Steve Jobs Was Ready For “Thermonuclear War” Against Android for Stealing Apple’s Ideas #teechy

21 Oct

“I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apples $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,” Jobs said. “Im going to destroy Android, because its a stolen product. Im willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Googles Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasnt interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.”I dont want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I wont want it. Ive got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, thats all I want.”
