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.

Cook, however, he did not experience the downfall of Apple, so it is unsurprising that he is not strongly willing to go and destroy Android.


Maybe he's concerned about anti-trusts and that destroying Android would make Apple look like a monopoly. They've seen how that sort of thing got Microsoft in hot water.
