Seems like the knives are out a bit as two tech behemoths are increasing competing the same fields. Apple and Microsoft used to be looser competitors, but with Microsoft really hitting tablets and mobile phones of late, the gloves are off. VentureBeat covered all the particulars quite well in this article.
Here are some eye blackening highlights from Apple:
- “Our competition is different: They’re confused. They chased after netbooks. Now they’re trying to make PCs into tablets and tablets into PCs. Who knows what they’ll do next? I can’t answer that question, but I can tell you that we’re focused.”
- “The days of spending hundreds of dollars to get the most from your computer are gone.”
- “Now you can create a document on an iPad, edit it on a Mac, and even share it with a friend who’s stuck on a PC.”
And the boys are Microsoft are not backing down!
This is going to be good, people…
