Why Google still Wins for now. Stop your biiitching.
They miss the BIG PICTURE. Google launches ideas, gets immediate feedback - no shipping, no packaging, no manufacturing. They are brains in a room. They will be wrong. Not as wrong as NEWCoke or Microsoft B(L)OB by the way!
They can have a much higher failure rate. All it does is solidify their old way of selling ads anyway while they probe.
When Dell has a bomb, they have design, manufacturing, printing, distribution, packaging and finally customer service costs.
Same for the old Microsoft way of packaged software goods.
Google - fires a brain and a marketing terd. By the sound of the blogosphere on Google Video Ads - two brainiacs were released this afternoon. They will miss the food from what I hear :)
