Jeff Bezos VS Elon Musk
There will be almost no competition between Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and SpaceX of Tesla CEO Elon Musk but not for the extraterrestrial industry.
Blue Origin, Bezos’ rocket company, was set up in 2000, whereas SpaceX was established in 2002 by Musk. Even as the two meet for dinner two years back, things were getting tense. After that, Musk said he tried to offer supportive feedback, but Benzos mostly skipped.
As SpaceX attempted to get exclusive use of a NASA launchpad in 2013, Blue Origin (along with SpaceX competitor United Launch Alliance) lodged a formal complaint with the government, their rivalry exploded. Later, the two firms became embroiled in a patent dispute, and Bezos and Musk went public with their conflict, tossing barbs on Twitter.
Elon Musk VS Bill Gates
A good rapport seems to not exist for two Elon Musk and Bill Gates, based on their recent statements to each other over the last year.
When Gates said during a February interview with YouTuber Marques Brownlee that while Tesla has aided in the innovation and adoption of electric vehicles, he didn’t buy a Tesla when he recently purchased a Porsche Taycan, things got serious.
Gates recently criticized Musk’s space plans, having to tell Kara Swisher that rockets are probably not the solution and that he’d rather invest thousands on vaccines. He also cautioned against getting caught up in the cryptocurrency craze, which Musk embraces quite often on Twitter.
Tim Cook VS Mark Zuckerberg
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple is literally foe to Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook
Beginning in 2014, Cook ironed in an interview that the free online service is a mask to use innocent users as products. That’s just a part of war of words between two. Recode’s Kara Swisher questioned Cook what to do if he were in Zuckerberg’s position after the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which personal Facebook usage data from 50 million people was hacked. He replied that is not a condition that he would be.
Cook and Zuckerberg have recently argued over Apple’s forthcoming privacy upgrade, which would give users opportunities to opt out of being watched for advertising purposes. Facebook has consistently protested the move, arguing that it threatens to ruin a portion of its market.
Elon Musk VS Mark Zuckerberg
Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have been at odds for over four years, debating over subjects as diverse as AI and rockets.
The two billionaires — the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, and the CEO of Facebook — have made their rivalry official. In 2016, after a SpaceX rocket explosion killed a Facebook satellite, Zuckerberg released a fiery statement expressing his “extreme disappointment” with the company’s loss.
Musk openly deleted his businesses’ Facebook accounts after Facebook became entangled in the Cambridge Analytica debacle, leaving a tweet saying that he was given “the willies”.
Kevin Systrom VS Jack Dorsey
Kevin Systrom, the founder of Instagram, and Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, were once close mates but fell out around the period Instagram was sold to Facebook.
As stated in Sarah Frier’s book “No Filter: The Inside Story of Instagram,” the two met as early workers at Odeo, the audio and video platform developed by future Twitter cofounders Ev Williams and Noah Glass. When Dorsey entered as a college intern in the summer mid-2000s, he intended to hate Systrom, but the two got collaborating over photography and pricey coffee.
The relationship between Dorsey and Systrom began to be tense in 2012, after Dorsey heard that Instagram had decided to be purchased by Facebook, Twitter’s major competitor. According to Frier, Dorsey was annoyed that Systrom hadn’t contacted him first to settle the contract, or even arranged one with Twitter.
Marc Benioff VS Larry Ellison
Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, and Marc Benioff, the CEO of Salesforce, met when Benioff was 23 years old and started working at Oracle. He contributed his 13 years to Oracle, where he rose through the ranks to become Ellison’s trusted lieutenant.
Quarrels have arisen for years between Benioff and Ellison: Ellison once ridiculed Salesforce, naming it an “itty bitty application” that depends on Oracle, whereas Benioff has pointed to Oracle as a “false cloud.” In 2011, Ellison requested Benioff to be excluded from the speaker lineup of Oracle’s OpenWorld meeting, alleging that Oracle worried he would deliver a better speech.
