Digital wars: Apple, Google, Microsoft [Infographic]

I’ve been listening to Charles Arthur every Tuesday on the Guardian pod-cast, Tech weekly, for the past year. Arthur would mention his upcoming book whenever the tech giants of Apple, Google or Microsoft were pitched against each other in the news. Hearing Arthur in my car once a week makes me feel like I know the dude, so when he announced that his book had just been published I downloaded a copy for Kindle. The book got me thinking in pictures, so rather than review the book, I thought I’d illustrate it. Each frame is drawn from a chapter.

The book is titled:Digital Wars: Apple, Google, Microsoft and the Battle for the Internet and in my opinion well worth reading!

Here is my graphical interpretation of the book.
