Jobs wanted to destroy Android

Google 5

hype7 writes "It's clear that Steve Jobs didn't pull any punches from the interviews for his forthcoming biography. In the latest release from the book, hosted over at AP: "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."
In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., 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.""

people with a egotistical maniac like personality like jobs do act the same way. if your doing a similar thing they are doing and your doing it a lot better, they throw the most violent temper tantrums you have ever seen next to 2 year olds.

Dennis Ritchie called from Heaven. He's calling Apple's use of BSD "grand theft" and says he wants Apple to stop using his ideas. Except he would never do that.

Dennis Ritchie was a great man whose work has benefited a lot of people but never became hugely rich. And Jobs? Well, de mortuis nil nisi bonum, which really means that there is nothing to say about him at all.
