If I go 2 weeks without a good, Apple vs. Google story I feel like I am not doing my job. This week, Google's CEO Eric Schmidt fired back at Apple's claims of being "more secure". Eric Schmidt made a pretty good quote on the subject:
“Someone didn’t brief him correctly on Google’s policies,” Schmidt quipped. “It’s unfortunate for him. In the first place, in Google’s case, we have always been the leader in security and encryption. Our systems are far more secure and encrypted than anyone else, including Apple. They’re catching up, which is great.”
I doubt we are going to hear anything back from Apple for a bit on this one.... BGR has the full story.
