Good advice. Google's stock is doing better anyway:

Yikes.

I hadn't paid much attention to Google's stock in a while (then again, I don't look much at stocks other than the couple I have interest in), but that's pretty impressive. Think they'll beat their all-time record they had in 2007?

Rough start for iOS6.
So much for the "just works" mantra. Yet, users will continue to blindly praise the company and its botched software.

I believe it is very possible. With continued momentum of smartphones and tablets, and YouTube, along with the expansion of Google Fiber + Google TV , it is very possible and highly likely Google will beat the 2007 mark. Google Fiber isn't just a test, it has the potential to become the standard. Imagine Gigabit Internet access 100 times faster than what you presently have + TV all for $120 a month, or even less. Now that's innovation.

Thing is, Apple is relying on a very limited selection of hardware to fuel their growth and are doing it in a closed ecosystem. That only works when you have great hardware, and as we have seen in the past that almost certainly can't last. At some point I would expect Google to surpass Apple in value as they have a much broader portfolio and are driving or attempting to drive technological innovations on a lot of fronts right now. From a cloud based os to self-driving cars and everyting in between, they are truly innovating. Where as Apple's last two best known innovations, Siri and Maps, were mostly bought. And most other aspects of what they are doing are simply catching up to the competition (iPhone 5 size, LTE, processor speed, etc). Sure, not everything Google tries is successful (Google TV), but that's life on the bleeding edge. They have a lot of irons in the fire right now.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no fanboy and neither company is what I would consider "good", I have major issues with the way each does business. But I am much more interested with what comes out of Google these days than Apple. You just never know what the heck they will come up with, it's fun to watch.

But, I do agree with what you said earlier about their Fiber and TV stuff. Having that kind of innertubes AND TV's for $120~ a month? I would be standing on the roof shouting (in my best Phillip J. Fry impression) "SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!"

I understand your point --- one failure and the ship goes down.

But Apple hardware has usually excellent. Not just phones -- laptops are excellent and copied, iPad is excellent and copied, even iMac.

If competitors are waiting for a failure to move ahead of apple they might wait a long time. Limited selection is a strength not a weakness. I think it lets them focus on the details.

from quoted article: "And don’t forget those clunky old PCs. While other computer makers have lost ground, sales of Macs have grown each quarter for the past six years."

But how many of those are successful businesses right now? Google is hoping that they become a successful business, while what Apple is producing in limited models already are successful businesses.
