Two of the largest companies in the world, in the same industry and always pitched against one another. The age old battle, Apple vs Microsoft. Or for some of us, Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates. Arguably the masterminds behind each of the companies. But what's the actual difference's between these two heavy weight CEO's? How do they compare to one another?
I'm just as fascinated with these two companies and CEO's as many of you are.
I'm a firm believer that a companies culture and ethos starts from the top, and from day one. If a CEO doesn't believe in the companies culture it will never portray effectively to the world. Instead it will be a simple set of words with no real meaning.
So for me the question isn't Apple vs Microsoft. But Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates.
We've pulled together some comparable stats between the former Steve Jobs of Apple and the current Bill Gates of Microsoft.
Personally, I'm an Apple fan. Although from what the media portrays, I didn't always agree with the way Steve Jobs did things. But one thing is for sure. He built a very impressive company that has millions of fans and continues to grow, so kudos to Steve Jobs and Tim Cook for keeping the momentum going.
