"At the beginning of the millennium, when text messaging was still a novelty, dozens of companies were jockeying for control of the mobile-communications market. Today, amid the many manufacturers of smartphones, tablets, and apps, two names tower above the others; Apple and Google, whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition - and now threaten to steamroll each other. In the age of the iPad and Android, the two companies are locked in a feud that will play out not only in the marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world. But the battle between Apple and Google is not just a story of corporate competition; it's a tale of friendships gone sour, of trust betrayed and agreements breached."
