    Steve Jobs Really Disliked Android and Google

    Steve Jobs Really Disliked Android and Google


    The much anticipated book about Steve Jobs’ life is set to be released this Monday. The book, which is simply titled “Steve Jobs”, was written by Walter Isaacson and is the only authorized biography about the Cupertino CEO.
    According to the AP (who received an early copy), the book provides insight into Jobs’ relationships with former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who resigned from Apple’s Board of Directors with the launch of Android.
    Isaacson wrote that Jobs was livid in January 2010 when HTC introduced an Android phone that boasted many of the popular features of the iPhone. Apple sued, and Jobs told Isaacson in an expletive-laced rant that Google’s actions amounted to “grand theft.”
    “I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,” Jobs said. “I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
    Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Google’s Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, California, cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasn’t interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.
    “I don’t want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.” The meeting, Isaacson wrote, resolved nothing.
    We all remember the picture of Schmidt and Jobs at a California cafe that Gizmodo captured back in 2010 – perhaps this meeting was not the civil one that we once thought. I personally pre-ordered the book and I am excited to learn about the private life of Mr. Jobs, and of course see what other swipes may have been taken against Android. Will anyone else be picking up a copy?

    Wait... he's pissed off at android for copying some of the iphone features, yet that's exactly what he does with iOS. Both systems continually copy the best of eachother.

    Steve Jobs wanted Android/Google to stop using apple's ideas? What idea, developing an OS for a mobile device?
    If anything Nokia, Palm and Blackberry should ask him to stop using their ideas.

    Competitive market is what makes America great.
