Re: Google has an edge, will be missed by Apple users
@Charlie: you can count me in among the "teeth-gnashers" on this one. seems to me the goal should be offering th best availsble services to your customers, not playing games of one-upsmanship with competitors.
Which leads me to wonder: What, in your view, has been the most egregious example of this type of competitive one-upsmanship among tech companies that has ended up being bad for customers?
The US mishmash of cellular systems in the early days of wireless and proprietarty handsets for each carrier is one of my favorite examples for having slowed down adoption of cellular and hampered quality of services in the U.S. compared to toher countries.
