President Barack Obama met yesterday with two ascendant Silicon Valley powers: Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Google VP Marissa Mayer.
With Jobs, Obama discussed American competitiveness and education, according to Reuters.
Obama had good timing for catching people on the upswing.
Mayer--who is vice president of geographic and local services--isn't running Google, but she's a step closer with her promotion to Google's Operating Committee earlier this month. And like Apple, Google just reported its own strong quarter with a profit of $2.17 billion.
