On this edition of First Ring Daily Live, Apple and Microsoft may be best friends, Intel and compute cards are not friendly, and we had to NYC next week to see friends.
<p>The point about Microsoft and Apple not competing is correct but you guys are over a decade late in that revelation. When Steve Jobs came back to Apple he dispensed with the notion that the two were rivals. Below is Jobs talking about it in an interview in 2007:</p><p><br></p><p class="ql-indent-1"><em>"…there were too many people at Apple and in the Apple ecosystem playing the game of, for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose. And it was clear that you didn’t have to play that game because Apple wasn’t going to beat Microsoft. Apple didn’t have to beat Microsoft. Apple had to remember who Apple was because they’d forgotten who Apple was.</em></p><p class="ql-indent-1"><em>So to me, it was pretty essential to break that paradigm. And it was also important that, you know, Microsoft was the biggest software developer outside of Apple developing for the Mac. So it was just crazy what was happening at that time. And Apple was very weak and so I called Bill up and we tried to patch things up."</em></p><p><br></p>
