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€?
