Steve Jobs was willing to use everything he had to destroy Android. Among the quotes in Isaacon's book are, "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," and, "I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this." The case, in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, is Apple Inc. And NeXT Software Inc. V. Motorola Inc. and Motorola Mobility Inc., 11-cv-8540.
On Thursday, the Judge turned town Apple's request without explanation and that was followed Friday with a ruling from Judge Posner that Apple will not be allowed to argue to the jury that it should be "predisposed" to favor Apple over Motorola if it likes Apple's products or "admires" Steve Jobs. Posner wrote in his order, "I forbid Apple to insinuate to the jury that this case is a popularity contest."
