Can Google Beat Microsoft?
Interesting article at InformationWeek looks at the new book by Stephen E. Arnold, “The Google Legacy” which suggests that Microsoft could be the hunter that became the hunted.
â€œBill Gates is basically in the same spot he had IBM in. IBM was challenged by Microsoft and IBM didnâ€™t understand Microsoftâ€™s business model. Itâ€™s history repeating itself.â€?
Arnold, author of â€œThe Google Legacyâ€?, said in an interview this week, that it appears that Microsoft doesnâ€™t understand Google in much the same way that IBM didnâ€™t understand Microsoft 20 years ago. â€œIt will be the Googleplex from 2004 to 2020 â€“ a network paradigm,â€? said Arnold. â€œIt will be enabled by Googleâ€™s approach to innovation.â€?
