iPhone and they don’t have one…but Eric does…but Eric is Rich…and they are not…

    They hater complex continues. If Google was a small company this would be considered cool that he would get an iPhone from a big company like Apply.

    Now on the other hand now that Google is international and so big it’s scary the fact he has an iPhone makes people think he is apart of some special group.

    Or maybe I am insane?

  12. “So wait a second…so Eric Schmidt is a conference to talk about solving the worlds problems with money, and he pulls out a $500 phone….and no one sees a problem with this?””

    What a dumb comment, especially considering he probably got the phone for free.

  14. More than that, Comic Strip Blogger! WAY MORE! Why in the hell I had to listened the first 5min most boring ever introduction from i-dont-even-know-who???? Oh my gosh! Why do you people have the privilege of uploading a 30min video if you’re going to make that?????

    SHAME!

    I’m going to buy my yahoo! papers back.

    The only problem I see is a snarky comment by you that suggest he shouldn’t be able to use the tools he feels necessary to accomplish his goals. You want him to show up at the conference on a horse dressed in a burlap sack? Give us all a break dude.

    Interesting video

    No. No problem.

    So then Bill Gates isn’t allowed to address poverty since he’s using a multi-billion dollar company to achieve his aims? Rich people aren’t allowed to use expensive technology to help the world’s poor?

    I don’t understand.

  20. So does this mean Al Gore has one too… in addition to those three cinema displays? Sure beats running for president – getting cool Apple gear…

  24. Eric in this video says Google fixes a problem when they become aware of it. That is untrue based on my personal experience.

    I handed him my card at SES San Jose last August and told him of problems with Google’s dysfunctional recruiting process for a role even though I had numerous internal referrals from people stating that I’d make a great Google employee. He seemed completely unaware of how severe this problem is and how it damages Google’s brand.

    He stated that someone would get back to me and asked me to also give my card to his publicist – Eric told me that one of them would get back to me in a week or so. I’m still waiting to hear from them.

    Considering they are still using temporary Resume Screeners who know nothing about search or understanding relevant competencies or educational backgrounds – I’d say they not only didn’t contact me, but also forgot all about it.

    P.S. The interviewer refers to part of this video as “being on the record”. I recall this language creating a stir in another Google incident recently?

  26. Robert: nowadays directors or guru’s license on YouTube is not enough – I reckon that 10 minutes is reserved for certain companies + for people who had directors account before general 10 minutes limit was introduced:

    We’re no longer offering the option to upload videos longer than 10 minutes, regardless of your account type. If you see a video on YouTube that’s longer than 10 minutes, it’s probably owned by one of our content partners. There are also some users who can upload longer videos because they were given this permission before the feature was removed.

  28. This is so unfair that some people – like above video of length 32 minutes – can publish videos longer than 10 minutes on YouTube but all others, myself included, are allowed only 10 minutes! This sucks and proves that “do no evil” of Google is a LIE!
