Google Versus Apple – Let The Games Begin

Posted By: Steve Bellamy on August 3, 2009 11:21 pm

How many times have you been getting on chair 5 at Mammoth Mountain and the guy on your left side works at Google and the guy on your right side works for Apple.  Although we don’t have the hard scientific data, these two companies have got to the have the most skiers of any companies in the world outside of the ski resorts or outdoor manufacturers. 

The Lakanuki in Mammoth Village is like an Apple/Google or should we say Google/Apple party during the entire ski season.  What is it about sitting on giant balls in your workplace all day long that makes you want to shush Coyote or Daves Run?  Well it looks like the battle might be leaving the ski resort and jumping into the 9 to 5 arena. 

Round 1 – Apple rejects Google Voice Apps for the iPhone – huh???  That was followed by Eric Schmidt (we’ve heard he rocks like Foghat on skis) stepping down from Apples Board of Directors.  Are the coopetures (how the hell do you spell coopetures anyway) finally going the way of Eminem and Mariah Carey?  Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie?  Perez Hilton and the Black Eyed Peas Manager?  Clay Aiken and Dolly Parton (OK, we made that one up.)  Please add you own in the comment section below.

The Ski Channel has the solution….tada  The Ski Channel’s Apple versus Google Winter Games.  Any of you Googler’s or Applers in?
