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.

Living in Hell is a true story providing a window into the life of a young woman growing up in Iran. It is also an educational history of Iran and its people. Although this story is entirely mine, it is also the story of too many women in the Middle East who suffer similar fates. Iranian women have come a long way since I grew up in Iran but still much needs to be done for them, as well other women of the Middle East, to become completely independent, able to make their own decisions and stand up for their rights with head held high. If there is a lesson to be learned from my life it is that, even though my past was ruined, my future is entirely in my own hands. Growing up in such a volatile time made me who I am today. What didn't kill me made me stronger. Without those experiences, I would have glossed over others' pain. Despite the pain I endured I don't consider my life as suffering. And, as they say, 'Pain is unavoidable, suffering is optional.' I hope you draw from the educational narrative of this book and I look forward to reading your reviews on Amazon. My next nonfiction book will be called Inside the Beltway. You can find me on LinkedIn, Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter.
