ラリー・ページの「ジョブズの怒りは芝居」発言に伝記作家「あれは芝居じゃない」:Jobs’s Biographer v. Larry Page

I think the Android differences were actually for show. I had a relationship with Steve. I wouldn’t say I spent a lot of time with him over the years, but I saw him periodically. Curiously enough, actually, he requested that meeting. He sent me an e-mail and said: “Hey, you want to get together and chat?” I said, “Sure, I’ll come over.” And we had a very nice talk. We always did when we had a discussion generally.[...]
(Wait, the fury around Android was for show?)

I think that served their interests. For a lot of companies, it’s useful for them to feel like they have an obvious competitor and to rally around that. I personally believe that it’s better to shoot higher. You don’t want to be looking at your competitors. You want to be looking at what’s possible and how to make the world better. - Bloomberg




ああすれば自社の利益になる、ということだったのではないかと。企業は誰の目にも明らかな敵がいて反旗翻す気構えを持つことが有効に作用する場合も多いですからね。僕個人は、敵よりもっと高みに弾を放ちたい。ライバル見る暇あったら、自分に何ができるか、どうしたら世界をより良いものにできるか、それだけ見ていたい。 - Bloomberg

It's almost copied verbatim by Android. And then they licence it around promiscuously. And then Android starts surpassing Apple in market share, and this totally infuriated him. It wasn't a matter of money. He said: 'You can't pay me off, I'm here to destroy you'.”

As for what will happen now that Jobs isn’t around to go ‘thermonuclear’ on Google, Isaacson thinks that Apple CEO Tim Cook will handle things differently. “Tim Cook will settle that lawsuit”, Isaacson added.-Walter Isaacson. MacWorld

Which one is telling the truth? Maybe both?
