Nobody would expect that the famous and late Steve Jobs, Apple’s driving force for over a decade whose direction made them the world’s most valuable company, was a key contributor to Google’s Google Plus “social networking” website, but it’s true.

Google and Apple have an interesting recent history. It all started when then-Google CEO and Apple board member Eric Schmidt had to step down from his influential position from Apple due to conflicts of interest: Apple had the iPhone while Google had Android, so the CEO of one should not be allowed to call the shots for the other.
