Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

If someone stole my business idea and I had the resources to fight it to recoup lost revenue, if I'm emotional about it also how does that make it a move based on emotions rather than business strategy?


It does when it hurts more your own brand image than anything else.

When it's not only about money, it's not a business strategy. And the point here is Apple has already so much money that they aren't after it anymore.

Well, under Jobs era, that is.
I'll bet this will change, soon.
