A timely reality check; read the full article 

Sure Apple doesn't sell ads, and Google doesn't make hardware, but look at everything else. Google and Apple do compete in a number of areas. As I said before, there is a laundry list of categories in which they compete:

  • Smartphone software. iPhoneOS vs. Android
  • Webpage building software iWeb vs. Google Pages
  • Calendar software - iCal vs. GCal
  • Document writing software - iWork vs. Google apps (Docs, spreadsheets and presentations)
  • Feed reading software Mail.app vs. Google reader.
  • Email software Gmail vs. Mail.app
  • OS Software: MacOS vs. Android Linux
  • The both give away photo editing software - Picassa vs. iPhoto.
  • Web Browsers (both based on the same Open Source Webkit and sold for free) Safari and Chrome
  • Web Services with Apple's MobileMe and Google's Google Apps and Gmail.
  • Video services - Youtube vs. iTunes
