Netgear-chef undskylder angreb

Netgears chef kritiserede forleden Apple og Steve Jobs, men nu fortryder han ordvalget.

Netgears CEO Patrick Lo kritiserede i sidste uge Steve Jobs og Apple for at være for lukkede. Det skete under en frokost i Sydney.

I kampens hede fik Lo formuleret sig en kende mere skarpt end han åbenbart ville, for nu siger han undskyld.

Årsagen til at han i dag undskylder er den skjulte kritik der lå i flere af udtalelserne om Apple og Steve Jobs, der er på sygeorlov.

Lo sagde blandt andet: “Once Steve Jobs goes away, which is probably not far away, then Apple will have to make a strategic decision on whether to open up the platform”.

Derudover konkluderede Lo at Apples fravalg af Flash til iPhone udelukkende handlede om Steve Jobs ego.

I dag skriver Lo blandt andet:

“I deeply regret the choice of words I used in relation to business decisions Apple must grapple with in the future in relation to open vs. closed systems, which have been construed by some to be references to Steve Jobs’ health and which was never my intention. I sincerely apologize that what I said was interpreted this way, and I wish Steve only the very best.”
