In possibly one of the most revealing passages released thus far, the Associated Press shared what Jobs told Isaacson in regards to his feelings about Android.

I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong.

Reportedly Jobs then met with former Google CEO – and, at the time, Apple board member – Eric Schmidt and informed him that there was no way for the two companies to settle this matter. “I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.”

Steve Jobs will be released on October 24.
