Steve Jobs a dorit sa \”distruga\” Android OS inainte de moarte

    Aseara v-am prezentat un articol in care va spuneam ca Steve Jobs regreta decizia de a refuza o operatie care i-ar fi putut salva sau cel putin prelungi viata. Informatiile veneau din autobiografia scrisa de Walter isaacson care urmeaza sa fie lansata saptamana viitoare. In cursul acestei seri alte detalii picante din aceasta carte au fost publicate pe internet si intr-un scurt citat ni se prezinta un Steve Jobs dispus sa cheltuie toate fondurile banesti ale companiei Apple pentru a scoate de pe piata Android-ul “furat” de Andy Rubin.

Isaacson wrote that Jobs was livid in January 2010 when HTC introduced an Android phone that boasted many of the touch and other popular features of the iPhone. Apple sued, and Jobs told Isaacson in an expletive-laced rant that Google’s actions amounted to “grand theft.” 

“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.”

Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Google’s Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasn’t interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.

“I don’t want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.” The meeting, Isaacson wrote, resolved nothing.

    Se pare ca Jobs ura Android-ul cu toata fiinta sa si asta explica recentele procese intentate de catre compania Apple producatorilor de terminale Android din lumea intreaga. Android OS a fost dezvoltat in baza unei idei apartinand lui Andy Rubin, fost angajat al Apple in perioada anilor 90 cand la compania din Cupertino se puneau bazele iOS-ului asa cum il stim noi astazi. Andy Rubin a fost acuzat de catre Steve Jobs ca a furat ideile companiei Apple, idei brevetate, si a produs pentru Google Android OS, un sistem de operare care seamana, din multe privinte, foarte bine cu iOS.

     In final aflam ca Jony Ive are la Apple o putere aproape identica, cu cea a CEO-ului deoarece aceasta a fost dorinta lui Steve Jobs. Acesta sustine ca el era singurul care putea sa ii spuna lui Jony Ive cum sa creeze viitoarele produse ale Apple insa nici un alt membru al conducerii companiei nu avea putere de decizie mai mare decat Ive.

He called Jonathan Ive, Apple’s design chief, his “spiritual partner” at Apple. He told Isaacson that Ive had “more operation power” at Apple than anyone besides Jobs himself — that there’s no one at the company who can tell Ive what to do. That, says Jobs, is “the way I set it up.”
