(CBS News) Larry Ellison, America’s third richest man and the CEO of tech giant Oracle, took aim at Google in a wide-ranging interview with Charlie Rose, calling out Google CEO Larry Page “specifically” for overseeing Google’s decision to “take our [Oracle’s] stuff” …
Ellison clarified that Page — who is known for his personal slogan, “Don’t Be Evil” — “slipped up this one time” and said it was it was his actions, not necessarily Page himself, that were evil.
“The idea was that we don’t quite know what evil is, but if we have a rule that says don’t be evil, then employees can say, I think that’s evil,” Schmidt said. “Now, when I showed up, I thought this was the stupidest rule ever, …”
“Evil,” says Google CEO Eric Schmidt, “is what Sergey says is evil.”
