Digital Wars

Digital Wars

by Charles Arthur

Fast Review…

This is a tale of three titans of the digital world; Apple, Google and Microsoft. The book walks through the history of those companies and how they impacted the world and each other. As a bit of computer history geek, I didn’t find anything particularly new here but it is well put together and a tale nicely told. I had a slight issue with the repeated spelling out of acronyms and repetition of certain points (I can recall something I read two pages ago!) but I understand why that’s done and they are very minor irritations in an otherwise extremely interesting and entertaining book – and there are some cool references to the way Apple, in particular, manipulates the market with a few cunning psychological ‘tricks’ :)

Audiobook…

Available on Audible and very well read (not by the author).

Re-read?

Probably not, or at least not for a while.
