In 2001, Page and Brin ended up finding and picking Eric Schmidt as their CEO, who couldn't be more different than Jobs. Schmidt apparently attended Burning Man, a hippie art festival held in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada. The duo liked this about Schmidt, according to the story.
This little tidbit of news comes soon after many criticisms of the current Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, leaving us wondering how the tech world would look like if Jobs was in his place.

Jobs reportedly felt betrayed by the announcement; Schmidt left Apple's board of directors in 2009.
