With Steve Jobs’ biography scheduled for release on the 24th, the internets have been abuzz with excerpts from the book. There’s a particularly scathing one about Jobs’s reaction to Android. According to an AP report:
“‘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.’”
And remember that photo of Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt sitting outside of a Palo Alto café? Well, looks like we found out what the topic was:
That explains the look on Jobs’s face (Dickhead: Just. Stop. It) and the Schmidt’s puppy-busted-destroying-his-master’s-$300-Bostonians posture of shame. If he had a tail, it’d be between his legs. I’m not entirely convinced he doesn’t.
