“Playing in the Clouds?”
Let me start by saying, I love Google. Although I am fairly confident they are trying to take over the world, I still think they have a “top-notch” company. The fact that they are voted best place to work and have been for at least a few years impresses me. This sets them apart as some place that people actually LIKE to work. And it is not purely for the discounts because well… unless I’m slow or they have an EXCELLENT “hook up” (yeah I said it lol “holla if you hear me uhhhh”, a small Master P reference for those who are familiar with southern rap from the 90s), what is there to really get a discount for when working at Google? If you know, please alert me, I’m curious.
Alas, Google is great and they are really expanding their offerings more and more by the day/week/month. And… I’m completely a fan of that initiative. An expansive offering is always best, especially when the consumers needs are at the forefront of the expansion. There is nothing worse (business/company wise), in my opinion than a company that innovates to begin then just sits on that innovation stagnantly for years. (You know exactly who they are…) If you begin with innovation, by all means… keep up with it! We (the people) are more than ready and willing to accept your genius.
Apple (of course) and Google are the best companies (in my humble opinion) that are not only doing this, but also achieving it and achieving it better than others, coincidentally making other companies look very bad (Blackberry).
Okay, now that you all know how I feel about both companies, I must say I have mixed feelings regarding Google Play; the newest launch from the Search Engine guru. As I watched the commercial all I could think was “hrmmm that looks so familiar” (sarcastically of course). But at the same time, I’m thinking, “Yes! Now we have a competition going”.
I was, yes WAS, a long time well, moderately long, but for a spell there I did not agree with Apple. Hard to believe I know, coming from someone more than fully immersed in the iFamily. But the facts were and still are, its hard to nearly impossible to find a better product else where. (let me brag on my MacBook Pro, named Matthew, for a second) People say they do not know what is so great about Apple, the computers and just the products in general. Heck I used to be one of them believe it or not, but it is not until you have had one of these glorious machines that you truly know the great benefits that come with it! I’ve had the others, and frankly they just aren’t as good. Cliche, but you really do get what you pay for and Apple is a much better quality.
Never-the-less, now companies are trying to catch up with Apple’s genius, but the question is… will they make it? Honestly, I’m not too sure. At this point I would love to venture and see but I’m happy with Apple. I hear that other companies have “come up” that their devices are “getting better”. NOpe, I’m not buying it. Apple would have to mess up royally, which is highly unlikely, for me to switch back. OR Google will have to come up ALOT, that is the only other I would consider. That’s just like being married then going back with the ex just to check if things got better, fully knowing that statistically people do not change and it will be just as bad as before. Frankly, I dont want to back track; my technology is too important to me lol and that’s too much at stake.
I say these things to say, the Google commercial looked cool…I love the company but….
It would be much, much better had Apple not gotten there first… it just seems like sloppy seconds now.
