Late News: Steve Jobs Biography Update, Ice Cream Sandwich Source Code, Google Rejigs Reader

Steve Jobs - the man responsible for turning his fruit-themed company into the most valued technology outfit in the world, tried some exotic diets, along with sophisticated treatments to fight pancreatic cancer - the disease that eventually took his life earlier this month.

According to a recent revelation, Apple co-founder and ex-CEO Steve Jobs said he was "willing to go thermonuclear war" against arch rival Google Inc.'s Android operating software. Apparently Mr. Jobs threatened to destroy Android as he believed the mobile OS platform from the Mountain View based search giant had many features in it which could be termed as "grand theft".

Developers from around the world haven't managed to get their hands onto the source code of Google's latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Google Inc. released its brand new version of the Android operating system earlier this week amidst massive anticipation amongst fan-boys and the developer community.

Internet search giant Google Inc. has reportedly failed to deliver its Google Apps software to more than a third of Los Angeles city employees owing to security concerns. Dennis Zine, a member in the Los Angeles City Council, filed a motion on Wednesday requesting for a status report on the search giant's contract with the city.

As expected, Google finally declared last week that it is ending Google Buzz. This announcement caused some anxiety to the Google Reader users. Apparently, the move by the search giant gave many Google Reader users the impression that the company was going to kill the Reader too.
