Maybe Obama should invite Google CEO Eric Schmidt and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer over to the White House for a beer to settle the two companies' differences!
While he's at it, Obama might want to invite Apple CEO Steve Jobs, too, since the common cause Apple and Google once made against Microsoft now seems to be giving way to increased rivalry between the two titans of Internet cool. Or how about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, given Facebook's growing challenge to Google? Yahoo!'s Carol Bartz seems to get along much better with everyone than the boys in the group, so she'd probably help Obama keep things under control.
The Internet industry's war-of-all-against-all is reminiscent of Tom Lehrer's classic 1960s satire "National Brotherhood Week":
It's not hard to guess whom Google would be in Lehrer's ditty!
Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
And everybody hates the Jews.
