Notably, Google is front the longest, most products, the company with the most opponents, in almost every field. It has his giant opponent. It also shows the Google Internet data king status.

The Amazon has by virtue of Kindle Fire in flat war to up the ante, at this time, it is also test your mobile phone.
At the same time, the four companies have put the search business as to keep consumers from consumers important profit opportunities. Although Google type in the search box to search the content search patterns has been very popular over the years, now, Google rivals try to through the intelligent mobile phone devices such as mobile search, and allow a friend recommended search service to weaken the search giant's leading position.

Apple had become the American history the company with the highest market value this year.
But the defense is not enough. To see Apple will attack from what aspects, also must have a look in people's living room.
