As we know in this so-called modern world where everyone comes with world-changing ideas every day. People with much creativity they can earn a lot more in this billion-dollar industry of Technology. Silicon Valley is a breeding ground for rivalries. The following are some Rivalries of World’s Best Tech Leaders!
– Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk aren’t competitors in any heavenly pursuits, but they’re bitter rivals when it comes to outer space. Musk founded SpaceX in 2002, while Bezos founded his rocket company, Blue Origin, in 2000. Two years later, the pair met for dinner, and even then, things were getting a bit awkward between them.
Once, when the BBC asked Musk about Bezos, he responded, “Jeff who? as like he did not know about him” In Return, Bezos has frequently criticized the idea of colonizing Mars the main goal of SpaceX describing the idea as un-motivating.
In May 2019, Musk poked at Bezos again, calling him a copycat for Amazon’s plan to launch internet-beaming satellites. And last week, Musk repeated the claim, tweeting that Bezos is a copycat after Amazon acquired self-driving-taxi company Zoox for a reported $1.2 billion.
In July 2020, Musk made yet another stab at Bezos’ space ambitions. In an interview with The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd, took the opportunity to comment on Blue Origin, appearing to imply that Jeff Bezos is too old and Blue Origin too slow to ever make real progress.
“The rate of progress is too slow and the amount of years he has left is not enough, but I’m still glad he’s doing what he’s doing with Blue Origin,” Musk said.
-Kevin Systrom and Jack Dorsey
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Instagram founder Kevin Systrom started out as close friends but had a falling out around after the time Instagram was sold to Facebook.
The Dorsey-Systrom relationship appeared to have unpleasant in 2012 when Dorsey found out that Instagram had signed a deal to be bought by Facebook, Twitter’s biggest rival. According to Frier, Dorsey was hurt that Systrom hadn’t called him first to discuss the deal, or to negotiate one with Twitter instead. Dorsey hasn’t posted to his Instagram account since April 9, 2012, when he snapped a photo of an unusually empty San Francisco city bus according to Frier, it was taken the morning he found out Instagram had sold. While Systrom had been quiet on Twitter for the last few years, he’s recently begun using the platform again, and the pair even recently had a pleasant tweet exchange.
-Elon Musk and Bill Gates
Elon Musk and Bill Gates both don’t appear to have a good relationship, at least if their comments about each other over the last six months are any indication. Things heated up in February when Gates said during an interview with YouTuber Marques Brownlee that” while Tesla has helped drive innovation and adoption of electric vehicles, he didn’t buy a Tesla when making a recent vehicle purchase he bought a Porsche Taycan”. In response, Musk tweeted that his conversations with Gates have always been underwhelming. Afterward, in July, Gates said in an interview on CNBC’s that Musk’s comments on COVID-19 are “outrageous,” as Musk has frequently downplayed the severity of the virus and questioned how the US has handled its coronavirus response.
“He is not much involved in vaccines. He makes a great electric car. And his rockets work well. So he’s allowed to say these things. I hope that he doesn’t confuse areas he’s not involved in too much.” Musk took to Twitter a few days later to taunt Gates, tweeting, “Billy G is not my lover” and “The rumor that Bill Gates & I are lovers is completely not true.”
-Tim Cook and Mark Zuckerberg
There is no love lost Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.between and Apple CEO Tim Cook The two have traded insults from the past years, beginning as early as 2014, when Cook said in an interview that “when an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.” Zuckerberg was reportedly so incensed by Cook’s comments that he asked executives to switch to Android phones. In a company blog post in 2018, Facebook confirmed the exchanging word between the two execs: “Tim Cook has consistently criticized our business model and Mark has been equally clear he disagrees.” But the tension between Cook and Zuckerberg came to a head in the aftermath of Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which private Facebook user data was stolen from 50 million users. In 2018, Recode’s Kara Swisher asked Cook what he would do if he was in Zuckerberg’s shoes, to which he responded in a rivalry manner: “What would I do? I wouldn’t be in this situation.”
Conclusion: In Conclusion, I would say all the above Tech Execs are better in their own way changing the world with their mind-blowing ideas and work for the enhancement of a modern world. They Should Recognize their work for the technology and there must be appreciation between them all for what they are doing right now no matter what. All should sit on one table and work together to make a world a better place to live on & keep enlightening the Technology world. Thanks!
