Steve Jobs, the CEO and public face of Apple until his last days in 2011, never seemed to lack confidence in his product. However, a newly uncovered e-mail that Jobs sent to Apple execs exposes some jealousy toward Google’s Android, going as far as mentioning a “holy war” between the two tech giants.
The actual email message:
2011: Holy War with Google — all the ways we will compete with them. Google and Microsoft are further along on the technology, but haven’t quite figured it out yet.
No mention of actual jealousy.
jealousy |ˈjeləsē| noun (pl. jealousies)
the state or feeling of being jealous: a sharp pang of jealousy | resentments and jealousies festered.
Maybe it was more like anger and hatred that Google’s Android stole technology and designs developed by Apple.
