Microsoft Founder Paul Allen Says Google is Evil & Steve Jobs is Monomaniacal

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has had a pop at just about everyone in his new autobiography Idea Man but has singled out Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, as well as poorly Apple front man Steve jobs for particular abuse.

Allen, who is currently on the circuit plugging his tell-tale tome to anyone willing to listen, said Jobs was "Monomaniacal", described Brin and Page as "all elbows and claws" and said that Google's mantra of "don't be evil" was a joke, according to thinq_

Allen and Bill Gates 3.0 were once BFFs at school but the pair fell out when the ex-Microsoft top man teamed up with corporate heavyweight Steve Ballmer, who apparently bullied him out of his office.

Allen clung onto his Microsoft shares despite a desperate buy-out attempt from Gates and his cronies, and they are now estimated to be worth around $13 billion.
