    Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google - and how it’s reshaping the way we think about technology. The rise of smartphones and tablets has altered the business of making computers. At the center of this change are Apple and Google, two companies whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition. In the age of Android and the iPad, these corporations are locked in a feud that will play out not just in the marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world.

    Story
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dogfight?

    I enjoyed the history and anecdotes on the development of the iPhone and iPad compared to the parallel development of Android. I have a better understanding of some of the less well-known people and how their actions helped to drive the development of products now in use by millions.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the bit about a flask of whisky being passed around by the iPhone product development team while Jobs gave that first demo. Had not heard that story before.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The final chapter seemed a bit pointless.
