Ahhh forgot to say CEOs of both companies down and away.

Steve Jobs for medical reasons leaving Tim Cook, Apple operations man, to steward the ship. And after years, Eric Schmidt who came to Google to parent the founders steps down after 9 years.

My personal opinion:
Both companies comparable in performance, though Apple has a recent spurt after iPad but how would it look in 10years?

So I'd pick GOOG, because it's young profitable and changing the world. I almost feel in 10years they'd be doing something astounding! Noting however it trades at higher P/E as compared to larger capitalized Apple.

Apple might be the blue-eyed boy in the tech industry today, but their "walled garden" ideology, where they are intent on controlling all the hardware and software channels of their business, will eventually be their downfall. Google's open source approach to their business will serve them in good stead in the coming days of cloud computing.

I doubt that. In fact I think the opposite is true. In this day and age a tech company can't just have one product, they have to diversify. And I don't know of any of Apple's products to have failed, they are all pioneer products and have been extremely successful from the first mac to thei-mac to tha mac air, i-pod, i-tunes, iphone1-4, ipad and I'm sure the ipad 2 will enjoy even more success.

Aren't their shareholders lucky that Apple didn't just stick to computers only?

I would choose Google !

and especially their in their recent innovativeness in the development of the IDEOS phone in joint venture with Huawei technologies of china.

I dont know how many have looked at the phone with the android operating system...with a promotion price of ksh 8,499 from Safaricom,the phone has many applications rivalling Iphone which is sold at a premium.Also,IDEOS phone has allowable capacity to add 60+ applications.Applause

Hate to digress, but this just sounds like KCB vs EQUITYsmileOne changed the country, though trading at a higher PE. As muganda says, you wonder where it will be in 10 years.

I have read by many sources passing so many years since that post that actually Apple is the king of the hill. It's one of the most most most company by so many characteristics that I can't even imagine. But I still do not have any of their products and do not plan to.

I used to be like you, never understood what is the hullabaloo about Apple products. That was until I acquired my first mac after replacing my laptops every year.

A Mac computer is ENGINEERED to perfection, compared to everything else in the market, this is nirvana in full colour. 3 years down the line, I am convinced I will never go back.

Apple has made a very sane choice to stick to one set of hardware selection and build everything else to fit nicely on it.

However, I still don't understand all the excitement about iOS/iPhones. Samsung is doing much better in terms of value for money, Maybe I will get it with time.

On the issue of Apple vs Google. Of course, I would strongly vouch for Google. These guys are basically the kings of the internet and the internet is going to be everything if it is not already. Only challenged by Amazon. Apple comes a distant 3rd which is still very impressive, it is not an easy game

I fully agree with notes made by NewMoney. Did you also know that there can be found antique shops where still first versions of Mac computer can be purchased, and what is most interesting, it is still operational. We are speaking of period of at least 20 years
