A biography about Steve Jobs has confirmed what all of us Android people knew for a long time, Jobs HATES Android! This explains the numerous lawsuits against Google and its licensees. This biography was put together by Walter Isaacson and had put the light on many aspects of Apple’s co-founder’s life. Jobs wasn’t shy to show his true emotions toward Android, here’s one of his statements:
“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… I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
The biography also highlighted meetings that Eric Schmidt and Jobs have had in the past at Palo Alto to settle lawsuits. Apparently, Jobs wasn’t interested in resolving an y issues and instead told Schmidt:
I don’t want your money… I want you to stop using our ideas in Android
Apple’s ex-CEO also shared how unhappy he was when HTC release its first Android devices. He claimed that the Taiwanese manufacturer stole the iPhone features and use them on their phones. One thing is for sure, Apple isn’t going to stop and will surely follow the steps of its founder.
That’s what he said….
