    Lightbulb 'I will destroy Android', Steve Jobs vowed

    Google accused of 'grand theft' in new authorised biography



    Apple’s visionary co-founder Steve Jobs swore he would spend all of his company’s $40 billion to annihilate Google’s rival smartphone operating system.

    The technology magnate’s hatred of Android is laid bare in a forthcoming official biography.
    Jobs told author Walter Isaacson that he viewed Android as "grand theft" of his idea for a mobile operating system.

    "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this,” read a quote from Jobs in an extract of Isaacson's book

    "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,” he added, as quoted by the Associated Press.

    Apple is currently in a legal battle with numerous smartphone manufacturers that use Android.

    Google chairman Eric Schmidt (pictured, right of Jobs) sat on the board of Apple when the first iPhone was in development.

    Apple unveiled its revolutionary phone in January 2007, just ten months before Google revealed its own plans to launch Android.

    Schmidt resigned from the Apple board in August 2009.

    "I was on the board until I couldn't stay on the board anymore,” he told Bloomberg at the time.

    Android is a significant rival in Apple’s smartphone business, with the likes of HTC and Samsung building numerous devices based on the OS.

    Steve Jobs passed away in his Palo Alto home in October, six weeks after resigning as CEO of Apple.
    A strong man doesn't need to read the future, he makes his own

    aita to open secret. The reason why Google could counter with iOS but Nokia or Blackberry could not is because Eric Smidth saw iPhone prototype development as he was also the board member of Apple. From then onwards, he secretly designed Android to counter iOS. In fact he got this vision of getting into smartphone after seeing iPhone and iOS.

    This is fact and this is why Android succeeded where Symbian or RIM OS or Windows could not. Android is a stolen idea that Eric got by misusing his privilege of being Apple board member.

    History will testify that a lot of great innovations and ideas were and still are - stolen ideas. We may cry as much as we want but any idea stolen and transformed is not punishable per se. MS, Facebook, Marconi, even our Zafar Iqbal did all that (his Kopotronic series is stolen from Russian Sci fi IVA). Even the oral saline remedy we use - was hijacked and touted as US idea. It is the other way round. Previously US used much expensive intravenous treatment.

    I guess we may think that certain creative people need a 'push' along the ryt direction; a shint where they will go. Unfortunately they find those signals on somewhat questionable premises.

    And another way to look at it is: JOR JAR MULUK TAR. Jaader form beshi, maush dhorey neo onader thekei churi kora hoisey.

    You missed out the big part: Android infringes loads of patents and Google is hiding behind OEMs. Now OEMs are paying fines from their pocket while Google is ripping off the profits.

    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.

    MS gets $10 to $15 for almost every android phone sold. Rumors say Apple gets similar from selective manufacturer too. Google paying how much? Zero!
    They are doing the same thing with WebM. If WebM gets slammed with lawsuits, Google will have zero liability. The ones who will utilize WebM will be the ones to pay up.

    Holy ¤¤¤¤ man...I never actually realised this till I read your post. You are absolutely right, Google left all of them hanging out to dry. I am kinda disappointed that Apple has been suing so many companies lately, but the main culprit remains untouched.

    Ideas have been 'stolen' for generations now in regard to various technologies, but im not necessarily saying that it should be taken for granted or is something that one should be proud of. Android is just one more example .

    But anyway, right now for us, this 'stolen' idea has given us a damn good alternative to iOS and throughout the past few years they both have implemented new features by, lets just say copying, from one another.

    About Google being hidden behind OEM's, yes its quite true. However, Samsung mobile division, HTC and some other manufacturers would not be anywhere near the position they are in today without Android. So while this is certainly not an ideal situation, its still something to take note of.

    if this was not the case a lot of people like us will never get to use a smartphone ever. we would be using 2yr old second hand 3GSs now. where in BD there never will be an Apple store.

    And why patents should not be sellable? Your company has a patent. Another company buys out your company. Patents should vanish?

    The point is Google knowingly violated the patents. At least MS is giving license to them. Apple always tries to C&D instead of giving license.
