Digital Wars

Book Description

Apple, Google and Microsoft are locked in a battle to dominate the internet and especially the fastest-growing part of it - mobile. All three have fought each other in previous wars, and now they want to dominate search technology, cloud computing, mobile music and the smartphone market. Whoever wins will exert a wide ranging control over user data and access to content, and even how we use and interact with computers. Digital Wars assesses who will be the victor and what the implications are for business, individuals and society. Accessible and comprehensive, it looks at the very different cultures of each business, the iPhone, Android, iPods (mobile music) and the browser and apps battles. Digital Wars tells you what to expect from the internet in the next five years, which company will ultimately be in the driving seat, and what the implications will be for us all.
