Google is the Microsoft of cell phones.

Except they are stealing from more than just Apple.

Palm and HP are sure to have some issues with this.

If Palm was smart they made him sign a non-compete clause.

And if he were smart, he refused.

It's pretty standard in the tech industry.

I think when person quits a company they should be free to do anything! What NBC did to Conan was a bunch of !!BS!! He should be free to be on tv, it shouldn't be NBCs place to tell anybody they can't be on another network til a certain time, NBC can only tell someone they can't be on their network!!!

Well I think it does stink what NBC did to Conan, but it's not like Conan just quit- they paid him a hefty termination fee, and that was part of the stipulation.

But the reason non-compete clauses exist is to keep individuals from getting poached when they're working on vital projects to your company.

I couldn't see them not having a no compete clause, but if he's going to Google there must have been some loophole or fine print that let him out of it.
