There is a report on Steven Levy's book, "In the Plex". The coverage by Richard Hartley-Parkinson is at Mail Online.

It says that at one time Sergey Brin and Larry Page wanted Steve Jobs as CEO.

It also says that when Eric Schmidt was a member of Apple's board of directors, the iPad was kept secret from him.

"Mr Schmidt had wanted to stay in the country [China] but he was outvoted and it is believed that the decision had 'long-lasting implications for Schmidt's relationship with the founders'."

There is another report by Wilfried F. Voss at FrogenYozurt.

slashdot coverage:

This book is not to be confused with "Life in the 'Plex" by Philipp Lenssen.
