Steve Jobs Animosity Towards Android Revealed
Even in death, Steve Jobs knows how to heat things up.
In what may just be the first of many posthumous controversies to hound the departed Apple co-founder, reports say Jobs had vowed to do everything he could to “destroy” Google’s Android mobile operating system, which he accused of copying the Apple’s iOS. According to a soon-to-be-released biography about the recognized father of the iPad, iPod, and iPhone, Jobs was quoted as saying that “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.”
The Android is viewed as the main reason for the falling between Apple and Google, which used to work hand in hand. Before the relationship between the two giant companies, Apple’s iPhone allowed integration of various Google apps. The Android has since dislodged the iOS in the global smartphone market, with Google’s OS integrated in nearly 50 percent of all shipments, BBC said in a report.
