The Rivals is the prospective title for a book I’m writing, to be published by Kogan Page. Me? I’m Charles Arthur, technology editor at The Guardian. The book’s due to be delivered in July 2011, though publication might take longer.
If you’ve worked or do work for Microsoft, Apple or Google and you think you’d be able to give me some useful insight into the company’s thinking and business processes (say, why Apple didn’t create a software ecosystem for the original iPod, but did – eventually – for the iPhone, or why Microsoft took so long to realise that search would be big business) then I’d love to hear from you; you can be as anonymous as you like.
