Apple and Google have been embroiled in a lot of indirect warfare. With Apple assaulting multiple Android vendors and Google implicitly backing its Android partners, the relationship between the two companies are certainly not amicable. However, Google’s Eric Schmidt downplays the mutual differences of the two.

Recently, the infighting between Google and Apple took a rather serious turn when Apple decided to toss YouTube out of its iOS ecosystem. The move certainly hurt Google but the search giant was quickly able to recover by dishing out an excellent YouTube app for iOS devices.

Apple launched yet another offensive when it decided to ditch Google Maps in iOS devices and replace them with its own Maps app. The decision clearly showed that things between the two entities have soured up quite a bit. But despite indirect expressions of dismay, Google didn’t directly take on Apple for this decision.

Whereas on the surface, the two companies may be led by cool, calm-headed individuals – Larry Page at Google and Tim Cook at Apple – the fact remains that their respective companies have no love lost for each other. However, Eric Schmidt states in a recent interview that things aren’t that serious between the duo.

According to him, “The adult way to run a business is to run it more like a country. They have disputes, yet they’ve actually been able to have huge trade with each other. They’re not sending bombs at each other.” In a way, that is true. Despite their disagreements, the two companies have to continue collaborations on a number of things.
