    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.

    Bradley says: "Great book, But Narrator Needs Technical Help"
    "Well the first half of the book is interesting"

    What disappointed you about Dogfight?

    Dogfight is really all about Google and the author does a poor job of hiding his bias. Once he has covered Google completely reworking Android once the iPhone is released very little new information is presented.


    What was most disappointing about Fred Vogelstein’s story?

    It degenerated into an Apple-bashing book with very little new information about Google or Apple presented. Very little in-depth analysis of the interactions between Google and Apple. Doesn't provide any information that might put Google in a bad light.


    Have you listened to any of J. P. Demont’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The reader is very good with the exception of his constant mispronunciation of iOS.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dogfight?

    I wouldn't cut any scenes but would have sent the author back to do more research. Much of the second half of the book is just mentioning old news.
