Technology platforms have transformed
In an issue from the ‘90s version of The Wooster Blade, a student provided his opinion on the comparison between Apple and IBM.
In his article, staff member David Schrier asserted, “I’m sure that if a Mac can’t run as fast as my clunker [car], it won’t compete with a state-of-the-art-PC.”
Schrier then challenged readers to find out which computer was right for them.
Now, about two decades later, the debate over which technology giant rules the market lives on.
Apple and IBM were the first big competitors in the world of technology as society knows it today, but over recent years, the competition has shifted to new faces of the industry.
Today, Apple, Inc., Google, Inc. and Microsoft, Inc. are considered the most powerful and influential technology corporations that produce the devices and machines that are used everyday.
Apple, Inc. is a powerhouse in the mobile phone and computer market, known for recent products like the iPhone and the iMac, as featured on apple.com.
Google and Microsoft, however, fight alongside Apple every step of the way.
Google’s relatively recent purchase of the Android operating system has made it a strong competitor on the mobile phone market, and Microsoft’s computers and Windows operating system challenges Apple brand computer products.
