Irked by Google CEO Eric Schmidt's simplification of the difference between Google's Android operating system and Apple iOS as a case of an open ecosystem versus a closed platform, Apple CEO Steve Jobs ripped his main rival on the company's third-quarter earnings call Oct. 18.

EWEEK walks readers through Jobs' screed below, which is a retaliation to Schmidt's candid dismissal of iPhone and its App Store as a closed, proprietary platform that controls user choice.
