nullGoogle’s Larry Page recently had a meeting with onetime movie mogul, Barry Diller.

While they were talking Larry started typing on his phone (not an iPhone I’m guessing) Diller became so annoyed the following conversation ensued:

“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.

Ouch…

And yes, that is Larry too in that photo, apparently distracted by Lucy Southworth on a private jet on their way to Hawaii. How rude to make out with a hot girl, on a jet, and ignore the photographer. Tsk.
