Microsoft and Apple- both these tech giants brought computers to the fingertips of people all around the world. Both got their start around the same time and both became iconic worldwide brands in a short period of time. Both diversified in different directions yet still competed fiercely for market share. But who delivers the better products? And who, out of these two, are the more user friendly and globally compatible? Which of these two giants is the biggest, the best, the fairest, and ultimately superior? They both have their own pros and cons for sure, and as we will see in Today’s episode of the Infographics Show they each have their own brilliant histories. Let’s have a look at these two tech giants in today’s show – Microsoft Vs Apple.

Apple is consumers targeted while MS is corporates targeted though the reality isn't accepted by neither company. A lot of people at work don't know what Win10 looks like. When I ask them the type of devices they have at home, most answer they got either an iPad or a Macbook.
The only Apple product I've ever owned was a used Apple Newton, given to me cost free. They just don't appeal to me. Every time I consider buying a new electronic device, I look at various products' feature sets, and the competition is invariably better.
When I need to take notes in class, check email, type essay...I use my MacBook. When I need to do real work, i.e. use some softwares for molecular biology research, I always fall back to a windows workstation.
Really Apple never given the chance to those people to come closer to technology affordably, but MS did it. Whatever the Apple's products, If you want it you need to pay a lot of money, event it a small cable.
From my experience Microsoft is better. My first PC was a Microsoft+Linux pc, apple was too expensive then and is still now. In college I was having an argument with my friend supporting Apple that Microsoft doesn't have any role in the hardware prices, however in my opinion it is the only reason that PC's are affordable. They created a product that can run on a huge number of hardware that was easy to learn, compared to linux which depended of command line interface a lot. d
Due to this manufacturers trageting low to high end customers started competing in terms of hardware as they knew they dont have to worry on the software, and eventually prices got low to the point we see now. In the other case if Microsoft made their own hardware you bet they would have increased their prices if it sold well (just like the rising iphone/ samsung prices). People complain that Microsoft sucks as they are not optimised however they made a product that can run on everything and it takes time to optimise all of them. The blame should be on manufacturers and Microsoft both.
Microsoft provided free computers back in my village(2005) for free and setup the internet infrastructure as part of their csr activity, and hundreds of kids who never saw a computer before got to experience it and I will always respect them for that.
I have a surface book, but the idea of getting into the Apple ecosystem is very appealing. All of their products have superb build quality and it's by far the most cohesive tech ecosystem in the world. The rest of the companies all seem fragmented in comparison.
I have used both the computer , in home i use windows laptop ,i have 5 laptop and only one is working, i work with a mac book pro in office , mac is very user friendly and its amazing speed and their display quality is great.But if i wanted to buy one i need work at least for 3 years here to buy one mac, so i will go with windows.
Apple is just stupid. They lie to people dude. Their products have so many stupid problems even to this day. This year's Macbook Pro has heat throttling problem. The iPhones? Well, I don't have to explain.
Fact check: Microsoft didn't develop DOS. They bought it.
As for which is more successful, as much as I hate them, the winner is Microsoft. One of the things left out in the video is that Apple almost went under and Microsoft bailed them out. This was back when Microsoft was under fire for being a monopoly so they invested in Apple and were able to convince people that they were not a complete monopoly because Apple was still around.
It was also Microsoft with their software that allowed anybody to build their own computers and get everyone using a computer in their home, school, and at work. Apple can't hold a candle to that level of impact. The iPhone, for reasons unknown to me is popular, but it's just one device. Macs are still not nearly as successful as PCs (and support for games sucks on MacOS).
Sure by the numbers, Apple is on top now, but it won't last. Their computers and devices are prohibitively expensive to most folks and it's only a matter of time before people switch back to PCs because PCs are cheaper, perform better, can be upgraded, and most importantly: CAN BE FIXED BY ANYONE WITH THE KNOWLEDGE TO DO SO. Apple goes out of its way to make it so that ONLY APPLE CAN FIX APPLE PRODUCTS. Apple's model is not sustainable and will eventually either implode or end up with a crap ton of regulations to protect consumer rights (or both).
Microsoft and Apple are very good computer for work in the gaming section Microsoft takes the lead in video production Apple is phenomenal, now, now I'm not saying Microsoft is terrible at video production the come very close. I think cortana is way better than siri.
I guess he didn't do enough research on that topic. Microsoft is clearly one of the first company to make an OS for smartphones. Also, I heard that early-day Microsoft was making software exclusively to Apple's system, but somebody (namely IBM) wants a OS, so they contacted Microsoft and the rest is history.
You can't just say that the truth is that neither are better because that's an impossibility. One is certainly better/bigger/more successful. Apple is dominating right now. Why? Because people actually want apple's products. Most people buying a windows PC do it because it's cheaper. Not because they actually want it. This is why customer satisfaction is much higher with Apple.
If we only had Apple we'd be fine.
You are missing a good chunk of information on Microsofts surface team. Microsoft is now getting much more attention. You're really doing them a disservice. Especially in the enterprise market where they are very dominant.
You have a couple of things wrong. Microsoft, right from the beggining had the explicit goal of a computer on every home, not apple. Also nowadays choosing a windows device does not, by any means, mean that you have to choose a cheap product. The beauty of windows is that you can choose anything from a cheap laptop all the way to an expensive alienware or surface book.
I think that the main reason Microsoft is a superior company is that they don´t have all the eggs in one basket like Apple do with the iphone. Even if windows was gone tomorrow Microsoft would be fine. If people stop buying iphone apple is screwed.
Apple has the brand that everyone wishes they had.
There is so much momentum there, that they can ride it out for years after Steve Jobs died.
Brand loyalty = automatic brand support regardless of the products.
This wasn't good in the USA when customers were proud to "buy American" even if foreign cars were getting better.
Mind share has a measurable effect on consumer purchases, you must factor it in.
Having the "best products" is only a part of the equation.
The best thing for consumers would be if everyone evaluated each product as it comes out and switched to a competitor when they were let down by a company.
This would force companies to give the consumer what they want.
Apple thwarts competition by making their stuff incompatible and proprietary.
A walled echo-system, so you have to be either IN or OUT.
If products and services all worked interchangeably, and you could pick which ones you liked from any company.
I'd like to use some Apple products, but their "All or nothing" approach repels me into Windows/ Android.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
