A Reader notes, Steven Levy’s latest book, ‘In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes Our Lives,’ lifts the lid on the secretive world of Google, revealing how the founders fell out with Apple’s Steve Jobs and what happened in the search engine’s exit from China. Levy claims that when Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page were on the hunt for a chief executive they wanted Steve Jobs to take the job. Obviously, he didn’t, and later the two companies became fierce rivals rather than allies.
