Google Larry Page on Steve Jobs' comments on Android being a stolen product: "I think the Android differences were actually 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." We'll never know for sure, but considering Tim Cook is reportedly looking to start settling all these lawsuits, Page might be right. Let's hope the lawsuits - settled or no - at least lead to patent reform.

"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... I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."

Reportedly from Jobs in his biography, that sounds like genuine disdain to me.

or like at attempt at comedy.

It's what I'd expect some "I'm not a CEO, but I play one on TV" second rate actor to say.
