Friend and Mac360 colleague Bambi Brannan on how iPhone vs. Android has turned out very much like Mac vs. Windows:
The hundred billion or so in profits Microsoft has gathered this century have been wasted in efforts to diversify the company away from cash cows Windows and Office. What success has Microsoft had?
Google, too, has made tens of billions in profits this century, and invested a large chunk of that to diversify the company away from the cash cow of desktop search engine advertising. What success has Google had?
Apple laughs all the way to the bank.
