An interesting thought has occurred to me as I saw the schedule for Google’s I/O conference which starts tomorrow:
Google is trying to be Apple, but they’re completely misleading everyone. Huh, you say? Well, let me explain:
Let’s have a look at what Apple announced at WWDC:
– MacBook Pro with Retina display
– MacBook Pro
– MacBook Air
– iOS 6
– Apple Maps
– OS X Mountain Lion
Now let’s look at Google’s schedule for I/O:
– Google Cloud
– Nexus Tablet
– Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
– Google Maps
Both lists are incomplete, but you get the point.
Just for giggles: What is Apple making it’s money with? The stuff they announced, and shipped right away, at WWDC? You don’t say…
What is Google making it’s money with…to the tune of 95%+ of their entire earnings? Ads.
Google isn’t showing off their core business, they’re showing money-losing projects to make it look like they’re like Apple. But they’re not. Google is an advertising company, and it’s customers are other companies. All the products they’re expected to detail at I/O are there to help them sell more ads, not to satisfy the end-user.
Think about that for a minute.
