Google's Larry Page gives us a lesson in mobile phone faux pas by ignoring poor onetime movie mogul, Barry Diller, for a PDA. Actually, he doesn't just ignore the man, he flat-out lets him know that the gadget is more important.
While in a meeting with the Google boys, Diller had this exchange after questioning Page's inattentiveness:
"I said to Larry, ‘Is this boring?' "
"No. I'm interested. I always do this," Page said.
"Well, you can't do this," Diller said. "Choose."
"I'll do this," Page said matter-of-factly, not lifting his eyes from his handheld device.
