Top 15 Of Eric Schmidt’s Remarkable Quotes
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes, 51 seconds
Mr Eric Schmidt, now former CEO of Google, is making a habit out of getting quotes into the media which are to say the least ‘interesting’. In some cases they are plain stupid, in other cases remarkable and sometimes predictable.
One ‘slip of the tongue” on CNN, “Streetview the cars we drive only once, you can just move, right?” was corrected by the pr-department of Google who had Schmidt say he “misspoked”. But this surely wasn’t the only ‘mistake’ by Schmidt. Its interesting (and fun) to look back at some quotes of Schmidt in the past year to see how many times he has now said “something remarkable”.
