    I'm a huge fan of AAPL but it has recently been hitting me.. I think Google will lead the future eventually.

    I hate to bring up the whole lack of Steve Jobs issue but I appreciate a company taking chances and not being afraid to fail whereas Apple feels a bit neutered, they can't just keep playing around with different screen sizes forever.

    Google glass might not be a hit with the public but I can imagine everyone on the NFL working on the side lines wearing one.. along with die hard fans (watching the games right now). Something like that HAS to come.
