When asked if Google is at war with Apple to win over publishers, Google exec Madhav Chinnappa said “It’s not a war,” The Telegraph reports.He was speaking at an event about One Pass, Google’s digital news subscription service which competes with Apple’s iTunes.

Of course a Google exec would say Google’s not at war with Apple.

And, if anything in business can be described that way, that is certainly a war.
