10. Jobs declares "thermonuclear war" on Android
Steve Jobs may have been prone to hyperbole but he certainly wasn't one to mince words.
When Google dropped the Android OS on the mobile world it was Jobs who infamously promised to go "thermonuclear war" on the search giant. Jobs saw the competitor OS as "grand theft" and vowed to right the mobile OS wrong.
