Google vs. Apple vs. Microsoft?
Google Suggest, Google Real-time Search, Google Goggle, Google Music Search … is Microsoft’s Bing or Apple’s iPhone the real competitor here?
I think it depends based on the vertical:
Google VS Apple = phones/pda
(e.g. iPhone vs Droid)
Google VS Apple = Online Music
(e.g. iTunes vs Google linking to music sites)
Google VS MSFT = Search
(e.g. Google vs Bing)
I think as the mobile phone becomes more and more important to the internet (and search) Apple will emerge as the major player for Google to compete with.
