Rachel Feltman, Quartz:
Gadgets like Chromebooks and iPhones have become so commonplace that Google and Apple have lost their edge.
Chromebooks? Commonplace? They do quite well for sub-$300 laptops, but that’s a small slice of the overall notebook market. Wouldn’t Android phones be a better example?
While Google may have slipped off the top five, Apple’s sitting at number two. In fourth place is LG, and in fifth is Skype — all of these companies are implicated in the PRISM controversy. I do wonder how that will affect all of them.
