    Every dog has its day. Any bets on how long AAPL can keep it going?

    This is the most telling part of the article
    They have several initiatives, but so far they're not profitable.

    exactly. so far Google's still a one-trick pony.

    I believe it took awhile for the iPod and iTunes lineup to become profitable...

    I think Android will become profitable soon, it's an alright platform, the hardware is just horrendous though.

    Problem is Google's relying on ads to make money from android. it's VERY HARD to make money that way.

    Apple on the other hand makes money off of the hardware sales, apps, music, movies, accessories, etc.
