Though some love has recently been lost over the past few years, Google’s brass still admire Steve Jobs
In comments made at last night’s Time Person of the Year Panel, Google’s VP of Location Marissa Mayer lavished praise on Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs and his role in Silicon Valley and American entrepreneurialism.
Google’s founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page have never tried to hide their adulation of Jobs either. They even actively recruited him for the role of CEO of Google (GOOG), according to a Bloomberg documentary.
The voting for Person of the Year is now open, however the winner isn’t selected by voters.
