Another week come and gone and you were too busy to read Mac|Life? For shame, for shame, after all the crafting and hunting and reviewing of the news we do for you? Well, we love you so much, Dear Reader, that we've even gone and picked out some highlights for you in case you're in a hurry.
So last week Microsoft really won the headlines with their Apple competition, this week was Google's week to shine. How did they do? And did Apple have anything to counter or are those two schlubs just catching some waves, playing in WWDC's wake? Let's take a look.
Apple vs. Google: the debate rages on, only amplified by the recent WWDC and ongoing Google I/O conferences. With the introduction of Apple’s iOS 6 and Android’s Jelly Bean 4.1, which showcased new products, improved features, and a few surprises, users are even more divided. It’s the Giants vs. Dodgers all over again. Both titans announced some pretty drastic changes to their products and operating systems, but will Google be able to kick Apple out of its top spot in the mobile sphere?
Google I/O kicked off with a keynote address Wednesday morning in San Francisco, and following the introduction of Android 4.1 "Jellybean" and Google Play updates, the search giant announced its own branded tablet, the Nexus 7.
Microsoft may have impressed with its Surface tablet last week, but this week it's likely to be Google's turn, with the search giant rumored to be introducing its own seven-inch, Nexus-branded slate at the Google I/O developer conference on Wednesday.
