Everyone knows the fact that Android stands first in the list of competitors of Apple’s IOS. The very line of Steve jobs famous for his wrath against Google is “I’m going to destroy Android because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this”.
As the words of Steve jobs are clearly convicting Google for stealing. The reason behind calling Google a thief is still quite nebulous from one’s point of view and can be self-explanatory in one’s context.
According to Steve Jobs, Android, now the world famous operating system, was a stolen product. The most compatible reason behind this could be extracted from the fact that the thought of Android was taken from the idea of IOS.
Though at that time Apple did not have the patent over it and a lot of work was going on IOS. Despite the fact that Android became global in 2005 while IOS in 2007, it is widely believed by apple’s adherent that Android was a stolen product.
