Google chairman Eric Schmidt has mourned Steve Jobs' death but defended Google as a great innovator despite the Apple co-founder's allegations that the Internet search giant stole innovations from the iPhone.
Schmidt told reporters Tuesday that he is still "very sad and recovering from the sense of loss" from Jobs' death last month and therefore does not think it's right to comment on Jobs' words in Walter Issacson's biography.
The biography was released after Jobs' death and drips with vitriol as Jobs argues Google stole from Apple's iPhone to build many of the features in Google's Android software for rival phones.
Schmidt said most people would agree in general that Google is a great innovator.
