Cringely . August 25, 2005 - Has Google Peaked?

"What if Apple introduces OS 10.5, its next super-duper operating system release, and at the same time starts loading FOR FREE the current operating system version -- OS 10.4 -- on every new iPod in a version that runs on generic Intel boxes? What if they also make 10.4 a free download through the iTunes Music Store?"

Seems a bit of a stretch to me. A big one in fact. There is no evidence for Google having peaked. Comparing Apple and Google, just the opposite in fact.

Apple Market Cap: 37.96B

Google Market Cap: 79.19B

Update: Seems Apple has outshone Google lately, despite my expectations. I'll stick by my guess that eventually competition with Dell will not be good for Apple. They will be just another Intel box, and they won't be alone in the online music business for long.
