Is Google Getting All Passive-Aggressive Up In Steve Jobs' Grill?

Steve Jobs has been called many things – a visionary, a criminal, an entrepreneur extra-ordinary, and Santa Claus.

But it appears Google Autocomplete has something to say about Jobs, too. Typing ‘Steve Jobs is’ into Google’s search field will net the curious viewer some equally curious commentary about Apple’s CEO before even slamming the search button, attacking and insulting Jobs from all angles, including race, religion, and… punctuality? Heavens, no!

While it’s every bit as likely that these are just the honest-to-goodness most oft-aggregated search terms, it’s interesting nonetheless, considering the rivalry between the two titanic companies. So, uh, Google… you got, um… you got something to say about your biggest rival’s CEO? Maybe? Then again, all passive-aggression aside, perhaps it’s all in good fun – the first result, ‘Steve Jobs is your new bicycle’, leads to an absurd random Steve Jobs fact generator.

After all, true best friends playfully insult each other all the time, right?

Maybe I need new friends.

    This has nothing to do with google, doing the same thing on bing shows:
    steve jobs is evil
    steve jobs is dead
    steve jobs is dying
    steve jobs is the devil
    steve jobs is back

      Actually, it looks like Bing is attempting to provide the true story of how Jobs turned in his soul sometime in the mid-90s for control of the technological world.

      Steve Jobs is evil. Steve Jobs is dying. Steve Jobs is dead. Steve Jobs is the devil.

      Steve Jobs is back.

    Try Bill Gates, Google is slightly forgiving on him. And certainly Eric Schmidt – nothing against his name though. ;-)
