Overheard in The Green(e) Room: Eric Schmidt, Steve Jobs And Davos


CEO of a large entertainment company—Just call him "MAX"—in business class, en route to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, tells me "I think Eric Schmidt will be Apple's next CEO.

Makes total sense. Maybe that's why he and Jobs had coffee together a few months back."

Satisfied with his prediction, he proceeds to sink into his seat, and pull out his binder of research "in preparation for my forum." What, no movie during the flight?
"Oh, no, that screen is way to small. You need a MUCH bigger screen."
