Steve Jobs was known for his fanaticism for his own ompany Apple, which is why he was such a technoly innovator and a genius. His authorized biography written by Walter Isaacson, shows that Jobs was angry with how Google supposedly stole certain aspects of the iOS mobile platform for Android OS. According to Jobs biography, he told the writer:
“I will spend my lasy 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 expressed his extreme side saying:
“I’m going to destroy Android… I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
The reason as to why Jobs would do this according to Larry is:
“For a lot of companies, it’s useful for them to feel like they have an obvious competitor and to rally around that.”
It is strange that technology innovators would need negative sentiments too motivate their own team rather than asking them to make the world better on their with technology regardless of who else is copying them. Google’s Larry wants to stand clean on this and said that t was his privilege to have met Jobs during his last year in life.
