Google Translates Steve Jobs Out Of The Picture

by Scrvpvlvs
Sep 8, 2010 7:00 AM–Google Translate omits Steve Jobs from its English translation of a Danish cartoon. The Danish text mentions Jobs, chairman and CEO of Apple Inc., along with Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft Corporation, and Mark Zuckerberg, president and CEO of Facebook, Inc. The English translation omits Jobs, but not Gates or Zuckerberg.

The original Danish cartoon includes the text: “iPhone med personlige numre til Bill Gates, Steve Jobs og Mark Zuckerberg”. In Google’s English translation, the text becomes: “iPhone with personal numbers to Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg”.

Many Apple products compete directly with Google, Microsoft, and Facebook products. Competing products include hardware and operating systems for desktop and handheld devices, games, and social networking, music distribution, and TV services.

Apple recently announced iTunes Ping, a social networking which competes with Facebook, and Apple Game Center, a new portable game application which competes with Microsoft’s Xbox Live. Apple and Google have recently announced competing TV services.
