The Google vs Apple War is On!
The Google I/O Conference is currently taking place in San Francisco. Google is king when it comes to search on the web and the plethora of cloud-based programs they offer for free. I love Gmail and it’s the best thing to ever come from Google (aside from their search).
With Google’s foray into Android, they have clearly begun taking shots at Apple and the iPhone. At the keynote speech Google’s VP of Engineering, Vic Gundotra took some time to jab at Apple and their “vision”. I love how both of these companies are vying for the spotlight. Healthy competition only benefits consumers in the end. It’s a great time to consider jumping into the smartphone market.
However, we know not to count out Steve Jobs and Apple. Vic’s blatant jab at Steve might come back to bite Google in the butt as Apple’s 2010 WWDC is just around the corner. And we all know what is going to be announced then that will wipe the headlines clean of any Google-related story: the iPhone 4G.
Watch the video below and check it out for yourself. Is it me, or do all presentations nowadays try to emulate the Apple “style” of keynotes?
