Remember the good ol’ days of the Windows v. Apple battles? That battle seemed so innocent and almost cute compared to the mobile Armageddon that is shaping up between Apple and Google. Later today, Apple will roll out the new iPhone. Will it be the iPhone5 or will it go the way of the iPad and just be called the iPhone? Such suspense!
No matter what the semantics, today is a very big deal in the evolution of the mobile space. Apple will be officially further separating itself from any Google partnering with the YouTube and Maps changes. In essence, Apple is pushing away from the dock and putting together its own world that many think will ultimately be connected to your iTunes account in an attempt to get a piece of everything you ever buy again.
