9780007544172: Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War and Started a Revolution

Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google – and how an an epic battle is reshaping the way we think about technology.

The deathmatch between Apple and Google is not just a story of corporate competition – it’s a dramatic saga of a friendship gone sour, of trust and agreements betrayed, of visionaries Steve Jobs and his successor Tim Cook versus Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt. This is a story of bickering, backstabbing, poaching and paranoia, of hardware versus software and patents versus products.

After more than a decade of reporting on this rivalry, Fred Vogelstein has incredible access to the boardroom conversations, unofficial reactions, outbursts, personalities, deals, lawsuits and allegations that have shaped how we use these products.

Review:

‘Every half generation there is a revolution in Silicon Valley that turns the world on its ear. In the 1980s there was the PC. In the 1990s there was the Internet browser. Now in the 21st Century there is the smartphone. In ‘Dogfight’, Fred Vogelstein supplies a riveting and previously untold account of how Apple and Google came to dominate this new world – and became mortal enemies’ Chris Anderson, former editor-in-chief, Wired, author of ‘The Long Tail’

‘This is a big book. Not in size but in scope. It is not just a business book … Fred Vogelstein has written a crisp and compelling narrative about how the digital earthquake disrupts all companies in the communications business, be they young or old, and how it upends many of our familiar habits. If you want to understand why the ground you are standing on is unsteady, and what the future might look like, read this superb book’ Ken Auletta, author of ‘Googled: The End of the World as We Know It’

‘No battle in the business world is more important than Apple versus Google in the quest for smartphone supremacy, and now Fred Vogelstein has provided the essential blow-by-blow. Dogfight has teeth!’ Steven Levy, author of ‘In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes Our Lives’
