  • The success of Google and Apple's services will depend on the content that they make available.

    The success of Google and Apple's services will depend on the content that they make available. Similar to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, they will likely begin by making existing, popular content easier and cheaper to access, but it won't be long before they try and generate exclusive content of their own. Microsoft and Sony already have a huge lead here, so it will be interesting to see the value proposition that Google/Apple put in front of users.
