Google’s benchmarks for Apple


Apple has been the company that took the modern consumer electronics products market by storm. Revolutionary gadgets like iPod, iPad, iPhone have been favorites all around and are now used as quality and creativity standard measures. Keeping that aside, Apple is not the only company to boast of outstanding tech achievements. Here’s a small peek at what Google has had under its cart which Apple could never replicate.


An online office site that is similar to Microsoft Office. To operate all that is required is a browser and an Internet connection to. Users can create and edit documents online; save them online and share them online, which pretty much explains why it’s one step ahead.


Google Fiber is a product that shows how Google has been dedicated towards its innovations. Developed as a way to cut down money on leasing space on other fiber optic systems, Google Fiber is now the fastest ISP in the U.S. with speeds of 1 GB per second.


Google Search is ‘the’ product that not just Apple but many others have unsuccessfully tried to compete with. It is one product that just has to be mentioned while talking about the best products from Google. Known as the stepping stone for Google’s success, it is now an indispensible part of the internet

Nexus 10

The specifications talk for themselves in this case. With a display resolution at 2560×1600, at 10.1 inches, which is equal to 299pixels per inch, the Samsung-built Google Nexus 10 tablet packs the world’s highest resolution tablet display ever and is also considered as one of the best tablets that one can possess right now.


The concept “Google Now” gives out a dramatic science fiction feel. It automatically alerts users when they need to leave for a meeting based on current traffic conditions, or even warns them about their flight being delayed. What it can also do is remind users of their favorite sports team playing, or perhaps receive navigation directions for the restaurant that was searched for online. All of this and more, without even having to configure anything.


A wearable head mounted display that has the capability of capturing 5- megapixel images and videos with a resolution of 720. It also features a 16GB onboard storage where the CPU could be a single core processor combined with either 256/512MB RAM. The display of the Google Glass is as good as a 25-inch HD screen viewed from a distance of eight feet.


Around six months ago, Google Play had been making a fourth of the revenue of what Apple was making from its App Store. After a 25 percent boost over the last quarter, it has cut that figure almost into half and is now neck to neck in terms of downloads.


The open source mobile platform from Google. Its open source code and permissive licensing allows the software to be freely modified and distributed by device manufacturers, wireless carriers and enthusiast developers; something which the iOS has partly achieved but is still struggling to perfect.


AdMob is the mobile advertising marketplace that connects advertisers with mobile publishers. It allows advertisers to create and target ads with plenty of detail. It is currently one of the best places to be if you are looking to be a mobile advertiser.


Finally, our own personal navigation system. Almost everyone who has planned a road trip or looked out for an aerial view of their childhood home or perhaps searched for public transport updates has used Google Maps. This free tool allows one to look at street maps, decide between routes, locate businesses and even navigate streets in 3D. Google Maps proved its superiority over Apple’s Maps when the latter product was released last year. Apple Maps, which replaced Google Maps in iOS, came with a tidal wave of errors and there were even some towns showed in wrong places.
