Beschreibung

Digital Wars starts in 1998, when the Internet and computing business was about to be upended - by an antitrust case, a tiny start-up and a former giant rebuilding it. Charles Arthur here examines the differing strategies of the three best-known tech companies in their battle to win control of the exploding network connecting the world. Microsoft was a giant - soon to become the highest-valued company in the world - while Apple was a minnow and Google just a start-up. By February 2012, Apple was worth more than both Microsoft and Google combined. Through the voices of former and current staff, Arthur looks at the tumultuous battle between the three companies and what their various successes meant for us.

Good but sometimes not very detailed insights

The audiobook gives good but not always detailed insights. Other facts are over exaggerated like the claim that early Android tablets had only one hour battery life. I had a first-generation Motorola tablet as a testing device at work but it had more battery life. The Yahoo story is also a bit wrong. It wasn't false projection of growth but the weak search ad platform that lead to the Bing deal. In general it's a nice overview of what happened though. 4 of 5 stars for me.

Viel Liebe zum Detail, leider veraltet

Sehr detailiert wird hier der Kampf ins Internet in den Jahren 1998 bis 2011 dargestellt. Im Wesentlichen geht es darum, wie Microsoft zuerst den Suchmaschinen Kampf gegen Google, um anschließend den Musikplayer- und Tablet-Kampf gegen Apple zu verlieren. Nun sind seit 2011 aber 5 Jahre vergangen, was eben in diesem Technikbereich eine halbe Ewigkeit ist. höchste Zeit für einen zweiten Teil, in dem Android sein Monopol erringt, und Microsoft wie Phönix aus der Asche mit dem Surface zurück zur Innovation findet.
