+ - U.S. D.O.J. implicates Apple, Google, Intel, and others, in no-hire consipracy->

SpzToid writes: Emails to and from the late Steve Jobs may show that several tech companies adopted a "no-hire" policy in which they agreed not to recruit one another's top talent.

The emails were made public Tuesday by a United States federal judge presiding over a lawsuit filed by tech workers against several Silicon Valley tech companies, including Apple, Google and Intel.

"I'm sure you realize the asymmetry in the financial resources of our respective companies," Jobs says in the email.

In another email that seems to be related to "no-hire" policies, Google's then-CEO Eric Schmidt told another Google employee to communicate orally rather than in writing because "I don't want to create a paper trail over which we can be sued later."

Just nice people doing 'nice' things to others, less fortunate and trying compete. /rant
