“Apple making software that anyone can connect to is a very Google play, while Google developing beautiful hardware with Nest is a very Apple play,”
This sounds exciting. The above quote also refers to the kindof integration/collaboration/cooperation I have bemoaned as missing from the “The Big 5″ Internet companies (Twitter, Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook) I’ve spent the late spring and all summer reading about. If these companies could start deciding to draw on each other’s strengths, some big things could happen. I guess it takes independent moves like this to get the others to begin realizing it.
