Netgear Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Lo was speaking about Apple's closed ecosystem and the ego of Steve Jobs, mentioning that at a lunch in Sydney Australia, Patrick Lo asked the future of Apple's closed system. 'Once Steve Jobs goes away, which is probably not far away, then Apple will have to make a strategic decision on whether to open up the platform. Ultimately a closed system just can't go that far … If they continue to close it and let Android continue to creep up then it's pretty difficult as I see it.' In addition, Netgear CEO went on to criticize Steve Jobs over his thoughts on Flash, as well: 'What's the reason for him to trash Flash? There's no reason other than ego.' On the question to CEO whether hw had spoken to Jobs over his concerns Lo replied that 'Steve Jobs doesn't give me a minute!' By the way, Lo did not stop with Apple. Additionally, he said that 'Microsoft had fallen too far behind with the Windows Phone 7 platform' and that now the game is over.
