'No, Steve, I think its more like we both have a rich neighbor named Xerox, and you broke in to steal the TV set, and you found out I'd been there first, and you said. "Hey that's no fair! I wanted to steal the TV set!' - B Gates.......Jobs was such a cry baby...

Also consider the fact that the writer spoke with Jobs when he was CEO and the other guy spoke with him after he was really sick, retired, and home with his family. At that point in his life he probably reevaluated his priorities and what's important in life. So he may have really hated Android and bought voodoo dolls for all the executives. But he probably also came down from that and felt it wasn't worth it later on in life.

Jobs sounds like a big whiny baby. Can't control everything, I thought he would have been smart enough to realize that.

steve stole it from xerox but wasnt smart enough to make it work right, bill "innovated" that and made windows from it... steve then "innovated" the windows ideas into his apple computers, if i remember it correctly. :)
