谷歌新员工写博客大批苹果公司

尽管谷歌(Google Inc.)与苹果(Apple Inc.)之间苗头初露的敌对关系基本上是通过法律和监管渠道处理的,双方少有恶语相对,但互联网巨头谷歌新聘的人员之一却丝毫不羞于表达自己的不满。

While Google Inc.'s budding rivalry with Apple Inc. has largely been a tight-lipped affair managed through legal and regulatory channels, one of the Internet giant's newest hires isn't being shy about airing grievances.

布雷(Tim Bray)曾在Sun电子计算机公司(Sun Microsystems Inc.,又名:升阳电脑)担任软件开发员。周一,他说自己最近作为“开发员维权者”受聘于谷歌,将专注于公司的Android操作系统。他马上开始贬低苹果对手机市场的眼光和iPhone战略。

Tim Bray, a software developer employed until recently at Sun Microsystems Inc., said Monday he has joined Google as a 'developer advocate' with a focus on the company's Android operating system. And he wasted no time decrying Apple's vision of the cellphone market and strategy for the iPhone.

布雷在个人网站上写道,它是一个高 内的、迪士尼化的贫瘠花园,被伶牙俐齿的律师包围着;我讨厌它。

'It's a sterile Disney-fied walled garden surrounded by sharp-toothed lawyers,' Mr. Bray wrote on his personal Web site. 'I hate it.'

苹果发言人没有回复记者的置评请求。

An Apple spokesman didn't respond to a request for comment.

苹果最近对宏达国际电子股份有限公司(HTC Corp.)提起专利诉讼。宏达国际是一家知名手机生产商,使用的是谷歌Android手机操作系统。

Apple recently filed a patent lawsuit against HTC Corp., a prominent maker of phones that support Google's Android mobile software.

布雷指出,他不打算在博文发表之前让谷歌对内容进行任何修改。不过他也写道,谷歌看了他有关苹果和iPhone博文的草稿,不过“没有提出任何修改意见”。

Mr. Bray noted that he doesn't intend for Google to vet anything on his blog before it publishes. However, he also wrote that Google saw an advanced draft of his post about Apple and the iPhone, 'but didn't suggest any changes.'
