    Smile Apple mocks Mircrosoft Window's logo!

    Have you ever been to Apple's iCloud Calendar support page. You will be surprised to see the picture of a real window to indicate Microsoft Windows! Isn't that strange?

    But it is still a mystery why apple has used the image of an actual window instead of Microsoft Windows logo. It is said that Microsoft also mocked Apple in the past with its commercials. May be it is a sweet revenge.

    But it's quite funny to see the real window with four blocks there.

    I think big corporations like these two will take the opportunity to mock their rivals any chance they get to be honest, and while in the grand scheme of things it won't make much difference, they'll get a little satisfaction from it.

    That's no strange! These big players have been mocking each other in the past as well. However, from your descriptions it seems Apple is in a mocking mood. :P
    Last year, even a Chinese giant OPPO mocked Samsung over it's rapid charging technology that came with Galaxy Note 3, and came up with a more interesting rapid charging technology that claimed to charge the phone from 0 to 75% in just 30 minutes.

    I think a little competition between these manufacturers can only be a good thing for the consumer. As these giants compete with each other, they're developing more and more technology to try and gain the upper hand and that gives more options to the consumer.

    Yes, a bit of one-upmanship is common with large corporations such as these. One company wants to portray itself better than it's competitor. I'm not a fanboy of either, both have their strengths and weaknesses. But I feel that Microsoft will be on an upward trajectory after their recent announcements. Apple is not the same without Steve Jobs who was truly a visionary.

    I think you are right. There is nothing serious about it I think. As the competition becomes stiffer, the ultimate beneficiary would be the end user as he will be able to get good features at affordable prices. This is true in case of mobiles too.

    Up to some level, competition is good, but unhealthy competition is not good like what Volkswagen did. They were just cheating the Government by secretly having a program in cars which will help to give fake results in pollution tests. In reality the emission was much higher than the allowed limits. It finally led to the resignation of the CEO.

    Microsoft and Apple basically hate each other so it is no surprise that they would do this.

    That's quite a common thing in the tech world. Many brands use to mock each other on their offering, Oppo and Samsung being one of them. I don't find it surprising at all.
