A story getting a fair amount of coverage today is that for the first time Apple beat Microsoft in market cap. I have read several articles about this and some of them have included the “battle” between Apple and Microsoft.
Do I want to be like Microsoft and have such a complex array of products and services that you practically need a degree to keep it all straight? Or do I want to be like Apple and do what I do and do it really, really well?
Both companies have their place in this world and so does my business. For me I know that I will deliver a better product to my clients if I try to be more like Steve so that is the route I am choosing.
There is a lot that any business can learn from watching these two mega-companies and the talent that leads them. I know that I will continue watching them both.
