Larry and Sergey would play tricks on me. I’d say we’re not going to take on Microsoft. We’re not going to do a browser or OS. So they hired someone to improve the performance of Firefox.
6 months later, they showed me Chrome. Those a ss holes.
I knew they were going around me. So I told them, we can’t do an operating system. So they bought Android and told me it was just for smartphones. Maybe the lesson is that I’m just wrong all the time. But the secret is that you have to have judgment on when these things scale.
