Steve Jobs vowed to "destroy Android"

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.
