Exactly How Strong is Steve Jobs?

According to this Google source, Steve Jobs told Google NOT to implement the multitouch feature on the Android phone, G1. Obviously, Google complied, but why?

First off, Google DID NOT want to piss off Steve Jobs. Second, is to avoid a lawsuit over patents. Apple does have a ton of patents on its gadgets. Hence the whole Apple vs. Palm lawsuit that seems to be ensuing.

Obviously Google doesn't want to ruin its relationship with a company like Apple.[Venture Beat via Gizmodo]
