    Quoting this as being as ridiculous as Henry's Christian Atheist statement.

    I suppose RIM and Palm are also not competitors?

    that's different. I just rewatched the 2007 conference with steve jobs and bill gates. First of all, they threw hints in about stuff coming out now. Bill, in essence, talked about natal for the xbox.

    But, microsoft does not make computers. they, to my knowledge, don't make cellphones. iPhone OS and Microsoft mobile compete, but iPhone OS has it's own hardware that works together. It's a different approach.

    The biggest thing, IMHO, that apple and microsoft are really competitors about are it's MP3 players. Microsoft makes the zune and the software. Apple makes the iPod and the software. Both have apps and do all the same junk.

    Then you also have Apple iWork vs Microsoft Office. Except, iWork isn't on PC computers. So, they only compete on one platform. So, I don't really consider them competitors in that case.

    Oh, they directly compete in the same markets, but they aren't competitors. I get it now.

    I'm thinking more general, and not just phones. If you speak just about phones, the google nexus one is a competitor to the iPhone. Google requested certain hardware for their software, and have branded it as the "Google Phone"

    Again, listening to that conference was really interesting. Steve talks about google as a partner more than anything. He says, apple doesn't know how to make a maps program, or at least not as well as google maps. However, they are able to make an interface and experience that is better than that of regular google maps on the web. Now, that's not competiting, that's working with.

    Microsoft is apple's biggest partner. When Microsoft was coming out with the 360, they placed the largest order (i think ever) on the apple towers. This was because the chip apple was going away from, was what was being put in the 360. It was a good transition for both companies.

    You can be in the same market, and not be a competitor. Not a direct competitor at least. I think this is the problem with stigmas. There is a stat that was brought to attention recently, that over 80% of people who own a mac own a pc. If they were competitors, that wouldn't be the case.


    They are competitors in the fact that they have a different approach to things. But both of them thinks it's a good thing, and a healthy relationship. Steve even said something along the lines that apple's goal is not to directly compete with Microsoft.
