Steve Jobs Vowed to 'Destroy' Android

The forthcoming biography of Apple's late leader quotes him as saying he would spend his "last dying breath" fighting Google's mobile operating system.

BBC News: The forthcoming biography of Steve Jobs written by Walter Isaacson sheds some light of Jobs' opinion of Google's mobile operating system Android. "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this," Jobs said. "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."

Prior to the release of Android, Google and Apple had a good relationship, and Google chairman Eric Schmidt even sat on Apple's board.
