So after that Microsoft keeps making programs for Apple for a while... but isn't too happy about the way it's explained in the presentation.

Now, about the even this was based on? Well, the story about how Microsoft once saved Apple by giving the then-struggling company 150 million... but it also turns out the common story is based on a misunderstanding and the payment was part of settlement for a lawsuit. With all these different stories around, I decided to do something slightly different for this storyline: I mixed various elements together according to what seemed to make for the most interesting story, and made it more focused on character interaction. In the end, while my comic can teach you about new events, also read up on it to find out what's really going on.

...And with that, we'll be back to the regular gaming stories again next week :D

MS should have paid Apple the same way Samsung (I think?) did. Trucks full of coins :D
IF that was actually true.

I always feel like companies put up a show of this kind and then the execs go drinking together and laughing.
It is like they shoot at each other but then you find MAC updates on Windows Live. Ah well :D
Whatever helps your product, I guess.

Haha, I heard about that, sadly it's not true and was originally from a The Onion-style fake news site... still funny though

And yeah, a lot of the competition seems to be more for show... well, fans certainly seem to get all into the whole rivalry.

I'll be proud of them if they manage to share the stage without demolishing half the building in the process. Those two are fire and oil.

In the field of technology, no big company stays on top for long, but no big company outright dies, either. Or so it seems...
