Google Buys Motorola; What does this mean for Android?

Post by tvguy347 on 8/15/2011, 7:10 pm

Google boldly bought the hardware company, Motorola, this morning for a grand total of 12.5 billion dollars. Motorola is most known for being the creators of the largely popular Droid phone series. As Apple as done, Google is now taking control of the Droids. Apple has so far had supreme control over software and hardware, and Google is now copying this. It basically admits that Google needs much more than free software and several partners to compete with Apple, but control over both components (phone and operating system). It's not just Google, either; Microsoft partnered with Nokia and HP purchased Palm earlier this year to put their WebOS on.

See? Apple was laughed at years ago, for keeping their software on devices they could control. Nope. They were the smart ones, which is now why they're the single most valuable company in the world, even having more money than the US government. People laughed at Apple for being the black sheep, but who's laughing now?

However, Android has quickly caught up with Apple. It has 33% of the market, with millions of phones shipped. Apple has reached around 20% of the market, millions shipped. But, this is based on the numbers SHIPPED and not sold, so it's not accurate. Numbers for the most recent quarter have not yet been released.

Something about this paragraph pissed me off. And I think it would even if I was a giant Apple fanboy.




Brittany: Well, family is a place where everybody loves you no matter what. And they accept you for who you are. I know I'm going to be a bridesmaid at Mike and Tina's wedding. And I'm going to be anxiously waiting just like everybody else to see if their babies are Asian too. When they find an operation to make Artie's legs work again, I'm going to be there for his first steps. I love them, I love everyone in glee club and I get to spend another year with the people I love. So, I'm good.
Santana: What about you and I?
Brittany: I love you Santana. I love you more than I've ever loved anyone else in this world. All I know about you and I is that because of that, I think anything's possible.
Santana: When did you get so smart?

The outright arrogance that came across with it. It will make me laugh even harder when Apple inevitably tumbles.

This isn't Mac vs. Windows for me or anything, I'm just letting tvguy know that Apple will not be the undisputed shit for much longer and he should enjoy this time while his overlord Steve Jobs is still on top.

Well, Microsoft already IS inevitably tumbling, and Google's core business is just from the search engine and phones, so...

Doubt they're going anywhere.

Because there's NO other competition. Right. I'm not saying it'll happen right away, but enjoy it while you can.

No, because Apple is innovative and makes quality products. They don't just rush half-assed products out. When Microsoft had buggy and chunky desktop computers, Apple had a sleek all-in-one computer. When Microsoft had clunky laptops, Apple had thin laptops. When Microsoft had problem plagued Vista, Apple had smooth and easy Leopard. There are old Mac computers that are faster than some Microsoft/Dell computers away from recent years. And meanwhile, even if Microsoft still is declining in sales, still no one comes close to matching either of them.
