Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates: After 24 years, again!!!

I have question at the bottom of the post: Drop your comments!!!

Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates: After 24 years, again!!!

To create a new standard, it takes something that’s not just a little bit different, it takes something that’s really new and really captures people’s imagination and the Macintosh, of all the machines I’ve ever seen, is the only one that meets that standard.”
Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 1984

If I were running Apple, I would milk the Macintosh for all it’s worth–and get busy on the next great thing. The PC wars are over. Done. Microsoft won a long time ago.”

Steve Jobs, 1996

As far as I have read, it was in year 1983 when these two icons came together, then young, aggressive and visionaries, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates again met during the D conference.

For some reason, I have always been a big fan of Steve Jobs. I know, he knows and so does everyone knows, he cant sit and code nor can he design!!!

But, then it takes guts, to visualize a product, the beauty, the impact and above all the market and then RUDELY get the work done.

One thing about Apple and Steve jobs is that they think what MSFT cannot. They think innovation. They think beauty. They think creativity.

I would like all my readers to read the novel named “ICON” on Steve Jobs. His autobiography.

For now, you people enjoy this interview Here.

It has links for podcats, live blogging, and videos as well. Enjoy.

Now, time for some mind-tickling!!!

After the rumors of MSFT + Yahoo being false. Why not Apple + Google?

Imagine the future war as Tag-Team wars!!!

MSFT/Yahoo or Apple/Google. Which one would you prefer to be winner?

Apple Inc 2.0? iTunes 2.0? Will it work?

Yesterday I read the article written by Steve Jobs on the music industry and the piracy issues involved. If I was to draw a conclusion out of it, I would say Steve jobs is now against the music industry gaints including SONY BMG, Universal, EMI etc.

Before you read what I think, it would be good if u read the article.

Steve Jobs Article on Music Industry
http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughtsonmusic/

Steve Jobs only suggested only 3 ways of how the future can be with DRM’s, the music, the devices and above all the customers!!! Here, I suggest One more way of how Apple can outperform other players, Music companies to win greater markets.

Lets us say, Apple goes the Web 2.0 way. and iTunes store becomes Store 2.0. In which  they call users, customers to upload songs to the Apple music server and from there they can download without any DRM’s.

When a company sells CD’s/DVD’s, it does not come with DRM,{DRM is just for security and to stop piracy}. But, still peers circulate the Disks and this is one form of piracy which companies can never stop.

So whats wrong in people collecting their information on web?

Once, users start collecting on the music server, there will be absolutely no bars on which device you can play songs or even on multiple devices. This can only give boom to 90 million already sold iPods.

On these 90 Million iPods only 3% of the songs are taken from iTunes Store. What about the rest 97%? Anyhow, users dont want to pay for music, since lot of websites are giving the same for free, What can any music company do to stop piracy?

Better release all DRM’s and make music a new religion.

So what do u people think, will the Apple 2.0 model work? Drop your comments.

Cheers
