Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

So.. If I understand your logic correctly, the best company to buy products from is one that makes more money off of me?

I prefer to buy high quality devices at lower prices and make decisions on purchases on things other than the operating system designier's quarterly profits.

I think he is speaking in terms of morality, as in what is best for everyone and not for an individual who is only concerned for himself. In other words, perhaps your purchase might help create a job for someone who is unemployed.

Besides, I doubt if a American company would make more money, since expenses are higher.

Microsoft does all its profits in shrinking markets while googles still grow. If Microsoft is not able to move to other markets and make there software plus services a success, then time hits them.

Apple did succeed on that transition. I doubt Microsoft ever will.

True. MS really does not have anything but Windows and Office that make massive profits.

Windows (PCs generally), office, gaming markets are all growing...
(and the last of those three offers nice example of very successful recent MS expansion into new business models)
