Another example was "Who would win a fight between a lion and an elephant" a classic match-up of power, speed, and aggression against bulk and strength. I've seen this one on film, where half or dozen or so lions - if they're hungry enough - can bring down an adult elephant, and it's horrible to see. Normally, though, a single lion is aware that it could be stomped or tusked and an elephant is wise enough not to push a lion too far. In nature, it appears, good sense prevails and that a victory isn't a victory if you're mortally wounded in the process.
Which brings me to Microsoft, Google, and Apple. All having spats with each other recently, all seemingly determined to fight it out, despite the fact that they all have the power to inflict considerable damage on each other. Hopefully, this is just testosterone at work and that good sense will prevail eventually, because one thing is for sure: the customer, you and me, will suffer if any of these guys go head to head, all guns blazing.
