Woz: If I were at Apple, we'd be partners with Google

"So please mount the No. 42 bus with me to a world in which Tim Cook is still COO of Apple and Steve Wozniak is calling the shots.
Here's what would be happening: Apple and Google would be deep and loving partners and would share all their knowledge in one vast openfest."

|The irony is I've painted this as a Doomsday Scenario, though, in fairness, I will point out Wozniak is a lot more light hearted and well intentioned then Tim Cook is so if it happened under his control, it may not be as bad.|
Back to my point though (minus the caveat):
Google has always been really great at making really awesome back end technology but through and through; they have always and continue to suck at UI design interrupting what's easiest for the end user. It's not unfair to say (though not wholly accurate) that they are trying to preach an Ivy league philosophy to a bunch of kindergartners and forcing them to either figure it out or go away. The only thing that makes people stay is really the value of their products. For so many people, Google Products is like buying or having access to the entirety of the Encyclopedia Britannica but only ever using one section of one book ever.
Apple on the other hand has demonstrated over the years they know how to make things people want and how to make things easy to understand and easy to use but they have always, always, always lacked the ability to make exceedingly complex and powerful tools to compliment this.
The two companies are frankly a match made in heaven or hell depending on what they would do with said power if ever combined. They WOULD rule the world; that's irrefutable, but would it be for better or for worse?

Tim Cook is not an engineer, same with Jobs.
However, I would rather both exist independently and continue to compete because in the end, it's best for us: the consumers!
