The race is indeed on. Google, Apple, Twitter, and Facebook all want to be the hub of where you find, consume, and share this content with others. Companies like Amazon, Microsoft, and Netflix are all in the mix as well, but with slightly different approaches.
This race is where Steve Jobs was so ahead of the rest of the industry. He saw Apple devices as the hub of the home, the entertainment system of the early 21st century. Even if people choose another software alternative like Facebook or Twitter to find and consume content, if they’re doing it on Apple devices, Apple wins.
I vote for Twitter, cause it is free, so far anyway, and it doesn’t mess with my life (privacy is important) like the others. Oh, and it has a lotta sports & media folks who I love and respect. Everyone else wants my money, lots of money in the case of Apple. Went bankrupt riding that Apple horse.
