Behind the bitter rivalry between Apple and Google - and how it´s reshaping the way we think about technology. The rise of smartphones and tablets has altered the business of making computers. At the center of this change are Apple and Google, two companies whose philosophies, leaders, and commercial acumen have steamrolled the competition. In the age of Android and the iPad, these corporations are locked in a feud that will play out not just in the marketplace but in the courts and on screens around the world. Fred Vogelstein has reported on this rivalry for more than a decade and has rare access to its major players. In Dogfight, he takes us into the offices and board rooms where company dogma translates into ruthless business; behind outsize personalities like Steve Jobs, Apple´s now lionized CEO, and Eric Schmidt, Google´s executive chairman; and inside the deals, lawsuits, and allegations that mold the way we communicate. Apple and Google are poaching each other´s employees. They bid up the price of each other´s acquisitions for spite, and they forge alliances with major players like Facebook and Microsoft in pursuit of market dominance. Dogfight moves like a novel: Vivid nonfiction with never-before-heard details. This is more than a story about what devices will replace our phones and laptops. It´s about who will control the content on those devices and where that content will come from - about the future of media in Silicon Valley, New York, and Hollywood. 1. Language: English.

In this special issue: Fast Company´s report on the 50 most innovative companies. Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google are transformational firms, obsessions of the business world and deservedly so. But if you had to pick, which one would you say is the most innovative--literally, the most innovative company in the world? (And then who´s No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4?) The four we chose were featured on our cover last November. Since then, they have jostled for the No. 1 title--with Amazon´s Kindle Fire tablet, Apple´s Siri voice assistant, Facebook´s Timeline interface, and Google´s reinvention of YouTube as a niche-programming powerhouse. Yet each company has fallen victim to hubris, causing public-relations firestorms and some sloppy products. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Borgers.

Welcome to Forbes for May 12, 2014 from Audible. This edition contains seven feature articles. In the cover story: ´´Is This How We´ll Cure Cancer?” With a radical new treatment, Joseph Jimenez is dedicating Novartis to one overarching mission: vanquishing mankind´s ancient adversary. Its breakthrough might be the most tangible -- ever. . . . Also, ´´The World´s Largest Companies: Is This China´s Century?” The FORBES Global 2000 is a comprehensive list of the world’s largest, most powerful public companies, as measured by revenues, profits, assets and market value. Next, ´´Nadella´s Bid to Fix Microsoft: What Ballmer Didn´t Dare” 100 days in Nadella has established himself as the anti-Ballmer; there’s less talk about seizing billion-dollar opportunities or hitting financial targets — and more emphasis on investing profits to win hordes of new users. Then, ´´Amazon´s Wholesale Slaughter: Jeff Bezos´ $8 Trillion B2B Bet” Forget the delivery drones and TV deals. Jeff Bezos’ stealthy foray into the unsexy world of B2B distribution is likely his most disruptive move yet — and it has an $8 trillion swath of the economy running scared. We´ll also tell you how ´´Nielsen Is About to Help Programmers Profit from Your Online TV Viewing” Thanks to new partnerships with Google and Facebook, Nielsen can now track everything you view, even on your phone, laptop, or tablet. Followed by, ´´Why the Left Should Love Big Profits” French economist and darling of the left Thomas Piketty is the latest in an endless array of economists who are clueless regarding profits and what brings about prosperity and a higher standard of living. And in our final story, ´´Forget Piketty Data Fascism Is the Bigger Threat” A specter is haunting American capitalism. No, it’s not a French economist. Rather, it´s the ghost of Frederick Taylor, dressed up in the fashionable clothes of big data and predictive analytics. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ken Borgers.
