Apple vs. Google: Digital StakesPlay
The chips are down on Web versus apps and who owns the future.
It’s Google’s world, and we just live in it. Or maybe it’s Apple’s world and we just live in it.
Now the two tech giants are battling on a zillion fronts to decide which it is. Will you use Apple TV? Or Google TV? iPhone or Android? Apple’s iPad, or a Google-powered pad? iTunes for your tunes? Or Google tunes one day soon?
It’s more than battling brand names. The two giants have different ways of approaching the world, of using the Internet. And they’re really fighting.
We look at Google versus Apple. Steve Jobs versus Eric Schmidt. App versus web page. And the world we’ll live in.
