Tech betrayal No. 10: You only hurt the ones you iLove
Remember when Apple and Google were BFFs? It wasn't that long ago. Until August 2009, then Google CEO Eric Schmidt sat on Apple's board. Jobs and Schmidt even shared the occasional cup of joe together. That was when Google was still an Internet giant and Apple was a hardware and OS company. After Android handsets began appearing everywhere, though, Jobs vowed to go “thermonuclear” on Google and spend every dollar Apple had trying to destroy the Google OS, according to his biography. But it was one victory Jobs did not live to see. Android now commands 51 percent of the worldwide smartphone market, more than double Apple's 24 percent.
