Larry Page ignored Steve Jobs’s deathbed advice

Larry Page ignored Steve Jobs’s deathbed advice, and Google is doing great - The Next Web: "Shortly after Larry Page re-took the reigns as CEO of Google in April 2011, many looked upon his re-organization of the company and sun-setting of fringe products as proof that he was heeding Steve Job’s death-bed advice to bring more focus to the company. As Page comes closer to his 2nd year at the helm of one of the world’s most innovative companies, it appears that ignoring those exact words may prove to be the key to Google pulling away from Apple in the battle of internet titans."

Steve Jobs wanted Google to NOT pursue mobile phones (android) and just leave the market to Apple.
