    Google was on Apple's board

    The difference is that Google had Schmidt on the board of Apple and from that vantage betrayed Apple's and Jobs' trust. That is what pissed him off.

    I agree that innovation comes from earlier efforts and that we stand on each others efforts.

    But to compare iOS to Android in terms of innovation is laughable. The notification screen and such that Apple copied are minor compared to the entire platform that Android successfully emulated from iOS.

    There is a reason why before iPhone phones worked and looked a certain way and what they looked like after.

    Actually I give MSFT credit here, they didn't simply ape Apple and tried some interesting things with Windows Phone. Android is a wholesale clone outside of a few minor differences, and as I said earlier, Jobs is mad at how Google did it.
