Just a day ago, it was reported that the Steve Jobs anger against Android was just “for show”, as the Google’s CEO Larry Page commented during an interview this week. No doubt, this news totally gives a shock to the large number of users who hates the Android Phones just because they have premium iPhone in their hands. But it appears the original report was just “for show”, not the original words from Steve Jobs.
Right after the Larry Page comments on the mater, the Walter Isaacson, the Steve Jobs official biography writer claims that his anger against Android was real, and there was nothing just “for show”. Isaacson, also compared the Jobs feeling about the Android over iOS with the Microsoft Windows over Macintosh. He quoted that Steve Jobs thinks Android similarity on iOS is just like a “history repeating itself.”
Isaacson continued: “It’s almost copied verbatim by Android. And then they licence it around promiscuously. And then Android starts surpassing Apple in market share, and this totally infuriated him. It wasn’t a matter of money. He said: ‘You can’t pay me off, I’m here to destroy you’.”
Walter Isaacson goes on to describe the true feelings of Steve Jobs in the media to clear out all the misunderstanding over the Jobs anger on Android. Isaacson also noted that Steve Jobs had different views than Tim Cook on handling these sort of things, and “will settle that lawsuit.” Yeah! You are readying correctly, in the past, we have also heard that Apple might be looking forward to settling down its years-old lawsuit against Android with Google. Apple currently had around hundreds of different lawsuits against Android handset makers around the world, and in many cases, Apple won the injunctions against the Android phones and their phone makers.
