Jobs’ biographer: Google more innovative than Apple

Steve Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson said in a CNBC interview that “the greatest innovation in the world today right now is coming from Google.” While Isaacson called Apple’s China Mobile agreement “a big deal,” he said Google’s acquisition of Nest was more important, saying, “I think this shows an amazingly strong, integrated strategy that Google has to connect all of our devices, all of our lives….”

As for what might be coming next from Apple, Isaacson said, “I think Steve Jobs would have wanted as the next disruptive thing, to either have wearable-like watches or TV ... or disrupt the digital camera industry or disrupt textbooks or something. Steve Jobs was a disruptor.” Cook will need to disrupt as well, Isaacson said. “We ought to see, in 2014, Apple do something huge.”
