Reported in numerous places. This from Redmond Pie:

http://www.redmondpie.com/from-steve-jobs-biography-im-going-to-destroy-android-because-its-a-stolen-product/

Quote:

I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Appleís $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,Ē Jobs said. ďIím going to destroy Android, because itís a stolen product. Iím willing to go thermonuclear war on this.


And to Eric Schmidt:

Quote:

I donít want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I wonít want it. Iíve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, thatís all I want.

Hmmm...

Pot meet kettle...

I wonder how much has been stolen by Apple since its inception?

The list is known and almost endless...

Never ceases to amaze me how they can charge outrageous
sums for a "FREE" kernel on their PCs etc...

So Steve Jobs gets to the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter is gazing sourly at a tablet.

"Hi Pete", he says breezily, "You look a bit blue, what's up?"

"Oh, hello Steve," says the Guardian of the Gates of Heaven, "I got so used to thumbing my phone buttons, when I got this touch tablet I jabbed the screen with my thumb and I don't know what happened but the gates won't open for anybody today. I'm having to send you all, ah - downstairs."

*No worries," says Steve, "I know the iPad inside out, I'll reset it for you and fix the gates app."

They gaze at each other a few long seconds, each determined not to crack any "Gates" gags.

Finally St. Peter replies, "Sorry Steve, it's a Galaxy. Not $40 Billion, not a thermonuclear warhead can get you out of this one. 'Bye."

"Good artists copy, great artists steal. We have been shameless about stealing great ideas." - Steve Jobs.

If indeed the story is true.
