Being a leader of a company is not an easy task at all. First of all, you would need to know how to lead, and more often than not that is done by example. Another thing is, every single thing that you do would most probably be scrutinized by those who are below you, and when it comes to Alphabet executive chairman Eric Schmidt, it seems that he does own an iPhone handset as he admitted so.
Alphabet happens to be Google’s parent company just in case you were living under a rock for the past few years. All the way back in 2009, Schmidt seen snapping photos using a BlackBerry, but that was months before Android 2.0 was revealed with the Motorola DROID in tow. Well, at the Startup Fest in Amsterdam yesterday, Schmidt did inform the audience that apart from using his Samsung Galaxy S7, he too, owns an Apple iPhone 6s.
It does make sense actually, since Schmidt can then know and have a better idea on what the competition is up to, not to mention how Google does have a range of iOS apps which Schmidt can monitor from time to time. When asked which of the two devices are better, Schmidt diplomatically replied, “Samsung S7 is better. It has a better battery. And those of you who are iPhone users (know) I’m right.” Do you agree with him?