Throughout it all, though, Benioff has pointed to Ellison as a mentor. In a 2013 speech, Benioff compared Larry Ellison as the best teacher to learn from.
Steve Jobs VS Bill Gates
In the beginning, Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Microsoft CEO Bill Gates had a good partnership. At that time, Apple II software was produced by Microsoft, and Gates was also known to have regularly visited Apple’s headquarters.
But in the 1980s, Jobs went to Microsoft to negotiate with Gates about letting Microsoft produce Macintosh software. To Gates, it felt like Apple announced that it was powerful enough to produce its own software, but could still provide an opportunity for Microsoft to do it together. However, after all, they still show respect for the other, even if they are rivals. In 2011, when Steve Jobs passed away, Gates expressed his admiration for Steve Jobs and affirmed his competitive relationship to develop with Jobs.
Jack Dorsey VS Mark Zuckerberg
The two social media tycoons like the CEOs of Twitter and Facebook don’t seem to match. In particular, in the past few years, the relationship between Jack Dorsey and Zuckerberg has grown in a negative direction.
With the criticism related to Facebook’s politically-related advertising checks, Twitter shared that “political message reach should be earned, not bought,” and announced Twitter had stopped political advertising entirely last October.
On Facebook’s side, there has been a leaked recording by The Verge about Facebook CEO bluntly criticizing Twitter and claiming Facebook’s position is much larger than Twitter’s.
Finally, in December, the CEO of Twitter unfollowed Zuckerberg on the platform.
Larry Ellison VS Bill Gates
Now the relationship between Gates and Ellison is normal. However, around the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, they were people who confronted each other.
They do not seem to be between a rock and a hard place, but their long-standing relationship is due to Ellison’s attempt to surpass Gates in the 1990s.
The cause of this hostile relationship is that Bill Gates was Steve Jobs’s biggest rival, a close friend of Ellison. The peak of this hostility fell in 2000. At that time, the federal government was investigating Microsoft for antitrust violations. At this point, Ellison assumed that Microsoft was guilty and was behind the group of supporters for Microsoft. Hence, Ellison sought to help the federal government impeach Microsoft, even hire private investigators.
Evan Spiegel VS Mark Zuckerberg
From the outset, the CEO of Snap and Facebook’s relationship was not going well. The beginnings of this negative relationship began in 2012 from the actions of Snap CEO Evan Spiegel.
It was three times in a row that Facebook offered to buy Snap and was rejected by the CEO of Snap. Since then, Spiegel and Zuckerberg’s relationship has grown worse. Then there were many Snap features appearing on Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook and Instagram. Furthermore, these two people openly sarcasm each other. In addition, when a Snap feature, Story, also appeared on Facebook, Spiegel spoke out sarcastically about information leaks and Facebook user privacy. He said he would appreciate it if Facebook also copied the way Snap protected user data.
Steve Jobs VS Michael Dell
Michael Dell, founder and CEO of Dell made a negative comment about Apple when Steve Jobs’ company was in trouble in the 1997s. and Apple would be closed.
The Apple CEO was not satisfied with these comments from the Dell CEO. After that, he affirmed the superior position of Apple over Dell or HP in terms of personal computer production. He said that Apple products have a remarkable design, not just boring as other brands. After a comment from Dell that Jobs considered “rude”, the Apple CEO also confirmed that Apple products would dominate the market.
Kevin Systrom VS Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram by Kevin Systrom in 2012 for a billion dollars is a confirmation of the good relationship between the Facebook CEO and the Instagram founder.
However, lately, their relationship has not been as good as before with Systrom’s leaving because he felt that many things have not been going well. It was reported at the time that Systrom and co-founder Mike Krieger had left due to many disagreements with the Facebook CEO. Accordingly, during Systrom’s break, Zuckerberg was said to have over control, not giving Systrom access to make a magazine without permission. In addition, Zuckerberg also carried out some features that Systrom disagreed with, such as trying to track location or adding a new button to Instagram.
