recent diffeculies faces by apple

the company's near term product line - as its product cycle is long; however, if Jobs' departure is permanent, as many fear, what threats

does Apple face in its industry? The biggest thorn in Apple's side is former ally Google (GOOG:Charts,News,Offers), which chaotically dominated the mobile software market by using the Microsoft strategy of free and pre-installed software. While Apple is a single hardware and software vendor, which allows it to customize and optimize its operating systems, Google has sprayed its freely distributable OS, Android, across handsets and tablets high and low, offering them lucrative profit sharing deals for their search services. In addition, Google's various applications dominate the landscape of home computing - Gmail, Maps, Docs, Books and its omnipresent search engine give the company a much larger playground to profit in, as opposed to Apple's often criticized "walled garden" philosophy. In addition, Google's lack of hardware devices offers it a high degree of flexibility and mobility, as well as lower overhead. However, various governments across the world have been setting speed bumps in Google's way, after the controversial Wifi snooping scandal made headlines across the world and its anti-competitive tactics were questioned. Google may hit costly roadblocks in its quest to dominate the Internet as we know it, while Apple has yet to hit any serious anti-trust legislation.
