Steve Jobs, Walter Isaacsons hotly anticipated bio of the Apple guru came out on Monday, but the media has already got its hands on the book. The notoriously private Jobs gave Isaacson unprecedented access, granting him over 40 interviews. Here, seven revelations: 1. He was really furious about Googles Android Jobs said Google was guilty of grand theft when HTC released an Android phone that borrowed or approximated many of the iPhones popular features. Apple promptly sued Google, in one of the early shots of the ongoing mobile patent wars. I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apples $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong, Jobs told his biographer in an expletive laced rant. Im going to destroy Android, because its a stolen product. Im willing to go thermonuclear war on this. When former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, who also served as an Apple board member from 2006 to 2009 before quitting due to conflict of interest, tried to settle the lawsuit, Jobs told him, I dont want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I wont want it. Ive got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, thats all I want. 2. He regretted delaying cancer surgery After being diagnosed with a rare type of operable pancreatic cancer in October 2003, Job delayed having surgery for nine months, instead adopting a vegan diet and trying alternative therapies. Years later, Jobs told Isaacson, with what his biographer notes was a hint of regret, that I really didnt want them to open up my body, so I tried to see if a few other things would work. In a 60 Minutes interview, Isaacson says, He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it... I think [at the time] that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you dont want something to exist, you can have magical thinking. 3. He thought he might die young As a young man, Jobs suspected he wouldnt live to a ripe old age, telling John Sculley, Apples onetime CEO who fired Jobs in 1985, that none of us has any idea how long were going to be here nor do I, but my feeling is Ive got to accomplish a lot of these things while Im young. 4. He wanted to help Obama his way Youre headed for a one-term presidency, Jobs told Obama when they met in the fall of 2010, insisting that the administration needed to be more business friendly. Jobs wanted to help create political ads for Obama in 2008 on par with Reagans acclaimed morning in America spots, but clashed with Obamas chief strategist David Axelrod. Jobs was also frustrated by an overly fussy menu served at a White House dinner for innovative CEOs that he helped plan. The fare included a shrimp, cod, and lentil salad and a chocolate truffle dessert. 5. He had little respect for Bill Gates Jobs once said of Gates: Hed be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. At another point, he said, Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think hes more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology. He just shamelessly ripped off other peoples ideas. 6. He didnt always shower enough for corporate life After Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in 1976, the young geniuses and their financial backers brought on Michael Scott to help run the company as CEO. According to Steve Jobs, Scott was hired mainly to manage Jobs, then 22, and one of his first orders of business was trying to get Jobs to bathe more frequently, says the Associated Press. It didnt work. 7. The Apple II was inspired by a Cuisinart Though the legendary Apple II, released in 1977, was praised for its clean aesthetic, it was originally going to look much different, and far more complicated, with a Plexiglass cover, roll-top door, and metal straps. While Jobs was shopping in a department store, a Cuisinart food processor caught his eye, and he decided he wanted the computers case to be made of molded plastic instead. Daily Beast
